TheState.com in South Carolina reports on the Harley Davidson Spring Rally in Myrtle Beach and local motorcycle shops.
According to TheState.com, the rally is a big time for sales for local bike builders weathering the effect of a struggling economy.
Riders are modifying old bikes to look new using custom parts. After-market parts are cheaper than buying a brand new bike. Motorcycle store owners say that few people buy a motorcycle, new or used, and drive it without some sort of personalized modification.
