Yeh, I'm still around!

Been so long since I was on here, had to go to my forum to find out how to post a new thread.

Quick rundown:

- Started remodeling my basement in sept. `08, finally finished it in Oct `09 about the same time I got laid off from my VA DOT job.

- Been busy as hell since, got laid off on a Wednesday, went to work the next day for an engineering frim on the same highway porject I had gotten laid off from the day before. It's all good, no boss at least not a direct one, and I work with a great group of guys. I'm in charge ao an $8 million bridge on a large highway project. Big stakes, fair amount of pressure, hell it's what they pay me for.

- Bike business, almost non-existent in `09, like I'm alone in that. No builds underway, least not for a while. No time, 60+ hr work week, gassed by the time Firday gets here, and the weather here has been more like the arctic than VA. Damn tired off shoveling snow, and getting ice out of my gutters, looks like after this winter I'll be doing a new sidewalk, roof, driveway and gutters. No funds left there for a bike or anything else.

Any of you guys that have wondered where I went to, give a shout. I'll start checking back in more often.

Quick Note: It would appear that Mid-USA motorcycle parts who has carried my parts for about 4 years now has handed one of my designs to BDL and is now getting the part from them, hell, they didn't even bother to change it, it's my exact part. I've talked to the owner of BDL, at least he was honest. The real culprit here is the new ownership of Mid-USA, they approached BDL with my part and asked them if they would make it for them. Yeh, you guys that know me, know which part it is they ripped. No prob, I still got'em, I can still make'em, it's just the principle of the thing.

Give a shout, later!

Cool post Barefoot!

FRANKTHECRANK, Since I haven't been on here in a while if I showed it, it would look like I was pitching them, which wouldn't be cool for me to do. Not my intent. Thanks for checking in though.

Hey Pushrod243, as far as my parts with them go. I haven't had a P.O. in a long, long time. They may have some of my speedo/tach and oil pressure brackets in stock, maybe a taglight or two, but I really don't know. As for me, I sold out all of my stock on hand a long time ago, except for a few lockplates (the ripped off part), and a few oil pressure guage mounts that didn't make it to Mid-USA. I'm pretty much out of the one-off parts bus, no time.

Thanks for checking in.

Hey Mr. Scary! Far as that goes, I never sold the Ultima part to them. I only made a few, and you were responsible for that. Couldn't have done it without you!
