Winter workshopEditor’s Note: J&P Cycles Iowa Showroom Sales Tech Merrill Bonney started with J&P back in May of 1999 as a phone sales representative.

J&P Customizes Four Bikes – Part II – Working on the Sportster 72


February 26, 2013 | By: Brett Koranda

Sportster completeEditor’s Note: Last month we introduced you to our most recent project of updating four bikes: a 2012 Sportster® XL1200V (72), a 2013 Softail® FLS (Slim), a 2012 FLHTCUTG Tri-Glide® and a 2012 Goldwing GL1800P, here. We have been busy in the last month! Here is a low down on the work done.

Subtle Changes in the 2012 Harley-Davidson Model Lineup


August 11, 2011 | By: Bud Milza

It’s a new model year for Harley-Davidson, and when it comes to motors, all I have to say is “Goodbye 96 and hello 103.” That’s because all Twin Cam models, with the exception of the Dyna Super Glide and Street Bob, now come standard with the 103 motor.

This news, and the fact that the Rocker has been discontinued, are pretty much all there is for me to get excited about this year.
