Having retired from the motorcycle industry, <harley davidson tech>, I can't help responding to this thread. I see a very similar situation here when comparing HD's and AS. In 1969-70 when AMF purchased HD they we not satisfied with the production numbers and stepped it up. Can't remember the numbers but it was well beyond the number that could be produced and still retain quality. You probably know where I'm going with this by now. After reading about the purchase by Thor and the way AS workers are now paid based on production numbers I now understand why the new AS I purchased was in the condition it was delivered in. Component wise it is ok but the assembly is HORRIBLE I mean HORRIBLE. Half the inside components, dinnett, moniter system, bath door window trim , book racks are install crooked nothing is level or plumb. screws were falling out or missing , refrg. door hindge pins unscrewed and the door nearly fell off. Time or space won't permit telling it all. This vehicle reminds me so much of the HD's I described in that in spite of all this I really like it, but I feel very dissapointed. After taking with customer service they said they would be more than happy to take care of any and all the problems but my dissapointment isn't that they wouldn't take care of them but that they would have so little concern for me a customer who will probably buy another AS some day in spite of this. It just seems that loyality only goes one way as for as they are concerned !
