I currently own three AIH ~ LSCs , also one Big Dog, and one 93 Harley Evo. Two 04 and one 06. All three AIH motorcycles have been pure pleasure to own. Not without issues. All three were changed out with after market ignitions, one problem solved. Also AIH are delivered with Korean 6 speed transmissions. Out of the three, I had to replace one. One other common problem is the speedometer/tachometer they are a POS, either replace or do without. I love the fact they not only look great, but also have plenty of kick you in the ass POWER...

The good about the bike is that it looks and rides great! The bad is that the bike always has something breaking. There is always something that needs to be fixed. If you buy this bike it’ll make you feel like a bad ass riding it, and it will be fun to ride, but unfortunately, it will spend a lot of time at the mechanic. If you want a chopper without headaches. Buy a Honda Fury. However, if you are mechanically inclined. The Ironhorse might be the bike for you. If you luck out and get one somewhat reliable. It is a blast to ride.

The fit & finish on the bike is great. Make sure you change the tranny fluid from the factory. My bike wouldn't shift right until I filled it with Amsoil 85-140 mixed 50% with Lucas. I have no problems other than leaning on turns. Forget about any snaked curves. I have the 200mm tire which outperforms the 240 or 280, also I don't like the fat tire look; it is out of style anyway. Yeah my battery was were bad but they all are. Ironhorse's engineering and reliability are fairly good - as good as Harley. I have three of those that just sit in my garage on a battery trickle charger. Everyone says the bike looks really good. I would rather have the Classic Chopper than the Texas Chopper because of the 200mm tire. (They use Metzler which are great tires.) The S&S 100 motor is easy to start in the cold but doesn't have near the pull of an S&S 111. When I hear about other Chopper owners' problems, I feel very fortunate as mine were very minimal.

I own four bikes - a Harley Fat Boy and Wide Glide and an American Ironhorse LSC and Texas Chopper. I don't have as much time to ride as I would like. When I do open the garage, it seems I always pick the Texas Chopper. Mine has the 117 with the Peacemaker paint job. I find it very comfortable for a chopper. It handles well and it always looks great. It is a real head turner. I also have a 2005 LSC. I love the bike, but it's a hardtail and our roads in PA are not the greatest. Neither bike has given me a bit of trouble. I followed the break in schedule and have it serviced by the book and I don't ride like an idiot. If you're only going to have one bike, go with the Texas Chopper. I can't wait until Sunday!

It rides as well as, if not better than, my Roadglide. It's smooth, reliable, fun and eye-catching to say the least. I would recommend this bike to anyone in the market for a high performance V-twin that is comfortable enough to take on a long ride.

Purchased bike used with 2000 miles on it. Bike has been nothing but awesome. Just the other day I started having minor problems with the instrument cluster. Overall I love it. Strap a 111 cu s&s to your back and see if some nuts rattle loose. The question with custom bikes is not will you have minor problems but how many. Personally I have had very few. What few I have had, I fixed myself instead of whining to my dealer. If you can't fix it, don't ride it...

WHEN I BOUGHT MY IRONHORSE, I FEEL IN LOVE WITH IT. THE POWER, THE HANDLING, AND THE APPEARANCE- NO ONE ELSE HAS GOT THAT RIGHT NOW. BUT REMEMBER ALL CUSTOM BUILT OR MASS PRODUCED MOTORCYCLES/VEHICLES HAVE PARTS THAT ARE ALL MAN MADE AND ARE SUBJECT TO DEFECTS AND HUMAN ERROR. I HAVE RODE MY SLAMMER 1300 MILES SO FAR- ONLY HAD 1 NO START (BAD CONNECTOR AT STARTER) AND THE CRANKSHAFT DRIVE SPROCKET NUT BACKED OFF ENOUGH THAT IT HAD A LOUD RATTLING NOISE, BUT DID NO DAMAGE. I HAVE HAD HARLEYS THAT HAS WENT DOWN WITH PROBLEMS. MY ONLY PROBLEM IS FINDING A GOOD DEALER WITH TECHICIANS THAT KNOW HOW TO FIX THEM, AND THERE IS NOT ENOUGH DEALERS AROUND. I HAVE TO GO 100 MILES EACH TIME I WANT SERVICE ON MY HORSE. MY COUSIN HAS A 2004 TEXAS CHOPPER AND ONLY BROKE DOWN TWICE SINCE HE HAS HAD IT- BATTERY AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR.

I received my new 2006 Outlaw from my new wife as a wedding present (aren't you guys jealous) it should be a requirement. My wife and I have put over twenty five hundred miles on the bike in the few months we've owned it, what a blast. We live in Southern California and ride up and down the beautiful coast practically every weekend. The bike runs and looks flawless and we have never been able to ride anywhere without people asking about the bike and commenting the bikes beauty (also my wife's, she looks great riding on the back). The fun factor is off the charts, I recommend the American Ironhorse product line to any one that needs to put the excitement back into their lives. I can't thank my wife enough, Oh! And thank you American Ironhorse for building such a quality product.
