US$ up, your cost down!

Mon, Aug 29th, 2016 12:00:00 am

Recent calculations for a NZ dealer show that the current cost for his March 2015 used Harley shipment would be almost 10% lower after FX rate adjustment and using two year newer examples to allow for the time lapse! Several UK clients have reported no drop in sales in spite of the negative "Brexit" currency FX effect. Have a close look at recent US$ price examples; go to Order History, and see for yourself.

SPORTSTERS ARE COOL AGAIN

Thu, Jan 10th, 2013 12:00:00 am

Harley Davidson sportster

Sportsters are a line of motorcycles produced by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company continuously since 1957. Sportster models are designated in Harley-Davidson’s product code by beginning with “XL”.

The Harley Davidson XL1200X Sportster “Forty-Eight”, is constructed in the “Dark” Nightster style, but has the classic ’48 style small peanut tank, wire wheels, forward-controls, a whole new 130mm front tire, and super small single seat.  

It has taken me a while but now I love it....

Something from WWII (not a Nintendo Games Console.....)

Wed, May 30th, 2012 12:00:00 am

bargain Harley-Davidson bought at auction

History Lesson: Harley-Davidson began producing the WLA in small numbers in 1940, as part of a general military expansion. The later entry of the United States into World War II saw significantly increased production, with over 90,000 being produced during the war (along with spare parts the equivalent of many more). Unusually, all the WLAs produced after Pearl Harbor, regardless of the actual year, would be given serial numbers indicating 1942 production. Thus, war-time machines would come to be known as 42WLAs. This may have been in recognition of the use of the continued use of the same specification.

This one went for around 12,000USD at auction, the leather saddle bags are worth 1500USD alone. PS. I was in a store the other day (in Europe) and a shop assistant had no idea what WWII meant and thought that it was a misspelling of Wii of Nintendo fame.

2 BIKES OFF TO EGYPT

Honda motorbikes bought at auction

A pair of Hondas off to Egypt.  These guys know which ones to pick.  Both of these were mint condition, low mileage (the 1800 was only a 590 mile bike on a 2002!).   Crated together to save costs on shipping they should be riding around Cairo in a month or so.
