Plus!: You are now co-owner of Hutchins / Revcore,but previous to purchasing the company did you work there?If so,what were you doing?
Jay: Yes,I co-own Hutchins/Revcore with my partner Mike Ferriell. Before the purchase I worked on designs,sales and advertising for Hutchins.
Plus!: How did the opportunity arise for you to purchase this bike company?
Jay: It's sort of a tangled story,but here goes. A man in town,Bill Bellis purchased Hutchins/Revcore from Richard Hutchins and Roger Worsham. He then relocated both companies to Louisville,Kentucky. He had other businesses and not much time to run Hutchins/Revcore so he was looking for someone to help him out. I applied and got the job. I was in charge of management,sales,promotion and design. Mr.Bellis then sold the company to two other people. It turned out that they couldn't handle it so he took it back. He then offered it to Mike and myself in Februari of '91,right before the ABA Winter Nationals last year.
