American Iron Magazine is known for providing information for individuals that are into the lifestyle from riding to building and all the events in between.
Maida, the author of 101 Harley-Davidson Twin-Cam, American V-Twin Engine: Evo & Twin Cam — Hop-up & Repair and How to Build a High-Performance American V-Twin Engine, discussed the current realities of the v-twin business.
Paul Teutul, Sr, presented the company’s first all-electric chopper.
Commissioned by Siemens and built using recycled steel, LED lighting and environmentally-friendly water-based paints, the Siemens Smart Chopper features a 27hp brushless motor good for a top speed in excess of 100mph, and enough battery life for a 60-mile range.
OC Choppers had built the electric motorcyle for Siemens over the course of the past month or so and the story of how it was built is scheduled to air American Chopper on TLC on Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 9PM ET/PT.

The 69 Chopper pays homage to Easy Rider, the 1969 American road movie where two young “hippie” bikers, Wyatt and Billy, are on their way to Mardis Gras, and encounter hitchhikers, a drunken lawyer, a jail cell, a whorehouse and the death of a friend.

Right now, this is the common thought about Buell stopping Blast production:
Buell has re-branded itself over the last month or so and have been taking a very close look at themselves. Not only did they change their logo, but they decided to put to rest a motorcycle that just didn’t fit what they really wanted to be making… Sport bikes.
Great Story, Better PR
People are talking about American sportbikes and product integrity of the company, not minuscule sales of the product. If the Blast was selling, then it would not be the end of the model. This is corporate America… You know, where Banks give bonuses after receiving bailout money… It’s about the Continue reading “In 2010, The Buell Blast Got Blasted”

Darwin Motorcycles, manufacturer of Brass Balls Choppers & Bobbers, announced today that the firm is providing a 300,000 mile / 1 year warranty on their hi-tech minimalist anti-chrome Model 1 and softail-style Model 1S custom-production Bobbers.

Biker Pros Comment
We feel that this will receive significant press in the online and print world. 300,000, 400,000 and 500,000 mile warranty numbers are a big story. Bikernet.com and Cycle Source have already picked it up. Baker and D&D add legitimacy to the warranty and will help placement.
