40 Years and Still going…

This Year marks the 40th Year that Doc’s Motorcycle Parts has been in business and they look as though they are ready for 40 more after their 40th Customer Day Celebration and Bike Show help on September 20th. Over 3000 people attended what was a beautiful day.  Complete with over 80 Bikes that entered into the Bike Show where we saw David Leslia’s Indian take home the top Trophy for Best in Show.  Another big winner was James Prunty, who’s 9/11 Tribute Bike not only brought out emotions in all of us, but also took home Trophies for People’s Choice and 2nd place Best in Show, James then showed what bikers are all about, donating his $1,000 Cash prize back to the Veterans and Fire Fighters of NYC.  And with the Yankees ready to start another Playoff run, it was fitting that with the help of Ct. Cruise News very own Don Clady, the crowd was treated to the “Yankee” Tribute Bike owned by Angelo Ortisi, which was a big crowd pleaser.  And if the “Yankee” Bike was a big hit, an even bigger hit was the special guest appearance by “America’s Strongest Man” Derek Poundstone.  Derek who was scheduled to leave for the Worlds Strongest Man competition in Malta 2 days later took photos and signed autographs all day.

But behind every great business, there is always someone who makes it all happen.  And Doc’s wouldn’t have their success or reputation without Doc D’Occhio himself and his wife Wendy.  But after speaking with Doc, he remains as humble as ever, and gives the credit for the stores success to you the customers, “I can’t thank our customers enough for all their support over the years, some guys have been with us for every one of the 40years. Because of you, there is a Doc’s Motorcycle Parts.”  As always, all of the gate money went to the Waterbury Veterans Committee, and through your generosity over $3400 Dollars was donated.  Over the years Doc’s has been able to raise Hundreds of Thousands of dollars for local charities.

Doc’s would love to see you, so if you’re in the area, stop in and say hello.  We will continue to have great savings and discounts to celebrate our 40 years in business until the end of the year.  You can also check us out on the web at or sign up to become a fan on FaceBook at FACEBOOK.  Doc’s would also like to thank Don Clady and Cruise News for your coverage, not only of us, but also of all events and news.  Don’t forget to enter the Ct.
