I always thought it to be a mater of time before  an affordable , cool and smaller cc engine motorcycles would make a comback.

They use Honda Clone 250cc engines. I wonder where the engine factory is located?

I think they have some pretty fun designs.  I could see young riders loving that Misfit.  I'll keep my eye on that trellis-framed supermoto they have in the "Werks."

From Wikipedia:
Designed and assembled at its headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio. Manufacturing in China for most components, including frames and the Honda-derived engine used on all models.

Aware of the hostility to Chinese imports that undercut the prices of US goods, Colosimo said they could claim that their motorcycles are Made in USA, "but that'd be bullshit. Just because we bolt a few parts on doesn't make it true."

I guess the moral of the story is....
 1)  The U.S. machining and production ability has been reduced significantly last 20 years, or no longer exist.
 2) Doing business with Chinese designers and factories requires an incredible amount of follow up, quality control,net work, and still get shafted by random low end quality work .

tooseevee was correct...  hk3 wwith 50cc engine epa approved under 2 grand assembled.. a little smaller than a sportster.. enough room for a bigger engine....

Scotty that bike is looking good!

I like that little Mash bike too. Looks like a light, HD style dirt tracker.

the Mash looks neat. Looks a lot like the Sym Wolf 150.
