Good article. A quick story of HD. Thanks.
Can you believe that scooter they sold for a while? Looked like an old breadbox on wheels.
Wish I owned one of those "bread boxes". Bet they getting into the "priceless" category. Closest I can come it to say I look like I never passed a breadbox (or a cold beer).
My local dealer has one in the shop. Looks like (EDIT), but I am sure it is worth more than I could pay for it.
Both of his dealerships have soemwhat of a Museum of motorcycles. He probably has $1m in classic bikes easily.
**Great article by the way.
Please read and understand the info in this link...

very cool man
Thats great, thanks Redfish
I remember the AMF days wow that brings back memories.
I had friends that had AMF Harleys. Kinda turned me off of Harleys for years.
I had a beat up Cushman Eagle when the Topper came out in 1960. I remember "lusting" after everything that had 2 wheels and a motor, EXCEPT the HD Topper! I seem to remember they had heel-toe pedals in the floorboard for up-down shifting, that was sorta cool (I think).
I worked at a BMW & Yamaha shop when AMF bought HD, we were concerned that AMF would improve things and impact our business, hahaaa
It didn't take me long to believe they were improving when the Evo came out, I got a '87 XLH.
