I just sent this to all the VTX and Harley people I know, man the Harley boys sure are sensitive about it! :lol:RicksterVTX1300C said:VTX Made In America
The VTX is manufactured, assembled, and painted in Ohio, using mostly American made parts and 100% American Labor!
Thats plenty Made In America for me!
Harley...well look for yourself at the label on their parts:
Need I say more? Haha!
So carbs, electronics, shocks and forks so-far are made in Japan for Harley. Veeery interseting.Chicago-Spike said:Many, many, many threads on this question. Yes the X is made& assembled in Ohio. Engine and internal parts, wheels are cast in Ohio. Electronics are not nor are the HD electronics. HD uses Showa forks&shocks, a copmpany owned by Honda. HD has a few other parts made by a Honda company. 8)
I don't care who you are, that's funny.The only thing truely American about Harley Davidson is using marketing lies and non-sense to sell a product and the fat, lazy, smelly slobs who ride them.
Not true, HD is not an American comp anymore. When it went public and offered it's company to stockholders it became an International company with prfits going around the world to it's shareholders. 8)SicTexVTX said:And Harley is a American company and Honda is a Japanese company.
Honda isn't leaving Ohio, they have thousands of acres of land there and they are constantly adding huge multi-million square foot plants to make more and more cars and bikes. 8)Bouxdaddy said:Besides, in 2 or 3 years, Harleys AND Hondas will probably be MADE IN CHINA. Isn't everything else?
