    Do you guys have any actual experience with G&L?
    Their builds are some of the best around.

  5. Kaveeks says:

    G&L is Great! I had my xs done by Rich and he is one stand up guy for sure!!!

  6. donmillerx says:

    I should’ve listened to the warnings!

    BEWARE of G&L Choppers!

    They’ve had my bike and $4,000 for 2 1/2 YEARS!
    And still refuse to answer my calls.
    I’m not the only one.

    Check out the XS650 Forums, Chop Cult, Chopper Underground, Bobber Talk, Sohc, The Garage Journal… and judge for yourself.

    Interesting you should say you’ve been waiting 2 1/2 yrs….. I’ve been waiting nearly 4yrs since my $3600 down deposit + around $2000 or so in parts I’ve sent him.

    To be fair though, I’ve been to blame for some of the delay. I changed the design a couple times plus I held onto parts that he needed to complete the build for around 6 months.

    Also, I have to give credit that he & I have had some limited contact via phone & email over the last 6 months. I still have faith that Rich will get the job done soon. He really does seem to be a nice guy & honest. Time will tell….

    I’ll try to remember to update this post once I get the bike (God willing).

    We are definitely not the the only ones that have been waiting YEARS for a build from that shop. Please contact me by email.

    Just another update to let everybody know that this is actually STILL going on!

    We’ve been waiting for over 3 YEARS now for our bikes from G&L choppers and Richard Ford still refuses to accept our calls.

    Others have been and still are, waiting much longer.

    I actually said in my last email, that he could just keep my bike if he’d just return my deposit and yet, still no response.

    Again, multiple complaints have already been filed with the Colorado State Police Department and the Attorney General’s office as well as, at least (4) different complaints with the Better Business Bureau, just in 2012 alone.

    Beware of G&L Choppers and think twice before handing over your bikes to Rich Ford.

    Give your hard earned cash to small businesses that actually deserve it.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me what their experiance is with G and L? I have sent him my down payment money over a year ago and my bike still has not been completed. Not only that but he has only contacted me back 4 times! I am posting my email so I can get some real resposes. Please put G and L in the subject so I know. Thanks

    Hey Micheal,

    I’ve got everyone beat!… I gave a $3,400 deposit 11/6/09 to Richard Ford of G&L choppers. Since the original deposit, I’ve sent him a ACME Choppers narrow springer ($1000), a highly cut & re-welded/ painted gas tank (approx $2000), $600 NYC Choppers rotor/Jaybrake caliper ($600), and countless other parts (tons of custom fabrications with 50-100 hours of my hand labor to create). All said, Richard has approximately $7,800 of my money (including the original deposit, but NOT including my own hard labor).

    Today marks exactly 4 & 1/2 years since the original deposit. He has not communicated with me in well over a year. All along the way I’ve heard lame excuse, after excuse from him, until he decided to never reply to me in any way shape of form.

    Until Richard Ford makes good on his agreements with everyone he has boldly screwed, I will have to maintain that he is no more than a bold faced CRIMINAL!

    Anyone with good information of where my stuff is, please email me at David41129@aol.com
