    I was in Newburgh about 3 weeks ago and OCC "world headquarters" was still there. No idea about PJD.

    Sr just barely saved his world headquarters from foreclosure not too long ago. He was counting on the European market to bail him out. Good luck with that.

    Those bikes were waaaaaayyy overpriced. It lead smaller local bike builders to jack theirs up. Allmost all of them are out of bidness too. Good. 50k for a bike? Get da fuck outta here.

    ya, what most didnt realize was those 100k+ bikes were really just hour long commercials for the bidnes that contracted them... it was a typical bike bubble:c

    Paul Jr. should be fine, much of their income was derived from merchandise, and he was the one who came up with the OCC logo; i suppose he holds the copyrights on that.
