Hellbound Steel?????

I want to start off by saying how much I love this site. I spend so much time reading and soaking up info that I couldnít get anywhere else. Thanks to all you regs and gurus, you arenít just helping the person who posted, but you are informing lots of amateur wrenches!

Does anyone know the status of Hellbound Steel? I know there were some rumblings about them closing, but I never could find anything that definitely confirmed that. None of my emails to the links on the HBS site were ever answered.

If they are closed, are there any HBS gurus here that I can direct my questions to?
Thanks

I cant actually say about HBS, but if you have questions, there are plenty of gurus (im not one of them) that can answer anything you ask. HBS is just the frame, all the other components are basically the same as any other v-twin bike.

no hellbound steel is one off bike, we made the frames the wheels the front ends every thing but the fork tubes,the brakes the rotors,even made our own handle bars and foot controls as for hellbound it's gone but might be back i don't know for sure it was the people that made the bike hellbound, i do miss the hbs days but i'm sure some other people do to, it wasn't an easy life lot's of over time and then the life style that go's with it if you need any info pm me will help all i can as i worked there for quite some time and can get any part you need as american made the company that produced all the parts is still open and i just talked to paul this morning as a matter of a fact and watch for the new motor cycle company coming out a more toned down chopper and guess what i 'm involed so stay tuned will be fun to be back building bikes again like i said any questions i'll try to help as for any warrranty work good luck i wish i could help on that wasn't my company i just worked for them , so keep looking the hellbound owners are still around .....scrotum

Wow fasthd, i stand corrected... I didn't know HBS or American Made made all of their components. I just assumed they were like AIH or BBC... Thats still not to say that if he has problems with anything, most aftermarket parts will work as replacements...right?

I also remember when I had my bike painted, that the painter had two HBS tanks from the dealer to be repaired and repainted as I think they were cracking around the gas caps. Either way, my local dealer no longer stocks them and now deals with Pro-1, Saxon and Big Bear.

Now that's a bike I would have liked to have seen down here. Something simple, with a timeless "old school" look, and probably more affordable than the bigger Choppers.
