J&P Cycles Open House Debrief

jeffhaberman1jeffhaberman2The J&P Cycles Open House celebrating the company 30th Anniversary was a huge success with very conservative final numbers putting the attendance at 22,000 bikers. “We are extremely satisfied with the results of the weekend, both in terms of visitors and sales. We are sure that this will send an jpcyclesopenhouseimportant message to the entire market – the interest in riding is alive, probably more than ever”  declared J&P Cycle’s owner John Parham. The “Classic Bike & old School Bikeshow” had a lot of very rare entries with Jeff Haberman featured here winning the Judge’s Choice trophy.  John Parham, probably the largest collector of antiques in the US, unveiled for the 1st time to the public its latest vintage acquisitions. Some VIP’s of the industry attended the event and I let you recognize them on this picture (pictures Colleen Swartz & Horst Roesler)

    The JP Party was wonderful! What I wanted to mention was how well organized and gracious everyone was. Tons of staff there cleaning up the grounds, handing out free water and soda and hamburgers and hot dogs, the whole works.
    After getting so used to paying to get in, paying for parking, just to spend gobs more money at an event, it was so refreshing to have so much fun and then be offered a cool bottle of water on the house. It was a class act show all the way through. Thank you John for having me. It was a pleasure.

    John, Jill, Zack and the J and P crew Parham did an outstanding job. It was so refreshing to go to an event where it was more like a customer appreciation event where the attendees were treated to free everything right down to the food. John is a true gentleman of our industry. Congratulations to everyone at J and P for an outstanding and top notch event. One would have to experience it 1st hand to truly appreciate it.

    John, Jill, and Zac Parham have done it again putting together a terriffic event with a style you just don’t see these days. Great folks enjoying our hobby with the enthusiasts as the focus. Real mid west hospitality from the leaders in their field. When they say thanks to their customers in such a class way, it’s very refreshing.
    As the movie story line goes, “Build it and they will come” John and Jill spent thirty years building it and “Boy did they come”
