Have recieved a number of emails from people wondering what will become of their plans to send me a bike for paint if I don't have it yet? If we have talked about the project and you were nearing the time to send it off, I will not refuse you. I suspect in about 3 mos. I should be ready to take work again. I would guess waiting 3 mos. or so to send a project off will result in the bike being done quicker than if it sits in my shop (generating calls of "is it done yet?")for the 3 months anyway. I just need some breathing room and time to get to some stragglers that need a boost to get finished. What I really need is a mental break from the constant pressure to keep 75 frames moving through the shop.
I believe we'll all be ahead of the game if everything works out as planned.
