About Malcolm Smith Motorsports

Malcolm started working for Pappy Motts of Motts' Cycles in San Bernardino when he was fifteen, eventually landing at K&N Motorcycles. He moved up quickly at K&N and eventually bought the dealership from Norm McDonald. He renamed and reopened the relatively modest motorcycle dealer and repair shop in Riverside, California in 1966. During the next 30 years the dealership flourished and expanded into larger locations. After steady growth in the 90's, Malcolm decided that it was once again time to raise the bar and began construction on what was to become the standard for which all other dealerships would be judged. After three years of construction, Malcolm moved his dealership to the current location at 7599 Indiana Avenue near Madison and the 91 freeway. The current location opened November 2006 as Southern California's premier motorsports destination. In 2009, Malcolm Smith Motorsports was named “Number One Dealer in the Country” by Dealernews Magazine…Malcolm had once again won gold.
