Steven, Another listee posted some links to this bike, I think, but they didn't work for me. Can you or anybody post pics of the frame, build, jigging, and such? A few years back, Grant Petersen asked me about my interest in making one, I think he said he could get the parts and jigs, but I guess I said I wouldn't know what to charge as I wasn't familiar enough with the design.
