Yesterday afternoon Malcolm Smith, one of the most influential men in the history of motorcycling, took up the fight yesterday against the Consumer Saftey Protection Committee, using his Riverside, California, dealership to have a protest sale against the CPSIA, now known infamously as "the lead law." With help from fellow moto legends like Jeremy McGrath, Jeff Ward, Scot Harden, Troy Lee, Mitch Payton and more -- and hosted by the incomparable Larry "Supermouth" Huffman -- Smith raised awareness on the ban by opening his showroom floor to all of the banned children's products, including motorcycles, parts and safety gear for children under the age of 12.
Our colleague over at VitalMX.com, Steve "Guy B." Giberson, interview Malcolm and friends and put together this cool slideshow.
