Demon’s Cycle Inc., a custom motorcycle builder and custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle parts supplier, is pleased to announce the launch of a new range of chrome hand controls for 1996 onward single disc Harley-Davidson handlebars. These stylish high quality chrome kits contain everything needed to customize and upgrade a Harley including ergonomic clutch and brake levers, master cylinder, switch housings and the relevant brackets.

One key way to customize a bike is to change its handle bars, and Demon’s offer a superb range of custom handlebars including dozens of different variations like drag, t-bars, ape hangers and fat bars. All of these parts are available in chrome. But once the handlebars have been upgraded the next step for the perfect customization is to upgrade the hand controls.

Demon’s hand controls, which are engineered and assembled in U.S.A., fit all single disc 1996 and Up Harley-Davidson models and they will work with any 1984-1995 single disc model with simple rewiring. It is also possible to update most models from 1972-1984 to the latest style by changing the control cables.

“Customizing a bike is a very personal thing,” said Tom Steinbacher, owner of Demon’s Cycle. “Each of our customers wants something special, something unique for their bike. These chrome hand controls offer class, quality and an unbeatable price. The perfect combination for any customization project.”

For those who want to change the standard switches to chrome switches, Demon’s Cycle also offers a custom kit with chrome switches and accompanying wire harness. These high quality kits come with pre-soldered wires which are color-coded for easy installation.

06 Feb 12 Small business notes: Harley to offer leasing program – The News


<!–Saxotech Paragraph Count: 19
–>

Chrome Capital, a new, Naples-based finance firm, has struck a deal with Scott Fischer Enterprises to offer Chrome’s TestRide-brand leasing program at Fischer’s Naples and Fort Myers Harley-Davidson dealerships.

This allows qualified customers to lease a new or a used Harley motorcycle from the Fischer dealerships for two or three years. At the end of the term, the customer may purchase the bike, renew the lease or return the bike to the dealer.

I was surprised to learn Harley-Davidson dealerships didn’t already have a leasing program. This really is something new, according to Peter Wasmer, Chrome Capital president.

“We’re focusing exclusively on providing leases for Harley-Davidson dealerships,” Wasmer said.

Since his company (chromecapital.com) formed last year, it has signed up dealers from Florida to New Jersey. The company aims to serve the top 200 Harley dealers by year-end.

Making leasing an option, Wasmer said, is a win for all.

For the dealer, it means additional sales. That’s because leasing will make customers of people under-served by traditional finance products, Wasmer said.

It is not unusual for a rider to want to trade-up to a better-equipped bike after two or three years: However, with a conventional loan, the outstanding balance often is too high. Also, leasing makes for easier-to-handle monthly payments — a definite plus for recession-weary Southwest Floridians.

Wasmer also expects the leasing program will coax more graduates of Harley’s Rider’s Edge classes for novice motorcyclists into lease and sales.

After the training, the idea of spending $15,000 to $20,000 for a basic Harley “is very daunting” to some of those new riders, Wasmer said. The TestRide leasing program will give them time to assess whether the lifestyle and the bike are right for them.

Business contests

At least two major national merchants Wal-Mart and Staples are targeting small businesses through contests this season:

Wal-Mart’s “Get on the Shelf” contest has similarities to “American Idol,” but instead of a recording deal, offers a chance for any business or entrepreneur to get their product sold on Walmart.com and in stores.

Contestants must create videos describing their inventions. The public will determine the winners through online voting.

Wal-Mart is accepting submissions until Feb. 22. Online voting will occur in March and early April. Winners will be announced at the end of April.

Learn more at GetOnTheShelf.com

Meanwhile, free advertising is the carrot for Staples’ “Give Your Small Business the Push It Needs” contest.

To be in the running, businesses must submit to Staples’ Facebook site a 15-second video about their company.

Five winners will be chosen to receive 15 seconds of advertising in a 30-second Staples TV ad to run in their local market. Each prize is valued at $50,000, or $40,000 in advertising, plus $10,000 in cash.

20 Jan 12 Chrome Capital’s Testride Gets Mid-Atlantic Motorcycle Riders Out of Showrooms …


New 2- and 3-year leasing program now available at Rommel Harley-Davidson
dealerships in New Castle and Smyrna, DE, and Annapolis, MD

NEW CASTLE, DE – January 19, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Chrome Capital, a Naples, FL-based finance company, has signed dealership agreements with Rommel Harley-Davidson, formerly Mike’s Famous Harley-Davidson and Harley-Davidson of Annapolis, to support their New Castle, Smyrna, and Annapolis Harley-Davidson dealerships with Chrome’s TestRide™, an innovative leasing program designed to put more riders on more Harley-Davidson® motorcycles.

Chrome’s TestRide™ means customers can ride a Harley® motorcycle for two or three years with no further obligation. When the TestRide™ period comes to an end, the customer has options, not obligations. Chrome’s lease affords the customer all end-of-lease options available through a standard vehicle lease: purchase the bike, renew the lease, or return the bike to the dealer.

