Back away and run! You don't want to be here! We are evil! Seriously I didn't know it was a concern (I have been accessing this site for years and never had my anti-virus block it or give any warning); probably just overactive protection. There should be a simple way to add this site to a safe list.

Something really weird there.
There *is* a page for Bicycle Classics, but it has the following crap at the top which redirects you:

<script>
var s=document.referrer;
if(s.indexOf("google")>0 || s.indexOf("bing")>0 || s.indexOf("aol")>0 || s.indexOf("yahoo")>0)
{
self.location='http://www.louisvuittonblack.com/';
**
</script>

So you get redirected to louisvuittonblack w/o ever seeing the content of the page.

Looks like they got hit by a redirect exploit that sends you to a suspicious Louis Vuitton site. The Google cache has a copy of the real site dated July 11, 2014,so it looks like this just happened.

I've just had an email discussion with Greg Parker, the owner of Bicycle Classics. He was unaware that his site had been hacked and has now restored it to how it should be, so he is open for business again. He is working with the host admin to determine just what happened and prevent similar things in the future.

Good job, John! Greg is a great guy and would never let his site stay that way. This cannot be his fault.
