Adam makes some good points. I have built a couple of these bikes but couldn't of done it without
the personal help of Lee and Leroy Lange, Dwayne, Bruce, Mutt and this website. I feel it's time
maybe I also pitch in and gave back.

I run the design firm in Seattle WA and build Wordpress websites for my clients. I
would like to offer my company's design services to the group at no charge. Like Adam mentioned
these sites take quite a bit of time and effort and Dave and Brent have done a fantastic job keeping
it going for quite some time now. However I think we all agree that it might be time for an update.

I suspect with input from the exchange members old and new, and help from Adam on the technical
end, maybe we could build something as cool these old bikes.

Designheavy -

I dont know any of you but some have helped me with my
project and this site has been huge in keeping my project
moving forward. I'm grateful to that.

Updating a website/forum is not as easy a 'upgrading' the
software. That comes at a cost (monthly or annually) and
there is configuration involved not to mention that you
are not going to be able to simply port over all the
messages in this site into the next version. They can
also suck up a LOT of time.

You should start another site and build on that while
archiving this one as it contains a wealth of knowledge
and can keep the structure everyone is used to. Maybe
arrange a change of ownership when the owner feels the
time is right. I work in IT an am willing to help out
where I can.

yea, I can see it now. Video's of Hummers doing rear
wheel stands down the center lines of stopped traffic.
Hummer Club gangs cell phone videos intimidating other
Harley riders. Burn out videos featuring street
racing..... someone stretched out on a 125 going for a
land speed record. Yea right? Grainy pictures? Submitted
by members who cared enough to share. Dull stories? I
found none of them dull and fully appreciated them taking
the time to share. No video's? Well, were any submitted?
I'm sorry Fears but the website is dedicated to the
preservation and restoration of the series. If you, and
your partner, want to dedicate a new site to
modified/highly modified versions of a motorcycle
produced by the Harley-Davidson Company that focuses on
the Lightweights produced from 1948 to 1965-66 please
feel free.
Imagine how many hours from the Commodore days it took to
move this site from dues paying to free. Imagine the cost
to host it and WRITE THE CODE to make it happen before
code writer apps became available. Imagine you've never
had to see an 'ad' tellng you to purchase something.
Imagine that the dues never covered the cost. And you sit
here in judgement of the site. Yes, feel free to start
your own. I would love to tell you to go F**K yourself
but I'm a gentleman... So, I'll reiterate... feel free to
start your own website. Please quit being a troll to this
one. No, I'm not Dave.

I've been a member of this
site for years now and I've never seen it so neglected.
Are the guys running it too old to understand new
technology, revamping the site, actually updating it a
few times a month?!

It's crazy, there is so much media hype going on right
now over this little bike posted here and the one place
people are going to find out more about these things just
totally sh*** the bed.


Pretty easy if you ask me. Perhaps we could even update
the photo package so its not so 1984 grainy and heaven
forbid, actually update the graphics and add video. I'm
sure this was all very good when you made the site on
your Commodore 64 but it's now 2018.
