Worried investors are buying gold, silver and Swiss Francs, now the strongest currency in the world. To the point where Swiss government is so scared that the country exportations would collapse that it is thinking again, like several decades ago, of obliging banks to give negative interest on Swiss Francs deposits… And one victim in our industry of a too strong currency will probably be fellow Swiss Custom Builder Christian De Kant. The aluminum conversion kit for Harley Sportster 86 & up that he designed (fabrication and stamping under his control made by Italian company MAS Engineering) is an easy bolt-on way to turn your stock bike into a shiny and light Cafe Racer.
Problem? At 1 Swiss Franc = 1.26 US Dollars, the kit will cost you the price of a brand new Sportster and more. But for those who have found a way to escape our deep US recession, I list the price in Swiss Francs (to not scare you) for the complete kit and of each component that you can buy separately. For the others, pleasure of the eyes… Kit sold online at at DK Motorrad. Now, if a US builder would have done this kit, with our devaluated US Dollar, it would be today the exact opposite, the cheapest Sportster aluminum body kit in the world for foreign buyers…The prices in Swiss Francs. Complete kit. 6,800. Aluminum tank 2,400. Belt Guard 200. Aluminum seat. 1400. Pinion cover. Aluminum fairing 500. Exhaust system 1800. Aluminum handlebars. 200. Front fender 320.
