Family PowerSports has expanded as Texas’ largest volume motorcycle/ATV group as it bought Longhorn PowerSports of Weatherford, Texas, on Friday, June 29, according to a Family PowerSports press release.
The new store will specialize in Yamaha and Suzuki motorcycles and ATVs. Family PowerSports Weatherford is among three stores that sell exclusively motorcycles and ATVs. The other two locations carry motorcycles, ATVs, personal watercraft and boats.
Morris Baker, owner of Family PowerSports, started his business in 1996 with the acquisition of Honda Polaris of Lubbock. During the past 11 years, Baker has bought four more existing dealerships, renamed them Family PowerSports and has become the largest volume motorcycle dealer in Texas.
Family PowerSports Weatherford will initially stay at its current location, but Baker said in the releasethat “within the next 18-20 months we’ll move the location out to Interstate 20.”
