Here's an excerpt from the Terms and Conditions at the Alta site, as of this morning:
"Alta Motors Redshift bikes are sold and delivered only through reputable motorcycle dealerships. Delivery against a deposit is predicated upon Alta Motors signing a dealership agreement with a licensed dealership in your area. You can aid in this process by identifying your favorite dealership for us, and by notifying the dealership directly that you have placed a deposit on a Redshift. In the event that we cannot find a suitable dealership in your area, we will refund your deposit in full.
When a dealer in your area is identified and signed into the Alta Motors network, you will receive priority on the unit of your selection shipped to your area. If there are other depositors in your area, priority will be based on the order in which deposits were received."
As I read this, it basically states 'no local dealer, no bike' - and the Alta site lists only one "dealer", the Alta factory in San Francisco.
