zoey, you should take a read of ac's warranty information. there is a part that pertains to your logo / sticker removal... http://www.amclassic.com/Warranty.html
"NOTE REGARDING LOGOS - American Classic will not warranty any product where the American Classic logo has been removed from the product"
that is one strange clause - are they afraid of bootleggers?
here in germany there are two types of "warranty":
one is implied, granted by law and lasts 2 years. (Gewährleistung). Every thing you buy has that, the seller/producer can not change the terms.
the other one *can* be granted by the producer (Herstellergarantie) - here the producer is free to write whatever he likes, but he can only extend the terms of the implied warranty, never reduce these.
is there a similar thing in the US?
I'm no lawyer but in germany they couldn't refuse the legally granted warranty because of missing stickers, unless they proved that that caused the failure
With the manufacturers warranty they are free to decide on the terms. But since AC only grants 1 year anyway....
Having removed stickers from Brakes, Rims, Frames in the past... unfortunately the "ritchey" and "michelin" stickers on my scott are under clear coat
