As long as they were misspelling it, why didn't they use the word "Motocycle", as was done by the (original) Indian Motocycle Company, in Hendee MA?



I know, Harley folks would have had conniption fits.. At least this way, the misspelling doesn't favor any manufacturer.

I believe they used misspelling and incorrect punctuation so that Internet forum users would feel at home.

It probably only makes them more valuable. Collector logic?

I'm fairly certain that these are the stamps SHIFT used, when they mailed those 'Motorcyce.Com' leathers to me for the HRC/ CBR 600RR/Daytona Winner test.
