The 2011 Year End Motorcycle Chain Links – Happy New Year Bikers

It’s the last day of the Old Year, and by Jehovah, we have some massive things planned for the one to come.It will be yet another grotesquely bilious Happy Hour tonight and no dram of the cheapest whiskey will be safe from harm’s way.

How many bikes and bike kits were ordered directly or through a BBC dealer, were paid and never delivered to customers in the US and abroad, is the question to which the District Attorney’s Office wants an answer before deciding or not to file criminal charges against Kevin & Mona Alsop and maybe some close collaborators if also involved in a fraud scheme to take payments without intending to build the promised motorcycles and kits…
