"....pennies on the dollar."

Remember that the next time someone asks for an "investment".

How do you, as a small company, have nearly 400 grand in damaged transmissions? 385 damaged transmissions just sitting around. Did they even sell 385 bikes in a year?

I think in this case "damaged" means Klazy Ken's Scratch and Dent Sale. If the powder coat or finish is messed up you can't install that on a $30k bike. So, they let them pile up until someone says "How much money are we losing on all these?"

If this would happen 8 wks from now I may have had the resources to take advantage of the sale. Too bad.

Don't worry, I think you will have the opportunity when Big Bear turns the lights off.

“We have to sell it all, regardless of cost or loss.”

He take my seminar!

Of course, these bikes were an assembly of parts to begin with. Rossmeyer sold them for a few years. Utter POS bikes; impossible to ride more than 20 miles. Even if you could tough it out, something would break. I find the 385 damaged transmissions easy to believe.
