those tornados are cheaper than I thought but I dont think it compares to the MV. Looks like you could get a Veltro through them. I wonder how much?

hmmmm...very interesting.

this outfit is called Arthaworks.

there's another operation in hollywood, ca called GP Star, Inc. that deals in exotic bikes. so, i checked their web site, and it reads just like that ebay listing. i wonder if gp star is now arthaworks?

here's the gp star web site:

ebay listing shows a stock MV photo and they say "The photographs you've just seen are the property of Arthaworks, Inc. and may not be used without permission."

a few friends at work were pulling a co workers leg about chinese made ducatis.

but someone said that there are some older chinese imitations of harleys or bmw that were so well done that they are collectable now....

Harley actually launched the motorcycle industry in Japan by being paid as consultants (on how to build a factory, interchangable parts etc etc), and trying to sell their product there.
