Jim Valovic

James Valovic Co-OwnerJim is one of the two owners here at Van's, the other one is his brother Paul. Jim is the main link behind the sales staff and their connection with the customers. He is responsible for bringing the PACE and PHD programs to Van's. He makes sure were running on the technology of today, whether it be training for the staff or time for a whole new approach. Don't think that Jim just picks up on the passing fads. Van's would not be in business for 50 years if Jim didn't understand the saying "Here Today - Gone Tomorrow". In addition to keeping everyone up-to-date he also heads our Promotions Department, and this is no small task. He takes charge of all of the newspaper/magazine ads, direct mailings, fashion shows, fund raisers, HOG events, and this web page. Our fund raiser that we hold for Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) every year has been the largest single day fund raiser in NYS for 15 consecutive years. Check out our page of up-coming events and you'll see what I mean. He also keeps pace with the pulse of the aftermarket products that are available to the full line of HD motorcycles. He just got back from the Custom Chrome Trade Show out in California, stop in and see what they had to offer. Whether you want to create a customized Fat Boy or the fastest Sportster , Jim would be the one you would want to talk to.

And as they say, "Behind every successful man there is a successful woman.", Jim's wife Barbara has been working in the accounting department for the past several years. 

Jim's newest "Custom Creation", is a '01 XR1200.  Jim's got it maxed out with the Stortz Flat Track aluminum gas tank and rear fender that's sporting the orange and black of Harley Davidson.  Wide flat track bars and the classic flat tracker 2-in-to-2 Supertrap stainless steel exhaust.   He also dropped in the latest 42mm Mukini, and Scream'n Eagle air cleaner, to make that engine do what is is suppose to do - Breathe Heavy! Of course, this bike has been finely tuned on our state-of-the-art DynoJet facility.

If you want to see what I'm talking about stop in during our Custom Bike Show in May. We will have on display several of Van's "Custom Creations" that Jim and Howard have put together. Maybe someday you're bike will be on display as one or our special "Custom Creations".
