boston_tea_party.jpgRiverside, California motorcycle dealer Malcolm Smith will risk fines of up to $1.8 million by selling motorcycles and quads to kids at his shop this Thursday, March 19. Smith is holding the one-time sale in protest of CPSIA and its nonsensical, knee-jerk ban on the sale of any product designed for children under 12 that contains lead. The MIC estimates the ban will cost the motorcycle industry $1 billion in 2009. Smith will be supported on Thursday by racers Jeff Ward and Jeremy McGrath as well as graphics impresario Troy Lee. We hope many members of the public will also show their support by purchasing bikes and quads for their children.
