Jon_M Posted September 30, 2007 Share Posted September 30, 2007 I rode my /2 down to Irv Seaver's in Orange County today to look at some of their vintage bikes and check on some parts. As usual on the weekend, the place was extremely busy, with all the parking slots filled, all the sales personnel busy answering questions, closing deals, and giving test rides. I would guess there were 25 or so people milling around. On the way back home, Brown's in Pomona was just a little out of the way, so I detoured over there to see what they had in the way of vintage stuff. It was a graveyard. Parking lot was practically empty and I only saw a couple of customers, one buying a Vespa and another dropping off an airhead for service. They had a free lunch setup but no one was eating (this was at about 1 pm). I saw three people in the showroom. I'm not sure why I am reporting this, except that it really surprised me to see the difference in energy in two old-line dealers within a few miles of each other. Is there something going on at Brown's that would account for the strange quiet around the place? Link to comment
