The Beginning…

Andy Lagzdins gives us a quick history: “I started DirtFirst in 1991, I was working on my bikes and started making some custom parts for them and it was something I kind of wanted to get into so I bought some welders and started making some bumpers and grab bars and other little specialty items for cross country racing. There really wasn’t that much aftermarket out there yet for racing. I started making things for other people’s bikes and started a business. Over the years it went more from fabrication to just selling parts, doing service and race prep, we do very little fabrication now. It’s not that I don’t want to but most of my time is spent doing race prep.”

For over a decade DirtFirst did business from their massive shop located in Baltimore, Maryland. In order to reach a larger group of riders and racers, DirtFirst closed its retail sales location in 2009 and opened a race preparation facility in Los Angeles, California. This move put DirtFirst in the heart of the largest offroad community in the country, Southern California.
