Re: "And BMW's roundel?? Know what that is?"



It's a spinning airplane prop. The white is the prop, the blue is the sky.



Please recall, their first product was airplane engines.

Default Re: Harley Davidson to Enter Meat-Snack Business.

someone else that I knew had the necessary jets for the 15 year old zephyr. It just took a lot of luck for the guy to find them...



i've seen the grass on both sides...i think i'm jaded because of the experiences i had with my first old Honda. great bike but parts were too much and too hard to find. If I ever get around to selling my truck my stable addition will be one of them 600cc dispos-a-bikes.

I smoked a pack or two of 'em - rebranded Magnas (which were rebranded Camels).

You're thinking Mitsubishi, Chrysler's (former) favourite car engine manufacturer.

You're correct, of course. Kawasaki did make the Ki-100 fighter during WWII, among others, and is still very active in the aviation/aerospace business.
