Question RYCA motors co. Selling off the brand

Since I was one of those individuals who purchased one of RYCA motors complete cafe conversion kits for the XL , I’ve been getting their updates and emails on new products etc . My most recent one is a notice of Sale of the molds , jigs and various items concerning that product line , an original concept bike is also included in the buy . Wondering how many of the inmates here used their designs in their builds . I hope that the product line will continue under another ownership and even do some better marketing / PR . Sad to see that they are going in another direction , but , s*** happens . I hope for the best for RYCA and any prospective owners .

Too bad, I always liked most of their designs. I had a cafe style RD400 back in the late 1970's, a full on pocket rocket.

the good thing is you can pretty much source out everything in the kit, the bad thing is getting the exhaust I don't think anyone makes those exhaust pipes and I really like how that exhaust looks.
