Dallas-based American IronHorse Motorcycle Co. grew from a small custom shop to one of the largest American bike builders in the American-hybrid industry. Founded by Bill Rucker and Tim Edmondson in 1995, the company recently announced sales growth of 150 percent in 2001 over the prior period, for its first full profitable year. Edmondson credits much of the company’s success to a strong dealer network and dedication to customer service after the sale. American IronHorse has recently expanded to 70 dealers nationwide, and offers seven different 2003 models, ranging in price from $22,490 to $33,900. With your choice of 107- or 113-cubic-inch S&S engines in stretched DayTec rigid, rubber- or soft-style frames, the bikes also provide a choice of five- or six-speed transmissions. Parts produced in-house include calipers, swingarms, lower fork legs, triple trees and wheels.
