    Apparently they are selling the 250cc bikes to still be around but this should bring in more customers.
    These bikes are built-in Amish country as been written. They have to be traveling a little ways to get to work in downtown Goshen IN.
    A lot of travel via horse and buggy.

    I still think my next bike will be the Halcyon 250. I thought it needed a bigger motor but it doesn't look right. maybe I have just been looking at the 250 for too long (I hear it causes blindness :D). If I get anything much bigger the wife is going to make me build another garage.

    I really like these bike's. It's obvious they have a eye on history with a "minimum" of today's technology.
    Old school influence.
    They are pricey but you do pay more for American products in some cases.
    @rusty nuts .....add on to that garage...:D

    Yeah, a little bit pricey, but it would be an interesting around town ride. Certainly would be an attention getter ! ! !

    Beautiful part of Indiana. I had a route covering much of the area. That was in the late 90's. Amish country for sure.

    I want a full r3port on how you switched a woman’s thinking to demanding you build a second garage,......you could make millions on the black market, ( is that word still allowed? ) selling to desparate husbands!

    @Alpal before we were married last year I had just picked up my Ural. After it was in the garage it hit her " how am I going to fit my car in here too?"
    My reply "it's not."
    Her response "Well you better make it fit. You may have to build another garage just for your bikes."
    She didn't restrict me to size so maybe next year we will add on to the side of the garage. Complete with inground oil changing pit... I mean tornado shelter.

    Very similar to a 1943 HD and all the styling of the bikes back than.
