Motorcycle Tariff Hikes Ended

October 09, 1987|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Reagan today removed the tariff increases on heavyweight motorcycles he ordered four years ago, saying the action will not harm the domestic motorcycle industry.

The tariff hikes were imposed April 15, 1983, at the request of Harley Davidson Inc., the only U.S. manufacturer of heavyweight cycles. Harley Davidson later asked that the increases be removed as no longer necessary, and Reagan has often pointed to this as demonstrating that more restrictive trade laws are not needed.
