At J&P Cycles, we make it a matter of pride to work hard and play hard, and Cinco de Mayo was a day when we played hard.

This year, we did things a little different. Instead of the usual employee appreciation event, we added a Cinco de Mayo celebration to it and every manager, supervisor and team lead donned a sombrero, decorated by their peers.
In addition, many also wore great-looking, festive costumes in observance of … Continue Reading

If you’ve actually seen the show, you’ve followed these two “pickers” as they scour the back roads of America, looking for long-forgotten treasures in barns, garages and sheds.

There to greet them were more than 2,500 fans, lining up all day for the opportunity to shake hands with Wolfe and Fritz and have them autograph a photo.
