Well ... Better late than never!

A lot of gearbox work has been going on with needle roller high gear conversions by Roger and Eddie Shermer.
Eddie has made several of the clutch release mechanisms also.. and very nice they are too!
Eddie has been building new ratios into boxes according to owners desires and a full inspection and report is available for gearboxes is offered. Email us here if you are interested in this service: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will get more stuff up soon!
