    Ya know.... I kind of blew this company off when I first started looking at bikes, cause I had read somewhere in a review that they were using cheap engines. Reading deeper, this doesn't seem to be the case. Considering they are an hour from my hometown and almost the same from my current location, I'm gonna have to drop by and take one for a spin sometime.



    Funny thing is, on my last trip to the dealership, I sat on every 250-400 they had, and nearly everything had some quality issues, cheap feel, or were uncomfortable (except for Yamaha, actually).

    These bikes from CCW look like pretty big bang for the buck.



    Really enjoyed the interview... thanks.

    I really like their Ace and Misfit. I wouldn't hesitate the moment they're going to sell them in belgium. They look like nice commuting and cruising bikes.



    I admire their idea of not wanting to be the best, but just building bikes for the average joe.

    Last week my son went to work doing tech support for a company which uses the same engines in their bikes. Won't take him very long to determine whether or not they're a value for the munny over the long term.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Best wishes for success to Cleveland Cycle Works.



    British Mac Motorcycles is trying to do the same thing using the Buell 492cc Blast motor. The demise of Buell and other problems seems to have them stalled.



    In the sport-touring category, an American upstart is Motus Motorcycles. As a recovering V-Max jockey, I have a warm spot for their 100 cubic inch V4, but I don't understand why they are not taking advantage of the longitudinal mounting and using shaft drive, like the Gold Wing, big BMWs and Moto Guzzi.



    I hope they all do well.
