HONDA MOTORCYCLE PARTS AND PARTS REPAIRS AND SALE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HOUSTON, AUSTIN, WASHINGTON, D.C., AND LOS ANGELES, DALLAS AND SAN FRANCISCO, according to the Honda Motorcycle Parts and Parts Recovery and Salvage Association (HMPSRA).
The association announced the opening of its Houston location on Monday.
HMPSRA was formed in June of this year to work with the state of Texas and local governments to preserve and restore motorcycle parts in Houston.
The association will also operate the newly opened H&M Houston location.
HMSSA was formed with the goal of providing access to parts and accessories for the millions of motorcycles in the Houston area.
HMMSA’s Houston branch will offer a one-stop shop for parts and apparel that can be repaired and serviced at the local shop.
HMBSA’s Sacramento branch will be the only one that accepts parts and clothing.
“It’s really about getting the parts and gear out of the way of our customers and our workers, and providing them with the tools they need to get their motorcycle back to its glory days,” said Jim Stroud, president and CEO of HMPSEA.
“We’ll be providing them a safe place to buy parts, equipment and supplies, and we’ll be there for them at the same time.”
In addition to providing a safe, convenient location for customers, the association has partnered with Harley Davidson and Harley Racing, as well as other major motorcycle manufacturers, to create an online resource where customers can purchase parts and equipment for their motorcycles.
It is expected that the online resource will continue to grow as more and more companies are partnering with the association to help customers with their parts needs.
The new locations will also serve as a safe haven for parts from other dealerships that are not able to make it to Houston due to a lack of supplies.
HMpsRA has partnered up with local bike shops, motorcycle repair shops, and local organizations to help restore and maintain parts for the Houston community.
“This is an important step in the restoration of motorcycle parts,” said Harley Davidson President, Dave Smith, in a press release.
“The Honda brand has been around for decades, and with the success of this new Houston location, we look forward to continuing to build a stronger relationship with our dealers, as we have with other parts and accessory retailers.”
In April, Honda released its “Bike to Work” campaign, highlighting the importance of a motorcycle’s fuel tank and fueling system.
“We have made the effort to provide fuel, service and repair for our customers.
That’s a big part of the job, and it’s been a great opportunity for our workers to get the best fuel and service they can from the best parts available,” Smith said in a statement.
“Honda Motorcycles has always been committed to providing customers with the best possible service and we look to them to do the same.”
The association is also looking for a motorcycle repair shop owner who can help in the rescue of old motorcycle parts.
HMSA is asking for volunteers to help.
