$167,000 in Fines Paid by Thunder Mountain Custom Cycles

This page finalized September 26, 2007


The Mobile Source Enforcement Section in conjunction with the ARB's Office of Legal Affairs, entered into a Settlement Agreement in July 2007 for the amount of $167,000 with Thunder Mountain Custom Cycles, Inc., located in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Thunder Mountain had been issued an Executive Order by ARB for model year 2006 so that they could sell their motorcycles in California. During routine inspections at various Harley Davidson dealers that carry Thunder Mountain motorcycles, it was found that the dealers had sold and were offering for sale 2007 model year Thunder Mountain Motorcycles. No Executive Order had been issued by ARB for the 2007 models that had been sold or were being offered for sale. All of the motorcycles that were inspected had all of the proper emissions equipment, but they all had 2006 emissions labels. Thunder Mountain agreed to remove from California all of the 2007 models that were non-California certified. Thunder Mountain agreed to pay $167,000 into the Air Pollution Control Fund to settle this matter. Thunder Mountain also paid an additional $90,000 for the penalties that had been assessed against their dealers.
