Warren Bales, then a tuner of Corvair rally cars, decided to branch out into the motorcycle business. Soon his business outgrew the little garage and was moved into the new store on highway 68 just north of Xenia in the mid 60's.
At various times the Xenia store was a dealership for Ducati, Norton, Triumph, BMW, Penton, Yamaha, and Husqavarna.
The Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton was nearby and many of our original customers were from the U.S. Air Force. Military personnel tended to move frequently, so when the airmen packed up and headed to their new posts but still needed parts and accessories for their bikes they simply called up their old friends at Competition Accessories. That started us on our growth as one of the best-known direct merchants of aftermarket parts in the world: Competition Accessories. In 1993, Competition Accessories moved to Springfield, Ohio, into the much larger 64,000 square foot building where the motorcycle and ATV superstore still operates today.
In 2009 we moved the Business to Rock HIll, SC into our new 34,000 distribution center and catalog outlet store.
Over the past 50 years, Competition Accessories has gone through many changes, but our customers should always remember: no matter how big the business gets, we're never far from that tiny garage in Xenia... Give us a call; we are happy to help you with all your motorcycling needs.
