Do you remember the Iron Horse magazine article (April '97) on Harley dealers B&D in New Jersey, by David Snow? When H-D started forcing their dealerships to turn themselves into boutiques, long-established shops like B&D often couldn't afford the transformation. They were left out in the cold by the MotorCo.
This great B&D ad from 1948 was sent to me by Jeff Baer. ("They were the accessory kings", he says).
If anyone's interested, I'll risk copyright infringement again and post the excellent Snow article here.
