Cannondale Shuts Down

Racer X has learned that the Cannondale motorcycle project may be over. The company closed its Bedford and Bethel plants, in Pennsylvania, today, marking the end of production on motorcycles and quadcycles, as well as the bicycles that come out of those buildings. The ambitious Cannondale motorcycle project had been troubled from the start, though it appeared they were turning a corner recently, especially in the quadcycle market. However, several calls have come in from people close to the company saying that Cannondale did not make the payroll this week and had shut its doors. We will let you know more on this breaking story.

Re: Cannondale is going...going...gone

It's always sad to here when a company goes under. Just think about all the people that work at the plant that are going to lose there jobs. Pluss other then being ugly I thought there quads where pretty cool.
