    The more info the better for me guys. I am willing to pay for the domain name and web space IF i can find a good cheap web guy or someone to donate their web experience to me so we can get the site going. I would like them to collorabrate with me on my idea of how the site will look. Nothing fancy, just some basics Indian logos, red in white in color and an online form that one can fill out and view the current info online. Currently I have 45 dealer names.

    Mike,

    Just a thought here I haven't seen Vern Goodwin since 1997 at the USCA national sidecar rally in St Joe Mo.

    He would be someone to talk and discuss about Indian dealers he maybe even have a list of names and also their address from days gone by.

    May be worth a shot

    Mike my point was this information should be here not on another site. This is the official site of the AMCA is it not? Isn't this the place you would expect to find this type of information. I'm not tring to beat anyone up here just trying to set things straight. Bob L

    Bob,

    Well it was my idea and I was doing it for free out of my own pocket, I am going to pay for a free domain name and my donate my time and web space on my server to make a simple one page site. I wasnt looking for anything in return but more or less something for people to go to and say, i remember that place! So honestly I am not looking for a place to set it up at and than let them run it and maintain it. I was going too do it for me and something to keep me busy when i check my emails at night and look at a few things. So it is the official site of the AMCA, yes it is but I am not asking the AMCA for any help and I can pay for it myself.
    Not being rude Bob but i am not looking for their approval or anything here.
