Thanks

I appreciate you offering up these 10 sets. I think they are the coolest means to mount up additional lights on the bikes. Thanks for posting photos of my bikes.

I now have a spare set in the parts drawer in the event I damage one or find another bike to mount them on.

Darrell

Very interesting.... Ever since I announced I was out, I had 3 interested requests in 24 hours... Let me remind everyone that it took about 8 months to sell 10! I admit I did not conduct much (any?) marketing and most of the sales came through Fleabay. (learned a lesson with the Ebay 10% fees and all other "nibble" side fees!... )

I have way too much on my plate these days. Maybe find a window early next year? In the meantime, I'll continue to monitor this thread.

For those of you who bought a set, hope you can appreciate the quality of the finish as we did not cut corners!

Thanks everyone, O-livier

Sounds good. I now count 2-3 interested. Please keep posting here if you have an irresistible urge to add this to your GS

Note taken. As mentioned, I am hoping to get a clear window this coming Jan/February. Most likely go for another 10 sets if the CNC shop has time/interest. More news on this project soon...

Hello all,
I will speak to the CNC shop owner sometimes next week and gauge his interest/ workload. I am confident he will accept but timing is key. If he has little work, no problem. If not, we may have to delay a bit more... Regards, Olivier

Guys,
I owe you an apology for the lack of news... I have reached out to my CNC Pro and discussed prices for another small batch (10 sets)... he is still way up there in costs and therefore this effort is really not sustainable... Only way to lower our "production" cost would be to go cast aluminum / large volume... In the meantime : lots of manual handling and individual CNC cutting for each piece is keeping the cost high...

If his business slows down, I may be able to twist his arm. I see him every week end so will continue to test the waters. Sorry about this...
