Confirmed a new Harley electric motorcycle
Well, it’s been a little over two years since Harley announced and debuted it’s Project Livewire electric motorcycle. At that time, and just up to a few weeks ago, Harley-Davison had stated that it was a concept motorcycle. Now, Harley-Davison has just announced that they will definitively be producing an electric motorcycle. What is still up in the air though, is exactly when the general public will see this electric Harley added to their production bikes.
I’m sure most riders and the general public for that matter, think that an electric motorcycle is a new concept but actually the first electric motorcycle was patented in the United States in 1897! Bill Davidson the great grandson of William Davidson, the founder of Harley-Davidson stated recently, that just like their gas powered motorcycles have a very unique sound, they’re working to make their electric motorcycle to have a unique sound that will be totally different than their competitors. Naturally, it’s not going to sound like our current gas powered Harleys, but more like a jet turbine engine! Read more
American Ironhorse Tejas Model
When new, this moidel sold for approximately $28,995. Don’t get too excited, American Ironhorse went out of business in 2008. Because most of their bikes look like one off custom machines, they still remain in high demand in the resale market. I believe a huge factor in their continued high demand, besides their ultra-cool look, was the fact that they chose the American-made S&S engine to power all their motorcycles. Many other motorcycle manufacturers and custom builders went with imported V-twin engines, that most bikers consider way inferior when compared to the S&S engine.
This bike like most of the American Ironhorse line, came standard with the 111-inch S&S engine. AIH offered two other options: a 117-inch ($1,000) or a 124-inch ($2,000) motor. American Ironhorse opened for business in 1995. American Ironhorse was the largest factory producer of custom motorcycles in the United States until production ended in 2008. Read more

Motorcycle gas tank leak repair tip
Most motorcycles have steel gas tanks and over time the corrosive nests of the gas and oxidation on the inside of the tank can result in slow gas leaks.
When this occurs, most motorcycle riders opt to fix the tank rather than replace. It would seem that the most popular fix is with an internal gas tank liquid type epoxy liner.
If you’re thinking of doing this to your bike, watch this video because it can save you having to repaint your gas tank! Read more
