The sad tale of B&D Motorcycles, NJ





I scanned these from the April '97 issue of Iron Horse for someone a couple of years ago, and promised to post them here.

I have a passion for old Harley-Davidsons and the long and distinguished history behind the marque. But some of the MoCo's behaviour towards their longest-serving and most loyal dealers during the enforced transition from motorcycle shop to boutique wasn't distinguished in the slightest...

Anyway, make your own mind up.

Harley Davidson died in 1985 in my opinion. Just a motorcycle Wal-Mart now...
