Gee, somebody got something interesting to build! Maybe you'll get lucky and find a four rider tandem. I had one of those pass me on a bike trail in Ohio one day. Talk about being dropped like a bad transmission!

A couple more pictures here:
I have to finish my other three projects before working on the Jack Taylor - wife's orders :)
I rode the GT for the first time yesterday, needs front fender mounted, and a couple of minor adjustments - which will leave two projects.
One of the chain rings on the T50 got bent while we were on vacation - the last leg we had a LOT of stuff in the van, and had to do major diss-assembly of it to get it into the van. Replacement part due this week. - not on my list of projects.
The NEXT (cheap loaner) will be finished next week - new RD, chain and brake noodles - which will leave one project.
The Miyata 310 is getting new wheels - have the rims, hubs and most of the spokes. I also believe that I have all the other parts I need to complete the build.
So if all goes well, I will be able to start some serious work on the Jack Taylor in August.

And as usually, all did not go per plan, and tomorrow I get on a UAL 747-400 to HKG....realistically nothing will happen until next year.
