Thread: NOS vs POS Motorcycle Part

    NOS vs POS Motorcycle Part

    OK folks, I certainly hope everyone here knows the difference between an NOS part and a POS part for a classic motorcycle.

    NOS is New Old Stock (and that's usually very good) while POS is Piece Of S#it, which is usually very bad.

    Pretty simple- NOS is for an Indian, and POS is for a Harley

    That's true, and in all fairness, I should've said so. I have spent many thousands of dollars on eBay in the past year, and have made some outstanding purchases! And a few not so good.....................

    If ya don't like riding and ya love grief, put yer buns on an Indian Chief. If ya do like ridin' and havin' fun, buy a Harley 61.

    If I had a Harley, I'd leave it for a thief,
    Take the insurance money, and buy an Indian Chief
