World’s Simplest Starter Tech

New! NASH “PUSH” Button Starter Plunger Assembly

By Bandit with photos by Wrench

Okay, so here’s the confession. When I build bobbers or choppers, I try to keep everything simple and super reliable. For instance, electric start circuits, which involve starter relays, buttons, handlebar switches, you name it. Maybe Billy from Spyke came up with this system that eliminates almost everything.

They are the shit for reliable, no mess starting every time. There’s but one issue with these puppies, position. They are usually located on the front of the starter solenoid under the oil tank, which can be an issue for stock bikes.

Modern-Day Incarnation of Lincoln Cosmo Carrera Panamericana

By General Posts

Delightful tribute Rally Car showcases masterful rally mods

This Cosmopolitan is a modern-day recreation, made to race in the late 1990s and now boasting a significant number of accolades.

Editor’s Note:

Plus this stinkin’ Lincoln is directly connected to Bikernet.com and 5-Ball Racing.

This car brings back memories. I was a crew member/co-captain with its new owner Dr. Christian Reichardt or Doctor Hamster to you in 2005. It was originally raced in the ‘70s and the body was modified in the ‘90s. We worked on the classic mechanically and prepared the car for the 2005 La Carrera Pan Americana road race in the vintage class. We brought a 2nd Place trophy home.

Harley-Davidson Regains Number One Position In India’s High-End Motorcycle Segment

By General Posts

Earlier Harley-Davidson, exited the Indian market and again entered in 2020.

According to the data shared by SIAM, Harley sold 601 motorcycles in FY-2022, as compared to only 206 Harley-Davidson motorcycles sold during FY-2021. It’s a 37 per cent growth in sales as compared to last year.

Hero MotoCorp took over Harley’s distribution in India in October 2020 including motorcycles, accessories, merchandise and more. The company is currently operating about 13 dealerships and 10 authorised service centres across the country.

Harley-Davidson has witnessed a resurgence in its sales in India as the brand managed to regain the number one spot in the high-end motorcycle segment in the country. The company, which announced its exit and subsequent re-entry into the Indian market in 2020, has been on a road to a revival with partner Hero MotoCorp.

According to the data shared by SIAM, Harley sold 601 motorcycles in FY-2022, of which 531 units were sold in the 1,000 cc and above two-wheeler segment. The company witnessed a 37 per cent growth year-on-year. In comparison, only 206 Harley-Davidson motorcycles were sold during FY-2021.

When compared to other premium motorcycle brands, Harley was substantially ahead with Triumph Motorcycles India selling 336 units, Kawasaki selling 283 units, Suzuki selling 233 and Honda selling 71 units in the 1,000 cc and above motorcycle segment.

The majority of the iconic American brand’s sales have been driven by its new launches, the Pan America 1250 adventure tourer and the Sportster S cruiser and mark a revolution, both in terms of a platform and segment for the manufacturer.

It’s also noteworthy that a bulk of Harley’s previous sales in India were driven by entry-level offerings like the Street 750, Iron 883 and the Forty-Eight, which were locally assembled. While the latter models are still on sale, they are now wholly imported much like the rest of the range comprising the Pan America 1250, Sportster S, Fab Bob, Fat Boy, Heritage Classic, Road King, Road Glide and Street Glide.

The company is now gearing up to introduce the Harley-Davidson Nightster S later this year.
