It seems Vanguard Moto still has a chunk of work ahead before its bikes hit the market, with details of their crowdfunding plans hitting the Interwebz.
We first told you about Vanguard a month ago, when the company started to show off plans for its new Roadster model. As we noted at the time, the company is still months away from delivering its first bikes to market, and it appears there’s a very good reason for that: Vanguard is still trying to raise funds.
You can see the company’s crowdfunding drive here. Whether it’s worth investing or not, we can’t predict (crowdfunding is risky business, as everyone who remembers Skully knows). However, for $8 a share, you can buy in and lord it over your friends, calling yourself “part owner of a motorcycle manufacturer.” It’s just a really small part of a really small manufacturer …
According to the fundraiser page, Vanguard is hoping to raise between $125,000 and $960,000 US — a pretty wide range. Buying in gets you perks, depending how much cash you drop, but unless you have plenty of dough, the chance to get a discount on a Vanguard still isn’t much use to you.
