    If you knew how many people wanted them, and they preordered them you can drive the price down right? Have you looked at using kickstarter.com to get the word out?

    Any word on pricing and availability? It's not easy saving my pennies this time of year, it's burning a hole in my pocket!

    We received a firm date of the end of January from the fabricator for completion of the 2nd prototype. Once we receive it and all works/fits as planned, we'll get final pricing from the fabricator. Our hope is mid-Feb for final pricing! We'll post pics of the prototype as soon as we have it.

    Guys, We're as anxious as you! The fabricator has asked for a few days extension - you know the story! We're somewhat forgiving cause he does fantastic work! As SOON as we have something we'll post it!

    Those who have been following our progress realize we didn’t hit our 1/31 deadline for the final rack prototype. We’re meeting with the fabricator this Saturday morning to nail down the delivery date. We do know the model checks out fine and they’ve pre-processed it, a key precursor to fabrication in their CNC machines. As we’ve said before, this fabricator is top notch; they do a lot of highly specialized work for big aerospace companies. As such, smaller customers like us don’t always get top priority. The upside is the final product will be world-class quality. We fully expect this final rack prototype to be exactly that – final. To be 100% certain, we’ll have the fabricator tack weld it together initially for fit check on the AT. Yes, we’ll post pictures! After check out, we’ll return it for final welding and soda-blast finishing. More pictures, an installation video, then we're ready for production! Please be patient – it will be worth the wait!

    Looking forward to seeing finished product just ordered bike (HRC colors DCT model) & dealer says 6 to 8 weeks so it will be a bit before I can determine level of "Need" but count me as interested.

    Sweet.

    And, truth be told, I was just being a dick. I don't even have an AT yet... waiting on a shiny new 2017.
