I asked this exact question a couple months back about my Supreme but didn't get a lot of info back. I don't really remember them that much from "back in the day." I was given this one for some work I did and it's quite the nice ride. In the last couple months I've seen a few more in town so there must have been a dealer here, but no one remembers. I've also seen a couple on ebay with low miles go for low prices. Studying mine in comparison to the thousands of bikes I've worked on I give it a nice big thumbs up overall. The ride quality is excellent and craftsmanship is quite good. Like most people during that time all you heard about was Italian, Italian, Italian. . . .maybe a little British and maybe French. The general opinion was Japanese stuff was just a bunch of mass produced junk. I'm trying to amend that indoctrination in myself and finding others who as willing to learn. enjoy, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives SB, CA --
