    the pursuit of the material changes some people. thank goodness most of us aren't that way. there's an old saying, "gold makes people go mad." (so does staring at the sun.) being a medical person myself, i can only imagine this anesthesiologist who hired bikes to be restored probably has gold chains hanging from his neck, people like him investing in the stock market is beneath him. he's probably got futures traders working deals for him, hooked up with multiple investors in multiple businesses and properties, off shore investments, the list goes on. i've known several greedy doctors like this, they are real and they exist. in fact i know one right now who is invested in several businesses including a gun store with a shooting range and a massive high-output reloading operation. and he owns two harley's and the leathers to go with it.

    the guy that's being sued in this story better hope ianucci will charge reduced rates or take him on a pro bono. or else both these guys admit their faults, settle without harming each other any more than already, shake hands and go home like gentleman.

    I believe this has to do with an issue between a shop and a customer and nothing to do with the AMCA. If you are a member of the AMCA you are able to vend at a AMCA meet, ride on an AMCA road run, be a member of a local chapter, and are able to receive the AMCA magazine. When did they receive the right to rule on civil matters between a business and it's customers. Am I missing something here? I don't believe so.

    Your right that this should have stayed an issue between the two, but unfortunately it became an AMCA issue when they went after this guy in his position in the chapter. Don’t know the people or the history with these two but hopefully it will be resolved on the merits of past club support, and honesty.......but I doubt it.

    You're right, this should NOT be an issue for members of the AMCA in any way. As for one guys position in an AMCA chapter; that would be an issue for the members of that chapter. Like RichO said; are we missing something?

    I received an email from Dan this morning advising that he has been removed as a member of the AMCA and to notify our chapter membership, which I have done.

    That is all I can share at this time other than I think it is a sad day.

    Dan Henke burned me many years ago and has done so to many others since, I have stayed away from dealing with him since to protect my business and finances. We as AMCA members and restoration artists have a responsibility to live and deal honestly with our fellow members. Karma caught up to him and now his bad deeds have been exposed.

    My dealings with Dan weren't perfect, Folks....

    But let's not make this a me too movement for the restoration industry.

    I remember when Bollenbach gossip did more damage than he did.

    I spoke with Dan Henke maybe six times on the phone . On the next to last call the conversation was regarding a fuel tank I purchased from him, that he described as needing a little bit of work but very sound.
    when the tank arrived at Charlie Smiths , he opened the box and in side was a tank that had two large holes one the size of your fist and the other a two finger wide hole . The baffle was not attached in the tank
    and when we looked inside there were two dead mice. We called Dan to tell him this is not what we intended on getting and want to return . His answer was " this is like a swap meet once you buy there are no returns"
    The tank was thin junk , we shipped it back and he proceeded to have it fixed eventually he asked for a ridiculous amount for fixing the tank which I will never use .
    I would NEVER buy from him again !
