78 THOUSAND dollars, and they expect to "only produce 100 per year." LMAO! I'd be amazed if they had TEN orders a year, much less 100.

I don't see anything that justifies $15K, much less $78K. It's a flop before it starts.

A fool and his money.

In the same category as Big Dog and Big Bear, when the market tanks again there will be no market at _all_ for these bikes. Here's a challenge for the those that love motorcycles and have the 'ol entrepreneurial spirit, manufacture a motorcycle for less than 10,000.00 that is fun, reliable, a good all arounder.

I bet the engine in the Arch bikes is Korean made. Big Dog was in my home town, that's what they used. Fuck, Big Dogs were ugly. I'd almost ride one of these. Almost.

S&S engine with a Baker Tranny....

Still not a fan but they're using quality hardware if an HD clone drivetrain is your thing.

Nothing wrong with 19th century bicycle tech, lol. Not quite my style but I think the only HD i looked at and thought had some original styling was that CAD framed bike that senior Tuttle did on the last go round with him, Junior, and JJ.

"Wow, that's a piece." I would completely agree.

I agree! They sure did seem proud of it. Pretty cool that they could make something like that from scratch with a CNC machine, but it sure as hell looked silly as a motorcycle tank.

On another note i did get to see their bike they did for the 9/11 memorial. That was something special.

And the memorial itself is very emotional. You understand the magnitude of what happend that day being there.

Take this however you want, but he must enjoy a sore ass.
