"nothing ventured, nothing gained." you put yourself out there and went where many people fear to tread.
personally, i dont have the cojones (or funds) to try anything bigger than doing run-of-the-mill builds out of my garage. you gave it a shot and therefore get MAN POINTS.
all here, are in agreement that your talents/skills/products are innovative and top-shelf.
perhaps, the market isnt quite ready for you because of the economy and/or popularity of motored bikes, that is still in it's infancy.
i'm glad to see this thread kicked up some biz for you before you're done. in fact, i'd like to get a sprocket adapter to put the wide tire back on megan's GT Kustom Duece.
we salute you, good sir
Thank you Spunout!
Karen and I live in a small apartment near the shop. All of our machines and tooling are paid for. In terms of a small American manufacturing operation, we can get by on very little. The last thing I want to do is close shop. The auctioneer predicted a final closeout of 28K for the shop. I've spent over 100K at deal prices to set-up the shop. We nearly cried, as we don't want to loose it! Our efforts running the machines should be able to make us a meager living.
Let me know when you're ready for the Deuce set-up. It requires a special dished sprocket. The customer that got the one shown on my website still rides regularly with no problems...I built that bike december "08"
