    i think its funny how he pictured with a Harley.. seeing as his buddy is paid for by Indian..

  3. 3 Bernie Carter Sep 10th, 2013 at 10:58 am

    Simply because Mike Wolfe is into Indians and Frank Fritz prefers Harleys.

    I would sit in on that discussion and never hurts to check out vintage bikes

    Indy and Cincy are over and it’s about time. Both are winter shitholes.

    I like Frank better anyway. He doesn’t spend half his air time making fun of someone whose supposed to be his friend.

    There are bikes worth collecting. A good friend recently purchased a 1915 Indian Twin from a gentleman who had it in the basement of the farm house, the bike belonged to his grandfather.

    Frank seems like a solid an interesting guy but his partner Mike Wolfe is as phony as a 3 dollar bill.

    Every 10 years the economy tanks. It always will. There is a program in place in the stock market called “use it or lose it”. If you have an investment portfolio of around 500K today, you can remove up to 25K (called fruit picking) and re-build your investment automatically over 30 days sometimes, to re-coup your harvest. I had 530K in one such account, withdrew 22K over (3) months and that account is back up to 520K today.

    Don’t keep all of your money unspent. You’ll lose another 1/3 of your investments with the next crash. TAKE YOUR MONEY OUT NOW and buy yourself a motorcycle and thus remember, “A motorcycle (weed) will get your through periods of no money, better than money (sitting in an account waiting around for the next Wall Street “bandits” to come along) will get your mind freed-up to clear thinking at 65 mph, without a twist-grip in your hand” .

    Prosperous good times are a hot dog on a stick. If you don’t take some money out for yourself NOW, the next engineered recession will take it for you. ~ Gone ~~ like birds in the wind. Then you’ll wait anothe5 8 yrs. for your accounts to rebuild from the next recession like 2005, or whenever the last one landed on us.

    Oh great, my note got published. This one should too, since there’s a TON of people out there who may inherit money, or not know enough about finance and it will slip through your fingers, faster than the years can whip by.
    There has been no solid financial information given to biker’s until now.
    This lady is a broker for life. She has at least 28+ years at the desk of AXA (tough-NY licensed_. Read those little letters after her name. Always look for brokers with the most letters is a good rule of thumb. I have no incentive other than to wish people wouldn’t squander away their nest egg before they get advice.
    Only one thing you have to remember. On page 6 (give or take) in every prospectus (the little booklet federally mandated to accompany your investment package for every investment you might make), the is listed: Total yearly fund cost…. 0.69%. That’s as much as you want to see. If you see total fund cost above 1% call her and ask why. Sometimes there is a good reason. That’s all you need to know. No charge to ask, everybody’s financial needs are different, almost like a finger-print. Kathleen is a biker’s broker you can trust. How else has stepped forward? Are we a club of people or a group of hyenas?

    Neither of them impress me one bit
    Would be more interested if they brought in the guy from “Wheels of Time”

  12. 12 Kirk Perry Sep 11th, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    “the guy from “Wheels of Time”
    Dale Walksler. The AMCA outlaw. Sure. Why not. Once the barn supply dwindles, there’s walk-thru adventures and stories from people like Dale & Co., and the non-internet connected like Kick-Start M/C Parts, Chuck Wesholski. “Search” his name on my site. Look at the pics (of this person whose still alive mind you) of him behind the wheel of twin knuckle motor midget built by C.B. Clausen and friends. You can tied all of those people together and more from the pages of Bill Hayes, Wild Ones. Long Beach people. Lots of history that you can still walk through. Dixie Distributing’s bldg. too. There’s more genuine history out there.

    Love the show American Pickers and vintage motorcycles. On American Pickers Frank Fritz seems very knowable about vintage motorcycles so don’t miss him. Attend the State Fair in Syracuse New York Mike Wolfe was there he is also very knowable about vintage motorcycles.
