American Ironhorse Motorcycles

American IronHorse was an American motorcycle manufacturer that was founded in 1995 by Tim Edmundson and Bill Rucker.

 At one time, AIH was the largest factory producer of custom motorcycles in the USA. Their 224,000-square-foot (20,800 m2) factory was located in Fort Worth, Texas, and housed the complete manufacturing process under a single roof. Although most (305) parts for the bikes were made in-house, such as the seats and wheels, all American IronHorse motorcycles were built with S&S engines and were assembled in-house. In Spring 2008, American Ironhorse ceased production on all cycles and most company assets were liquidated at auction.

The companies financial issues were in large part due to poor overall quality, nonexistent customer service and poor dealer relationships.

Broken frames, self destucting AIH proprietary transmissions, airride and electrical system issues were but a few of the issues the company refused to address.
