    Yes, we'd love to develop our own American-made motor over the next few years and are in early discussions with local casting facilities. For now, however, there really isn't anything available apart from Briggs and Stratton. Casting, whether of the hubs, forks or engine is definitely something we will exploring once the company gathers sufficient momentum and capitol. Great things start off small.

    One of many great reasons for building things here in the States is not just quality, but the fact that even as a small company we are creating jobs in one of the hardest hit areas of the country; northern Indiana.

    not to be a dick, but how is that? if you need caps lock to see, can you read this? you can only read your posts, but not others? you can change text size with ctrl+ or ctrl - or whatever the hotkey for it is.


    either way, the janus and the first bike are ugly, and useless.. tough to design a retro frame and put a modern motor in it. and not make it look cheesy. maybe the people who buy those whizzer copies would be fooled.... either way, fad bikes are a tough sell, most consumers realize that potential resale market is nil. i don't think retro boardtracker is the next hot fad. unfortunately i'm betting viragos and those other ugly 80's bikes make a huge comeback.



    some of the other bikes mentioned here were much more thought through.

    No, I was visualizing something more like a motorized mountain bike. That's cool though.

    The guys where I work have some serious lust for the Halcyon 50 as a stylin' around-town scoot.

    You shouldn't be able to toss a football through a motorcycle.

    They should use that radiator to take up the empty space.
    Get it away from the front fender.
