I want to say thank you to all of our retail, dealer, and distributor customers. We wouldn't have made it without you. The time has come to pass the business on to the next generation of hard working young men. (I was never one of those).
As you may know, my exhaust business was bought out by Jesse Bassett of The Gas Box. Jesse is doing a great job with it and constantly improving the line. Jesse also has his own line of parts. Check out his web site. His contact info is:

My 45" chain guards, 45" battery boxes and Servicar battery boxes are now sold by Chris Vaccaro. Chris has Bruce's wiring harnesses, cables, and his own line of parts including tools. Check his web site also. His contact info is:
Vintage MC Supply
The remainder of the business is now run by Billy Balcer of Strange Bird Manufacturing. He has the gas and oil lines, brake, clutch, and shift rods, springer horn mount kits, ride controls, motor mounts, kick stands, mirrors, JD/VL gas caps, instrument panel and speedo parts, foot boards, foot board extensions, mats, and lots of other stuff.

These are great guys and I know that they will take care of you.
Again, thank you. Everyone has good days and bad days, but I have to tell you that I always liked coming to work. It is my gig.
A special thank you to Dennis Francis, who has always looked out for me. Bruce Lindsday and Inga Schmidt who helped me every step ofthe way and never lost patience with me. I could never have done this without you three. Lori Butler, a trusted employee who cared about the joint as much as I did. Lori always cared about the parts she made for you and yelled at everyone else to keep them in line. And especially my beautiful wife, Mary. When she was down-sized out of her long term employment, she came into the shop and learned it all. Mary and Lori are very mechanical and very conscientious. They each contributed a lot.
