I ordered parts from them a year ago. I have a dealer wholesale through them that I almost never used, and never heard anything. News to me.

But judging by the website (seeing as it is completely the same as it has been for the last forever, Its in a new location, still with Brighton Superbike, still selling sled parts... Seems like its pretty much the same place still.

I did find that Allied Leisure has been making clutch pullers for the last 16 years. And they have been in the location in Plymouth. Infact all the pullers I have purchased from Rec. Leisure are Allied Leisure.

Rec leisure is still around, they just moved buildings. They're now on Northville Road, in between 5 and 6 Mile, I believe. Might be between 6 & 7 Mile. It's a big yellowish industrial building on the East side of Northville Rd.

We must be talking about a different place. Are you referring to the ATV/Bike/ Snowmobile store that used to be at Orchard Lake and Grand River in Farmington, MI?

If so... I'll drive by the place I was talking about earlier tomorrow and see if they are still there. Last time I drove by was in the middle of the summer, so they very well could be shut down now.

Sweet I need parts for a 73 Rupp. 79 Pantera. and a 74 John Deere.

The Rupp and the JD are the important ones.

Yetti, that site is the exact same site Rec. Leisure has used for the past at least 5 years. It was always easier to go pick the catalog up. From the looks of it, they shut the farmington shop they moved into like 6 years ago down, and sold it/moved it to Northville Rd. in Plymouth...
