The Cannonball Run Makes a Stop in Anamosa

5

September 14, 2012 | By: Patrick Garvin

The 2012 Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run was set to come through Anamosa (where I live) on Monday with the National Motorcycle Museum as a scheduled stop. I was all fired up to see the parade of bad ass old bikes come through, so I decided to take the day off.

I made my way down to the Museum about 10 a.m., where I learned there was a broken down bike on its way here and I was asked if I would help. I quickly said yes and headed up to the J&P shop to meet up with fellow J&P volunteer wrench Sean Salger. Shortly after, a sprinter van pulled up … Continue Reading

February 13, 2012 | By: Scott Holton

We’ve been debating for the last 12 months or so when is the right time to update our popular J&P Cycles’ Vintage Catalog. And the irony is that by now, our vintage book is vintage in and by itself.

But we’ve corrected that situation and, in fact, we promise to issue a new Vintage Catalog on an annual basis from here on out. Seriously. We promise — new year means new vintage catalog. You can bank on it.

Scheduled for release real soon, the J&P Cycles Vintage Catalog Volume No. 8 will be packed page to page with more than 13,500 individual part numbers. And a whopping 1,500 of those … Continue Reading

Eastern Iowa may not be at the top of anyone’s list for vacation spots, but if your enthusiasm leans toward moveable vehicles on two wheels, Anamosa, Iowa, is your Midwest Mecca.

Not only is Anamosa the home of J&P Cycles, it’s also just up the road apiece from the National Motorcycle Museum. And we celebrated the museum’s first-ever Vintage Rally event the first weekend of June, with more than 1,600 in attendance. And all those folks weren’t Eastern Iowa natives, either. We had people rolling in from all over the country, including Texas, South Carolina and Pennsylvania.

Sixty-six bikes were registered for Saturday’s Vintage Bike Show and awards … Continue Reading
