    Default Another LIBERTY MCY SPECIALTIES Announcement

    Folks,

    It is time for another annoying policy announcement from Liberty.

    Sorry (BELIEVE me I'm sorry), but Liberty can now only honor float and manifold requests from the public at large.
    Overwhelming demand requires that all carburetor services be submitted through an established account.

    You know if you are. The rest of you must find someone who is....
    (Blame it on me, and the recent rash of stiffs.)

    Many thanks to the AMCA, an asset to the vintage motorcycle industry.

    ....Cotten

    Golly Duffey,

    If they have an Indian Four, they should know it is going to get expensive.

    Since I can't get paid because they claim the carb is faulty (Quite possible, since it was distorted like it had been on fire: Imagine a wax candle in the sun...), but since they won't send it back, I'm probably going to offer something for the "core", just for a "bad example" on display.

    Otherwise I am out of many weeks of focused attention and skilled detail.
    Time for me to find an exit strategy:
    (Sick of "fattening frogs for snakes", like Tedd who stole my pics from this forum for his catalog, and several other scavengers across the 'Net.)

    I have talked and bought from you before Tom and it makes me mad that anyone would stiff you and your company. Especially if any AMCA members.
    I get that as well in my trade. People want this and that and then they don't have the money to cover it. My mom used to always say "Champagne taste on a beer budget".

    Thanks Len, but face it...

    Skilled 'one-off' service is doomed in a world of mass-production one-size-fitz-none mentality.

    Exit strategy is now my priority. I did what I could for vintage motorcycling and History; Sorry I couldn't do more.

    Don't forget, Bill,...

    You are an 'established account.'

    PS: The real tragedy is that there is no one in the next generation to pick up the ball and run with it.

    Tom, I'm darn glad you rebuilt, conserved my two DLX38's. Your work is of the highest quality and your prices are very reasonable.
