Looks like the plan is in motion.

I think we could open up a new thread. Ill post some of my early industrial design sketches here - so all who are interesting in contributing etc please do!

The plan is to look into creating some custom "our own designed" bits and pieces: at the mo Im discusisng with B3 a conceptual thumbie system...

If we all contribute to this Im sure we could produce something really quite special...

I'll put a thread up shortly...


Looking forward to helping, by trade im a design development engineer working mainly in solidworks, and will be happy to lend time and skills to a retro-product project.

(And if any one else needs anything doing my hourly rate is cheap :p )

I dont think we should copy anything anyway. Seems silly to do that.

Maybe use it as a template to improve on - and add a modern twist perhaps with a retro nod.

Maybe start with something a little simpler than a rear mech. Possibly start with a set of cantis or something to see how it works with pooling resources...
