The initial business idea was born sometime before 2007. Radek was a young mechanical engineering student and had his first after-semester holiday. To pass the time, he decided to produce something useful for his old motorbike by using a borrowed mill.
It took him weeks to refine his first rear set so that it fit right and felt comfortable. But the design was nowhere near as eye-catching as he’d hoped. Surprisingly, he shipped the second rear set he produced to the US, after a man from a motorbike forum expressed interest in buying it.
While Radek was machining his third rear set, the idea of running a motorcycle parts business popped into his mind. Wouldn’t it be amazing to turn something he was so passionate about into a full-time job? Radek knew it wouldn’t be easy. But now he had a dream, so he decided to make it a reality.
In 2007, he founded ARP Racing Parts. Of course, Radek hired himself as the CEO.
