Believe me, i WISH the china girl engines were made here...
(Id love to have a little chat with there tool and die/casting guys)
But neither is the Morini...
and the generic China girl out sells the Morini 50 to 1.
As a builder I buy what works best and my customers are willing to pay for price point wise.
I don't get the attitude either.
"Dont you have any American bikes in here?"
yeah sure we do... they cost more... Cannondale
(we call em Crackendales)
Then I show them a spec sheet on a comparable Chinese or Taiwan bike and it shuts em right up.
I wonder just how strong that Pro American conviction really is.
I love my country, Its the Politicians im ashamed of.
