  1. DON'T GET SCAMMED AT YOUR MOTORCYCLE DEALERSHIP AND WIRING TIPS

    Going to an established motorcycle dealership does not guarantee their mechanics are honest and trustworthy. Being in business over 10 years we’ve seen just about everything.  Shops charging anywhere from $250 to $1500 for the same installation!  On newer Harley’s they’re using the Can Bus system.  So unlike the old bikes where you have to pull a thick pack of wires through, the Can Bus just pulls a few on each side.  When it comes to aftermarket custom installations, it’s not uncommon in our industry to see such shady individuals falsely claim defects or poor quality exists, suggesting that the bars have jagged edges which took a significant amount of time to clean out and perhaps replacing wiring so they can (1) charge customers for additional labor and / or (2) try to convince that customer to switch to a like product they sell.

     

     Our manufacturing specifically addresses this step.  We intentionally smooth out any and all such jagged edges specifically to ensure wiring is unaffected.  Our bars cannot go to the next step in manufacturing this step is completed.  Almost always the mechanic will not show a customer the alleged jagged edges in advance.  They only mention it after they’ve supposedly removed them after a laborious, time consuming process.  Furthermore, there is no tool that can reach such jagged edges to smooth them out once the center and hand controls have been TIG welded. A file cannot enter the bottom or top holes and make the angle to clean the inside edges.  Here’s how we clean the insides of the bars prior to welding them… https://www.instagram.com/p/BpVO7fjB4Pa/

     

    For our customers who choose to install on their own we offer some tips I’ll share with you.  Our customers who followed our suggestions, circled back with us after t

  2. Luna metal Buildings and concrete scam artist's ?

    I’m writing this to share my series of unfortunate experiences upon hiring Luna Metal Buildings and Concrete.  I say experiences (plural) because they failed to disclose pertinent information, conduct themselves honestly and deliver the product I should have received.  I’ll start from the beginning…

    I contacted Luna Metal Buildings and Concrete with the intention of purchasing a 30x31 metal building. I spoke with Sofia, their representative.  She informed me I needed to provide them with an initial cash deposit or cashers check to get the ball rolling.  Once they received this initial payment they’d come out and pour the concrete within 2 to 3 weeks. Following the concrete installation, the building would be installed within an additional 2 to 3 weeks.  The balance would be due at this point in time.  She asked me if I was going to pull a permit and I differed to her asking if I needed one.  Her response was simply I didn’t need a permit.  Knowing what I know now, Sofia should have said is if this new building was being installed “as is” on farm exempt property, then no permit would be required.  HOWEVER if electric was going to be run to the building, then a permit would in fact be required.  Sofia also neglected to mention their buildings are NOT up to code when a permit is not pulled.  In short, you basically get an expensive shed.  When a permit is pulled, to meet code, Luna installs additional strap-downs and support beams.  I now regret accepting Sofia’s incorrect answers which I wish I researched further on my own.  It’s unfortunate I couldn’t rely on receiving accurate information from the company I hired and entrusted.

    Moving forward…  After I provided them my initial payment, not 2-3 weeks later but 5 weeks later they called and said they were coming out to pour the concrete and asked if I needed any grading. I said it was pretty flat and sent them a photo.  They a
