Mustang Joins the Fun at Doc’s Customer Day Festivities

14 Sep

Waterbury, Connecticut is the place to be on Sunday, Sept. 19, when Doc’s Motorcycle Parts hosts its 41st Annual Customer Day and Bike Show, highlighted by a motorcycle design competition featuring 30 bike classes, trophies and cash prizes. This once-a-year-event takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and activities will be spread out all over Doc’s property at 1625 Thomaston Ave. in Waterbury.

There are also thousands of parts on hand for foreign and domestic bikes, as well as street bikes, dirt bikes and ATVs. If you need a Harley part, chances are good that you’ll find it at Doc’s.

That’s a far cry from the store’s humble beginnings after Doc returned from a four-year stint in the military in 1968. He couldn’t find parts for his motorcycle and discovered that the (more…)
