Same here and it is kind of starting to piss me off..
OK now pay the people the money, they've waited LOOONNNGGGGG ENOUGH! !!!!!!!!
Hey Mike,p.....here's what you wrote (post #391) when I wrote about the delay in producing/delivering tanks:
"Well like many things in life we don't always get what we want when we want it..."
Three weeks later, and you seem to have changed your tune *quite* a bit!
And, yeah, I am relieved that I *do* have my refund.
Hey I know what I said then and now that this thing is not going to happen, people shouldn't post that they've refunded everyones money when they haven't cause that is not true .
You have got too much time on your hands.Go start some shit somewhere else.
Everybody should have recieved their refunds, this is just a reminder that you have to login to paypal and accept the funds to finalize the refund
Hope you're all having a great start to the season!
Yes.. mine was in PayPal this morning.
Got mine after logging into paypal and accepting the refund. Thx.
Hiya Muckpee, I've been lurking on this thread for a few weeks hoping for an update on when this tank will be available. I have also sent you an e-mail. Please keep me updated on progress.
Muckpee and others
I may be ahead of things here in this statement but it looks like this tank, as offered as a final finished product for sale, will likely not come to market due to unforeseen manufacturing problems. Coupled with this is now BMW no longer offers the X Country for sale in North America further reducing future demand which will make this project even tougher to get off the ground.
To me it’s time to suggest a Plan B for all those out there who would still love to get their hands on this tank (which to me economically and aesthetically looks to be the best one out there). Frankly, I love my bike but I’m at the point of deciding whether to sell it due to the low fuel capacity and what I would like to do it (e.g. some longer touring in Canada’s North).
Here is a suggestion. Instead of trying to manufacture and sell the tank and go through all the hassle that entails why not sell detailed instructions on how to build the tank as a D.I.Y. project – e.g. drawings, suggestions for materials and where to get them, manufacturing steps for the mould etc. This could be emailed out as a pdf perhaps with links to some basic video files (with the appropriate copyrights so one guy does not buy the instructions and share them with everyone on this or other forums) and would allow you to recoup some of your costs and time to date. This project was started in your garage with the prototype so I assume someone with a little bit of hands on knowledge and elbow grease could make their own.
How does that sound?
just order the xtank from Erik, forget these guys,
If you look a little bit, you'll find some information available right here on the site. "Notmybikemodelname" has some great information posted here: ADVRider Link. I'm not sure most people realize the amount of time\effort\energy that is required just for putting together a simplistic how-to is quite complicated and time consuming. Not only that, but then you're still dealing with manufacturing\selling a product and the stuff that goes along with that. There are also a slew of books available already on doing up your own fiberglass\plastic type stuff if you're that interested in making your own. Or there are other options that have been listed out on this forum already:
Take your pick. Heck, you even get to fab up some of your own stuff with some of them if you are so inclined to.
