Very impressive work! Someone has some skills on the tube as well as the mill. The areas you have identified to upgrade are certainly needing attention. The loads imposed onto the hand guards during a crash are formidable. I assume you have tested your solutions & found them to be improvements or you would not be proceeding with production.
Have you determined pricing yet?
All this is familiar in a sense since I too have spent a considerable amount of time developing new products since retiring from the aerospace world. Developing a product that is buildable for the right price to sell to the public is tricky. Particularly when they may not know why it is better.
And the advantages of patents....that is another story. Spoken bay a man who has several patents.
Anyway, my compliments.
My website...globetrottin.com...Not for business but more for sympathy.
Keep up the good work.
