Hi Darren

It looks like AIM Fan Model has a website :

http://aimkits.com/

...but it's not really user-friendly

Here's another view of the 1:1 one :

Nice review Darren, of a product I will undoubtedly get as I'm a Russian bike owner myself.
The kit producers have not quite gotten its lineage correct however. The only thing it has in common with the Harley D is the V twin, whoch other bikes of the era had as well. The motor more closely resembles that in a 1929 Indian. And the frame is a very BMW like (for the time) pressed steel design, not used by Harley then. It is a rigid frame however, which both the Harelys and Indians of the time had, and which required a certain amount of fortitude to ride.

Thank you for the feedback and the added picture and information. Robert your additional info is a great help as I found locating info very difficult as a lot of links took me to Harley Davidson bikes. If you opt to get one Rob and you add all of the line painting to the model I would very mnuch like to see a picture of it.
