    Thumbs up HD York, PA Factory Tour

    How many times to you get to ride your bike to where it was built? I did... how F'in cool

    As part of a larger ride/rally I did off another website... what a great week! But here's some pics from the York Operations Plant tour.
    Its completely free and open to the public.

    Seriously consider taking one if you are in the area. I'm glad I did now just in case they do end up closing this facility. Which would be ashame cause the place has some MAJOR history. If you can check it out on the last weekend of Sep for their open house. 2000% cool then!

    The York HD Factory Tour

    90% cool for me
    10% not cool cause they were shut down







    Some show room fun inside before the tour. Can't take pics in the factory.

    Top rows of bikes are assembled at York. Bottom in Kansas.





    How they make tins


    A summary of how they assembly line assemble a bike
    How as they assemble the bike with sub-assembled parts.










    Did you know that the CVO bike are hand assembled by 2 people, besides the FLHs which is 4 people. No assembly line. INTERESTING!
