Frank Silva, Owner & Founder


Frank Silva Headshot

The fact that Frank Silva started P1 Powersports would not shock anyone that knows him. After all, Frank has competed, sponsored, and generally been around various race sports for decades.

In 2000, Frank made World Finals Champion. In 2017, Frank was Superstock National Champion. While he appreciates all powersports, he is a personal watercraft enthusiast through and through.

Whether you’re looking for your next reliable ride, or a weekend toy that brings joy to your life, there’s no one that understands your passion and what you are looking for quite like Frank Silva.

Frank is in the office most days – unless he’s sponsoring a race somewhere – so make sure to ask for him. He always loves to meet fellow powersports enthusiasts and “talk shop.”

Donald Schmelyun

Head Tech

Donald bring over 35-years in the motorcycle industry and is an expert in all facets of powersports repair. But his love of all things powersports goes beyond mechanics. He has competed on the professional level in Motocross and Road Racing. There’s a reason people come from all over Florida (and sometimes beyond) to bring their motorcycle, personal watercraft, atv and the like to Donald. Quite simply, Donald can fix anything – and if he can’t, nobody can.

Cesar Restrepo


Do you have a thing for vintage motorcycles? Guess what? So does Cesar! He has a heart for the older bikes and the skills to back up his passion. Cesar is a certified Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki mechanic. He is a 2-stroke master and no one will treat your older bike with more loving care than Cesar. As if all of that wasn’t enough, Cesar is both the 1994 and 1995 Colombia Modified GPRS Champion.

Jake Hester

Parts Manager

Is there an elusive part you are looking for? Don’t worry, Jake will find it. We’ve tried to stump him, but we think he can literally find just about any part for any bike. Young Jake is more than our parts manager. We’re proud to say that he is a lifelong avid Motorcross rider – and an incredibly talented one at that.

Chris Carreras

Parts Services

In this day and age everyone needs a “computer guy.” Thank goodness for Chris, because he keeps all of our computerized systems running at P1. However, there’s more to Chris, than just an understanding and love for all things techie. Chris loves Harley Davidson bikes and knows everything about them. If you have a question about your Harley, come in and talk with Chris. He knows everything.
