You are looking at a sharp 1974 American Lafrance Fire truck. It was retired in 2011 from a fire department in Pennsylvania and was purchased by a man who bought it for his sons 5th birthday.
I guess he got his daughter a pony for her birthday. It was recently traded in on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The paint is in very good condition. it does have some bubbles in the paint on the passenger door (see the video). The chrome mirrors have some surface rust. The tires are in excellent condition and it has power steering and a suspension seat making it easy to drive. It is powered by a monster size Cummins diesel and a 5 speed transmission. 4th gear is 1:1 ratio and powers the PTO pump. I am told it’s fully functional. however I don’t know how to work the controls. The modern fire truck siren is fully functional. it has several electronic modes. It has dual very loud air horns and the emergency lights all work as they should. Its easy to start and has very strong air brakes. you can shift with or without the clutch. We hope it will find its way into a volunteer fire department or a private collector. There was one sold at a collector car auction and from the pictures it was not as clean as this one. If you have any questions give us a call.

As the 1970s began. there was a noticeable industry trend toward better-equipped. fancier motor fire apparatus. With plenty of federal money available. America's fire chief insisted on having all the bells and whistles on their new fire apparatus. In 1970. American LaFrance responded to this trend with a new premium version of its 900 Series. The new 1000 Series came loaded with all of what had been the 900s most popular options. The super deluxe 1000 Series pumpers and aerials were recognizable by a bright aluminum trim panel on the lower cab front and the spread-winged American Eagle which surmounted the bar-type ALF nameplate. The 1000 Series pumpers had extra chrome and trim. Many were ordered with stainless steel pump panels. Cummins diesel power was optional on this new premium series. The plainer. less expensive 900 Series models were still available to communities that didn't want to splurge for the top-line 1000 Series jobs. Dimensions are: 10' Tall. 8'2" wide. 27' 8" long

About Us

Who is Texas Best Used Motorcycles?

Texas Best Used Motorcycles is the latest offering of the No Limits Powersports family of dealerships.   No Limits has been associated with the retail motorcycle business since 1996. We started out in a 6. 00 sq. ft. facility across from the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Texas.   We built our business on quality relationships with quality people.   With the dawn of the internet. our business exploded!  In 2003 we bought a new building in the southeast corner of Six Flags Mall. just minutes from Texas Ranger’s Ballpark.   Our state of the art. 27. 00 sq. ft. facility provided room for our growing business. After nine years at Six Flags Mall. we have yet again outgrown our facility.   Accordingly. we decided to open Texas Best Used Motorcycles as an additional outlet for our growing customer base.    

What makes Texas Best Used Motorcycles different from other motorcycle dealers?

We distinguish ourselves from other dealers in variety of ways.   The single most important reason is the quality of our motorcycles.   Over the past 17 years. we have bought and sold approximately 20. 00 motorcycles.   Such significant experience teaches you what to look for in a quality motorcycle. We primarily obtain our motorcycles from car dealers who take the motorcycles as trade ins. Our dealer principal spent almost 30 years in the automotive industry and has forged strong relationships with dealers nationwide.   We also actively purchase motorcycles from individuals just like you!

Another important distinction is our business model.   After combing through countless customer surveys. we have built a store around what you want!  Our sales process is very simple.   When you come in to our store. all of our motorcycles are arranged by price.   It makes it very easy for you to look through the bikes in your price range.   In addition. all of the prices are right there on the motorcycle.   No need to ask a high pressure salesman for a price.   The best part about our business model is our $10. 00 price cap.   That's right!  Every motorcycle in our inventory is less than $10. 00.

When you come in to Texas Best you will find value priced bikes. a relaxed atmosphere. and an exceedingly simple sales process.   Come by our showroom today and let us show you why we are different from any motorcycle dealer you have ever experienced.
