Well, in the case of the ACE and Shadow 1100 models, the engine/tranny setup and suspension components were made in Japan and the rest of the parts were made in the USA like the frame, tank, electrical items like the CDI box--I think I have that in an article from when the ACE was the new kid on the block in the 90's--I'll have to find it and scan it. In all reality, there are many foreign parts on the Harleys including their OEM accessories. A lot of HD guys do not realize that their forks and shocks are made by SHOWA, a company owned by HONDA. Most of the accessories I have bought for the Road King like the chrome doo-dads and such are made in either Taiwan or China it seems like. Go figure.
