But, one day, teeth are gritted and steps are taken. Today is that day and I can't quite describe how tortuous and murderously mulling the past few months have been.
I suppose there's a very simple way to look at it. You see, this project is now my *real job*, not a part-time passion. Apart from all those noble pursuits of paying homage to and reviving the spirit of the golden age of two cylinders and two wheels, this lump of metal is now livelihood.
My LLC is called Indus Valley Design in homage to the ancient 5000yr old Bronze Age civilization which included north-west India and was known for its metallurgy. Indus is also a union of "India" and "US", expressing succinctly the story of my life :-)
So, here we are.
The PROCESS page contains almost all you wanted to know but didn't know whom to ask about turning a Bullet into a Musket.
The ORDER page will give you those much maligned-yet-necessary numbers. Plus a bunch of other details. God is in the details and there certainly are plenty.
Utterly indebted to my great buddy Chumma of ACE with whom every little detail and aspect was thrashed out over great brews, righteous pizza and late night falafel joints of the sort you find only in NYC. Chumma's years of experience at ACE, running the Fireball business with Tom, the insights from which he shared with great generosity were invaluable in getting things sorted.
Go ahead, click on either page.
It only took ten years to get here.
Hope to get some inquiries coming in!
Very best wishes,
