I took off my bags today to clean up the bike. I noticed a decal on the right side rear shock. It read "Showa".

That's strange to me...Showa is a suspension you can get for a Honda "car" sold by Mugen in Japan...

Anyone else notice that decal ?? Or is it a bad joke my freinds are playing???

No joke, guess who made the forks. <G>

Showa is actually owned by Honda, but they make suspension components of various qualities for all sorts of bikes.

Hmmmm...

Who'd a thunk...

I have the Showa stuff on my car, and when I saw that it blew me away...

It's a world economy....

40-45 percent of Harley's are made overseas. Even a knowledgable dealer will admit to this.
