I own a few cruisers (HD and a Victory) but I'm not gloating. I think it sucks not only for the guys that will be stuck with bikes that won't be worth much but also for everyone involved. We've got a major shop locally that sells AIH and Big Dog. I've heard that they're on the edge financially and I'm sure this isn't helping. Alot of people could be out of work. Over the top customs aren't my thing but like they say - Different folks, different strokes.

Subaru beat them to it with the Tribeca front end, the Avanti though was a beauty

News Flash!

Ford has sold Jaguar and Land Rover to the Indian Company, TaTa.

This should be interesting...

Ya know, I was searching for a classic car I can drive with hand controls and found a 1955 Auto Union all restored for $10,000.00. Dig the suicide doors, but the wheelchair wouldn't fit. So now I'm looking for an old Hudson, but the only one I found was in Ohio, and most likely a rust-bucket. What kinda classic car would you MOrons suggest? There's lots of old restored Chebys here in so cal, I'd dig having a '48, with all the art deco stuff on the side...maybe
