JRC was established in 1974, in Costa Mesa, Ca. by John R. Calicchio (JRC). John was an innovator and very quickly became the number one Bultaco dealer in the western states.
John began supplying Triumph parts to riders having trouble with the factories lack of inventory. John eventually sold the Bultaco/Suzuki dealership to concentrate on his first love. His ever expanding parts inventory included supply from LF Harris in the UK. When Triumph America closed, John was the successful bidder on the assets of the company and immediately jumped to the head of the line as the OE supplier of choice. John was appointed exclusive distributor for the LF Harris Bonneville, but due to insurance issues none found their way into the USA.
John couldn't rest however and seeing a need for decent business software launched Data Business systems, a computer software company that eventually moved into hardware production as well. John determined to sell JRC and concentrate on his blossoming software business. Bill Getty, the current president of the company, was operating a specialty shop "British Parts old & new" in Whittier Ca. at the time and approached John about buying the company. A deal was struck in 1987 and the company moved to Riverside Ca.
From that original 1400 foot building we have expanded first to Perris Ca. and a 2000 foot building, soon expanded to 4000 feet and a separate 2600 foot building added in 2004. In 2011 a move to the present facility in Indian Palms business park in Perris formalized the direction the company would take for the future. With room to expand further within the park JRC looks forward to a bright future.

"I have been a JRC customer since late 2001 when Bill was kind enough to give me a shot at being a dealer despite only being in business for a few months. Nearly fifteen years later, I still order my British parts almost exclusively through JRC. In a world where there are several outfits that sell parts for British bikes Continue ReadingWes Four Aces Cycle
