for personal reasons only, i hate to admit it, but u simply can not go
wrong with a mick. new is best, used is okay provided now one has hurt the adjustment seats, u know cranked down to hard etc etc. we ran the micks in the early 70,s for example when they first got kinda used for r&R. they rocked then and now, they are more refined and really honk. smooth, good mpg and ten other reasons. its just a fact. they WORK good period.. bias has nothing to do with u.or anyone else who runs them. my deal only. hope this helps in anyway. lupe
