Who makes Rovers North tops?

Sounds like what Rovers North did to Badger Coachworks...

No- but that doesn't apparently stop them from putting his name on a counterfeit version of his top- allegedly.

Check the rear corner of the RN top you purchased. If it isnt embroided and say Badger I would be very suspect of who made it.

I believe but can not verify that some RN customers have returned these counterfiets for a full refund.

Also Bager is making what they call the Badger III which is the same product they wholesaled to RN .

We should most likely start a new thread about the Badger Coachworks identification.

I think another part of the contention was that RN was still using the badger name even on the copies. I talked to Chris about it when we we ordering a top and he's quite shaken up by the whole thing.
FWIW- I didn't start this thread- it was retitled by someone else (admins?) and spawned off from a response to the Scorpion 'dissing' if the guy with the disk handbrakes.

I think the deal that's going on now that badger and RN 'fell out' is that RN still uses a similar logo and the marketing material implies they are still the same tops. I dunno- moral of the story is call Badger for a top if you want a good one.