“TestRide™ is a revolutionary step forward to help Harley dealers generate additional revenue each month. Chrome’s lease pricing is spot on, and provides an exciting opportunity for our customers to realize their dream of riding a Harley® motorcycle today,” says Brad Hopkins, Rommel Harley-Davidson’s President.

“Having an alternative to traditional financing is a real competitive advantage for our dealerships,” says Aaron Joyner, General Sales Manager of Rommel Harley-Davidson. “The TestRide™ lease product addresses many of our customers’ preference of trading/upgrading every three years, while alleviating any loan obligations at year three found with the traditional finance products.” Mr. Joyner continues, “In my book, the big winners are the newest riders. All new H-D Rider’s Edge® graduates are presented the TestRideTM lease. It’s the perfect way to ride a Harley® motorcycle without a long-term commitment on their first bike.” Rider’s Edge® is Harley-Davidson’s training class for novice riders.

Chrome Capital’s dealer relationships currently stretch from New Jersey to Florida, and the company aims to sign on the top 200 U.S. Harley-Davidson dealerships by the end of 2012. Chrome Capital is led by a seasoned management team including Peter E. Wasmer, CEO; Stephen J Swain, CFO; and Brian Cramer, Vice President of Dealer Development and Marketing.

04 Nov 11 Google+ Adds More YouTube and Chrome Features


Gotta admit, as a Milwaukee kid there is something about the throaty roar of a Harley Davidson that warms the cockles. But the all-electric Light Cycle modeled after the machines in Tron makes a head-snapping case for whisper-quiet technology. It is the creation of Parker Brothers Choppers out of Florida and Evolve Motorcycles, …

09 Oct 11 Harley-Davidson fans out in force at Bike Show


Then living in Long Island, N.Y., he took his used Harley-Davidson sportster for a seaside ride that began in Queens. Four hours later, he felt like he was still moving.

Shelley is a committee member and also heads up security for the South Carolina State H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group) Rally.

Shelley was at the Bike Show in Barnet Park on Saturday.

Harley-Davidsons leaned on their kickstands, chrome glinting in the midday sun and featuring eye-catching custom features.

Three judges circled about 20 motorcycles, including sportsters, softails and trikes. Shelley said judges were looking for Harley-Davidson custom parts, paint and other custom features.

People go to great lengths and spend “huge” sums of money to customize their motorcycles, he said.

The only time you see bikes that look alike, he said, is in the showroom.

Shelley cannot think of a single bike not “tweaked in some respect.”

Some owners make minor changes, while others pour their life savings into their ride, he said.

Shelley won awards last year with his motorcycle, a tribute to 9-11, painted in red, white and blue. He said he sold the motorcycle to a Gaffney man who was serving in Iraq.

Dr. Thom Allred, his wife, Jeni, and their 2-year-old son, Jack, are all lifetime members of the Harley Owners Group.

Allred’s motorcycle, called the “nightmare,” was one of the contenders in Saturdays’ bike show.

It has customized chrome skulls in the front and back. The headlights are 50-watt halogens. The turn signals are functional with amber eyes in the front and red eyes in the back.

The handlebars are chrome femurs and the kickstand is a chrome skeleton foot.

Judging from the bike, one probably wouldn’t guess that Allred is a Spartanburg physician who treats infants.

The “nightmare” has been a work in progress since 2006.

“It is the only bike that looks like this in the state, if not the country,” Thom said.

Jeni wants a custom leather insert for the seat that looks like a pelvis and there are plans to replace the levers with skeletal fingers.

Allred asserts the handlebars are anatomically correct. The skulls that serve as blinkers are also anatomically correct but of a non-human primate.

The “nightmare” won second place in the softail division.

People voted Stan Shannon’s motorcycle best in show.

Shannon, of Columbia, also won first place in the trike division. Shannon said the only thing stock on his 2010 Harley-Davidson Street Glide is the frame. Shannon’s Harley features a “diamond cut motor” and customized air suspension for a smoother ride. The paint is a deep shade of pearlized blue with streaks of fire that makes it look as though the motorcycle is going through fire as it thunders down the road.

Shelley says Harley owners are passionate about their motorcycles.

It’s a passion that goes deeper than the thrill of taking to the road, or that thunderous sound that he described as a “unique” that no other motorcycle manufacturer comes close to duplicating.

Many Harley-Davidson owners are veterans, he said.

“They’re Americans. They believe in America. They believe in buying American, and that’s another passion that they have — to keep it in the American family,” Shelley said.

The American motorcycles have a history that spans more than 100 years.

When Shelley gets on his Harley, he might not have any destination in mind. Nor does he need a GPS.

“It doesn’t matter where I’m going. I’m not in a rush to go there. I’m not in a rush to get back,” he said.

Shelley takes his time and discovers new roads and areas.

“Eventually you’re going to come out on a main drag somewhere.”
