Summary:

My dream shattered!!!

Faults:

Rusted out wheels after 8 weeks of use.

Front fender welds rusted out.

Failed to start first time.

Main dealer wouldn't uphold warranty.

Head office UK failed to help.

10 month old bike!!! 2666 miles...

Junk.

General Comments:

Good 40s look.

But it's just for display purpose only.

Harley Spingers made in 2007 are just for indoor show.

God forbid you use it, the warranty will be void.

Can't get custom parts to fit.

Looks the part next to a B17 bomber.

Not for use should be on the license plate.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No

I do not know where you ride, but I have rode across Germany and have had no problems.

In the future try staying out of the ocean with it. I can't imagine what else would cause all that.

I have owned a Springer Classic for three years. No problems with the bike at all. Great build quality and love riding it!
