J&P Cycles Kicks Off It’s Second Year of Motorcycle Parts Swap Meets

May 16, 2011 | By: Angi Kearney

The first of three fun-filled summertime motorcycle swap meets for 2011 is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this coming Sunday, May 22, on the sprawling J&P Cycles world headquarters in Anamosa, Iowa.

J&P Cycles and “motorcycle swap meets” are pretty much synonymous because we have such a rich history with biker events. Our founders — John and Jill Parham — got the business off the ground 32 years ago. In fact, it was simple flyers highlighting motorcycle parts the couple had for sale at their makeshift swap meets that led to the very first J&P catalog. Today, the company is headquartered on a parcel of land the size of a good city block that’s kind of a Mecca for motorcycle riders across the country.

Even now, John Parham says he gets a kick out of the camaraderie that comes with a swap meet event. The first official J&P catalog got its start because of our swap meet adventures. And he’s proud to bring J&P Cycles back to its roots for a second annual series of swap meet events.

If you’re interested in being a vendor, 10-by-20-foot spaces are available for only $20. Contact Mary Beth Hanna at mbhanna [at] jpcycles [dot] com for details. Additional dates for this year’s event are Sunday, July 17, and Sunday, Sept. 18. Admission is free and there’s tons of free parking onsite.

Hi there J P Cycle People:

I bought a 2000 Heritage Softail Springer last year from Doctor that only put 2200 miles on it in 10 years.

I want to find front and rear fender tips for it but the parts are no longer made as they are obsolete.

I see fender tips for EVERY other kind of motorcycle except this FLSTS Springer that I have and am wondering if there is a way that you can wave your magic wand and let me know where either YOU are hiding them or who makes them.

Thanks and I hope you have some good news for me soon.
