    You have to respect that.
    Highest congratulations and best wishes for you, your mentor and the business. I am amazed at that Arvon in the initial post - simply incredible. I have a few questions on rack making, but will PM those....

    Again, congratulations and best wishes!
    I'm planning on de-branding my 23" Schwinn High Plains updating components and powder-coating the frame - metamorphosizing it into the ULTIMATE TOURING MACHINE!!!

    You make a good point.
