J&P Cycles Hosting Motorcycle Parts Swap Meet

May 19, 2010 | By: Kim Brislawn

The first of four fun-filled
summertime swap meets is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Sunday, May 23, on the sprawling J&P Cycles world headquarters in Anamosa, Iowa.

In fact, J&P Cycles and “motorcycle swap meet” are pretty much synonymous, because J&P has a rich history with such events. It’s how our founders — John and Jill Parham — got their business off the ground more than three decades ago. Simple flyers stating parts J&P had available for sale at their makeshift swap meets is what led to the first J&P catalog. Today, the company is headquartered on a parcel the size of a good city block that has become a Mecca of sorts for motorcycle riders across the country.

“Swap Meets have always been near and dear to my heart,” said John Parham. “When I was working to get J&P® going, those simple flyers started it all. I am thrilled to bring this event directly to J&P® and hope the public enjoys it as much as I have,” he adds.

If you’re interested in being a vendor, 10×20 spaces are available for only $20. Contact Mary Beth at mbhanna [at] jpcycles [dot] com for additional details. Additional dates for this year’s event are Sunday, July 25; Sunday, Aug. 22; and Sunday, Sept. 19. Admission is free and there’s plenty of free parking onsite.

Kuryakyn AirMaster Universal Deluxe Fairing with Audio Sytem. Does J&P carry this item and if not, will you? Been looking for a fairing (05 Yamaha Roadstar Midnight Silverado). All have pros and cons, but Kuryakyn, it has to be top of the line. Found it on dollarrider.com

Will the swap meets ever be held on a Saturday??
Thanks !

The Swap Meets this year will be held on Sunday’s – however, we will re-evaluate it when planning 2011. Hope you can attend this event – it will be a lot of fun!
