This project as a production run will only go ahead if we have good reservations. This is because to even get to the pilot model stage costs in upwards of $35000. This is because of the following factors
- research and design
- lost wax brass patterns (the most expensive single cost)
- press tools
- wheels and gearbox (gearboxes are custom made CNC machined)
If that does not happen, these will be made as a custom build batch of 10-15 models and the price will reflect this.
The projected production run price is $5000.
Design work is done and depending on the feedback we can decide when to make the pilot sample.
Both standard Baker valve gear and Caprotti poppet-valve gear and redesignated S-2a as fitted to #5500
