The Early Days
In 1963, Speed & Sport was founded by Gary and Judy Hilgenberg as an Ames, Iowa, Triumph motorcycle dealership. The line of new Suzuki motorcycles was soon added (as Suzuki dealer number 27 in the U.S.), as was Bultaco. Other minor brands were carried from time to time before the purchase of the local Yamaha shop in 1975.
In 1978, they sold the major part of the business and relocated to Arizona to concentrate on other commercial interests, while still owning a small British cycle shop.
