Very good reporting. Would have liked to have hear more about what the chopper people were going to do. I see that Big Bear Choppers is expanding to a womens low-rider model. I suppose they'll use S&S certified motors. Well, looks like the great 48 states
will let you slide through a kit-build for maybe another year. And then, as the EPA gains federal clout, they'll force the states to comply. I'm sticking with my knuckle and pans.
They can have all the modern stuff.... but all 50 states will allow the antique's to attrition-on-down; meaning you can ride them until the serial numbers fall off the crankcase. Makes the antiques a little more valuable, especailly to their owners.
Thanks for fine reporting.
