Ch-ching!
I'm hoping to start a small project -- with zero skills & resources. Sounds like lots of expertise could be congregating here. Capitol idea, my good man!

I'm learning my way around this. I'm working on the first of what I hope to be many machined and composite products. Not really motorcycle related per say but fun.

Trying to find someone that can help put some of my ideas into a physical form for a reasonable cost.

Need some fairly high quality machine work.

Sent Baldy a PM when I started this thread, but can anybody bring it to his attention? Think a lot of us might really appreciate something like this, and hope we can make it happen.

Great idea, I can do some CAD work from where I am now (converting your napkin sketch / concept into a CAD file), machine work when I return from my current gig.

Subscribed. Gotta lotta ideas floating around in my brain for M/C and cabinet shop applications. They are frequently stymied by my lack of machining resources.

.

saw this thread, was forming my reply, before i posted, boom - appendicitis. so ive been out of the loop for 3+ weeks. i work full time for the last couple years at a local cnc shop, but for the previous 12 yrs worked full time in my own shop and still have it. 3 axis cnc knee mill, very small manual lathe. cad-cam, saws, drill presses, inspection tools, yada yada. also a 17" x 40" cnc eng lathe, but with a bad cnc control. that control will be replaced in the next 4 months or so, depending on how much $ i can make part timing on the mill. have already worked with a couple adv'ers, always willing to talk, if i believe in a project i can be flexible and willing to "donate" time, at least on the front end. send a pm, ill send a phone#, it will be my shops#. leave your#, ill likely not be there, but ill return the call, lets chat. even if its just some advice you want, mine not always the best but its free. unless youre one of the bankers, lawyers, etc that stole all the money in the last big market crash and drove me back into my new fulltime job, in that case, its $500 an hour.

I have full industrial textile capabilities. A commercial walking foot sewing machine is the center of the shop. Can make bags and luggage, repairs and alterations to riding gear, zipper replacements, vinyl or leather seat upholstery. Can do many different stitched things. I'll be producing some rugged pannier , tail, and tank bags and seat covers. Would love to team with someone getting ready to design and fabricate metal racks and innovate in ways that other producers have not, namely catering to the more popular of the obscure dualsport bikes of the 80's like XL600 and XT600 for example. Wanting to replicate seat covers more accurately than other seat cover sources online, complete with vinyl screenprinted logos of the OEM. Any textile projects send a PM. I'm in central NC and will be doing the same thing in 6 months up in Portland OR. Possible interest in setting up operations in both places.

Always interested in working with my moto-buds on any type of project. Need to PM me if I can do anything for you.
The water jet is a partner business so it is hard to give hugh discounts on that service, everything else machine-welding I can work cheap. Always willing to do confidentiality paper work if ideas are prototyping for future profits. UPS is at our door everyday and internet is always on- so distance is not a hugh problem. Located in Pagosa Springs ,Co .
Update, on my post, in a few weeks I will have all paper work in line -"T's" crossed "I's" dotted and the partner business will be all mine. Also added 55 tons of punching,small heavy plate shearing/bending,coping (iron worker) to the list

This maybe a little early, but how about a spread sheet of some sort to list the particulars in... username (so others can PM them), or if desired some other form of contact info... capabilities (machining, welding, etc.), location would be nice to know... maybe what you need is right around the corner!

...and sticky it to the top of the thread so people don't have to dig through 50 pages to find "that post I remember seeing that guys name in".

Thoughts?
