K&L Supply Co.

San Jose, California, USA

K&L Supply was started in 1968 by founder Joseph Lee, as a small motorcycle service and repair shop in the heart of Santa Clara, California.  As the powersports industry began to take off, K&L Supply gradually transitioned into becoming a parts retailer to fill the rising need for motorcycle parts.  By the 1990’s, K&L Supply began to focus on the equipment side of the industry by selling tire changers, balancers, lifts, as well as manufacturing its own equipment.  Since then, K&L Supply has since expanded its services past the powersports industry and into the automotive space by partnering with Honda while offering additional services such as Logistics and Manufacturing to meet customer demands.
