American IronHorse was, at one time, the largest producer of custom V twin motorcycles. Founded in 1995, the company could not survive the collapse of the power sports market in the aftermath of the U.S. mortgage and banking meltdown. It shut operations in 2008 and liquidated the remaining inventory, parts and equipment in July of 2009.
