Can anyone help me with background on the H-D eBay seller from Elk River? See for example eBay listing #4599128017. Note, no description on any of the DWG for sale. Thanks.

Just looking at their feedback...they have some negative/neutral...might not be all their fault...i see some looked at the bike, then backed out after they won.

I see a description. They are a legit HD dealer with a few stores but I haven't dealt with them.

I live and work in Elk River, Zylstra has a reputation for being an expensive dealership to purchase a bike from. I believe they are honest and wouldn't screw you except for the price on the bike. As of recent they have been getting better about being more competive with other dealerships. Before I would buy from them, I would make sure to have all your ducks in a row and make sure there are no hidden costs. (as with any dealership) Other than that, good luck.

The general consensus of those I know - Zylstra's - high priced, competent mechanically, honest, slow service department, unresponsive customer service.

Zylstra's in Elk River

It looks like the original poster is in Michigan, so you may not be aware that Elk River is just north of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Zylstra's (at least the one in Elk River) is NOTORIOUS for having their bikes rediculously over priced, usually by several thousand dollars. Just an example here, I recently checked on an Ultra there and they would not come down anywhere near MSRP on it and would not budge on freight and setup. Drove 30 miles or so south to Twin City's HD in Blaine and the sales manager (Kale Olson) was willing to sell me the same bike for $1000.00 under MSRP with NO charges for freight or setup.

When I bought my FLSTF in 2002, Zylstra's was by far the highest priced dealer out of eight of them I checked within 90 minutes of my house. They absolutely would not deal and lost a sale because of it. If they are pitching you a sale that sounds too good to be true then it is. I would have them fax you over a complete and signed purchase agreement so you can see the complete out the door price :bannedmf: . Friendly people there, but they have a huge reputation for the poorest prices in town.

Everything I've heard about them, from friends trying to deal with them, just confirms the negatives already expressed. Very overpriced, and unwilling to move. Must have to keep the inflated prices so they can afford all those full page ads in magazines like American Iron.
