Was Valtek a joint venture of some sort with Harpers? Intrigued about the history since I have some Valtek mufflers from Harpers, which seems they were just an exclusive thing.

Funny, he drove to St Louis to get the bike and Harper's is outside of Kansas City.    :rolleyes:

When he got that bike he headed south and found out he's left his wallet at Curtis' house. Curt called and I floated him a some $$ to get home on. He's a good dude!

Wow!  Sold for what I would say is the paltry sum of $9,000.  I was thinking about jumping in, but as you all know I am way over-served already!
