    Nobody cares….really nobody cares.

  2. Hi Hank says:

    Hi Hank, do I detect a little jealousy?

  3. Hank says:

    No, these guys screwed me, so I would call it spite.

  4. ARDCORE says:

    Hank,
    If you have the time shoot me an email with your problem concerning Ardcore and let me see if I can make things right.

  6. Hank says:

    Wow Jon, you want to make it right now? Come on for months you ignored my emails, and didn’t answer the phone, when you did you would tell me that my parts had shipped and they had not. When I called for the tracking number you lied and said you would email it to me, then you lied when I called you on it and gave me a tracking number that went to the other side of the US. When I finially recieved my parts they ship date on the UPS lable was three weeks after you said you shipped it. I would NEVER lie to my customers. If you were swamped you could of been up front and told me it would be three months before I got my stuff or offered a refund. I hope you’ve learned alot in the last couple of years and that you treat your customers better now. I wish you sucess because your talented and have good products, but you’ll never achieve it with poor customer service.

    Hank

    Give Ardcore a break they are having a hard time with “some” people “stealing” their one off Idea’s .

  8. Hank says:

    Whoa Fred, I am a shop owner, I could have easily taken a pic of Ardcore’s stuff to another local fab shop and said whip me up a set of these. I ordered my parts, and they said two weeks. It was three months before I got my parts. We were building a bike for a benifit, needless to say we did the bike totally different than what was agreed too. We had to use parts from other bikes and companies to deliver the bike on time. I felt horrible, but there was no remorse from Ardcore. I guess if you don’t know the facts Fred, stay out of it. I understand people steal idea’s, call Fab Kevin and ask how he feels. I have had idea’s stolen from me just by taking bikes to shows.

  9. Fred says:

    Hank I feel for you , my point is I can’t see where any one is doing any thing so cool they have to worry about some one “stealing” their ideas , if it’s got two wheels and a motor then your “stealing” Ardcores Idea’s . That’s what I’m trying to say ! Get it ?

    anyway… sweet scoot! Even nicer to see it being used.

    Urban Dictionary definition of a Douce Bag – A mega tool; typically a guy that thinks he’s cool, thinks everyone else thinks he’s cool, but clearly is not.

    Top 5 things that define someone as a doucebag:

    1. Jumps in the middle of posts with something totally unrelated and off subject just to take a cheap shot. Normally posts under a different name than normall.
    2. Physically takes dimensions off someone elses frame to build/modify there own. Wow, it looks just like the one they measured off of. Go figure.
    3. Spends 10 minutes eyeballing a new headlight bracket in someone elses shop and then makes there own.
    4. They are your buddy as long as they can buy parts at dealer cost and then bail when told its not financially feasible anymore.
    5. Jumps in the middle of posts with something totally unrelated and off subject just to take a cheap shot. Normally posts under a different name than normall.

    Keep up the great work John…some of us with “taste” love what you do.

  13. keith arvin says:

    i think it is so flattering that somebody likes your work and ideas they say u stole them…..and its pretty funny to that the headlight bracket i supposedly copied was commented on by an employee at ardcore asking why it was so big and bulky…..im not saying anything bad about ardcore. they build awesome bikes and great build and so do alot of people on this site. this comment is clearly saying thanks for the compliment on the headlight bracket…..

  15. Ted says:

    @ Ed johnston- “when ever Ardcore has a bike on this site the sh*t flys?!” I was just thinking the same thing. I agree with you though if you don’t like what’s on the site get off the computer!! Ridiculous, like Shotcaller said – Keep up the great work John…some of us with “taste” love what you do.

    @ Hank – I have no idea what went down with you and your situation with Ardcore. I’m sure you can work it out..

    And to: Haters and trolls go away!!
