Welcome to Thornton's Motorcycle Sales

Thornton's Motorcycle Sales began many years ago when John Thornton decided to sell and repair used motorcycles. He did this mostly as a hobby, as he worked third shift at a factory and did his "motorcycling" during the day. In 1970, John made the decision to make motorcycling a career. He built a very small block building on the property beside his home, and started business. The first franchise carried was Hodaka. Suzuki was added in the spring of 1975. In 1976, the business had outgrown the little block building, and a larger facility was built next door. (This "larger" building has been added onto many times. There are now approximately 24,000 sq feet under roof, including warehouse.) Several more franchises have been added over the years, including Honda in 1979, and Kawasaki in 1993.
