No problem. Our previous administration did a good job of reinvigorating the hatred born from our civil war. We are at each others throats in America. Hate every bit of it. Why can't we all just get along?
My last political post also.

Bush Jr. said "I'm going to start something that cannot be undone."
I believe he meant 2 things and needed to be done in order for most effectivness.
1. The PC movement.
2. Dividing of America.

And now, more words from this threads title.
My "gift" is still working well PEP. Tho I need to change engine guards, I'll be trying to do fine adjustment on it so 4th slips into gear better.
BTW: After installing it, 2nd gear started to act like 4th gear.
Those who don't know, early 1500 had a 4th gear issue. Mine showed up around 110K but through EZ shifting it's now lasted 130K & still reasonably shifting well.

I know many of you are looking for the pivot assy. I must apologize for the lack of availability. Without going into much detail, A seller out of the country who makes his living copying intellectual property started making an inferior copy without the bushing. He forced me out, my materials, and production costs are obviously higher. It's hard to compete with someone in a country outside America who has their own CNC machine. I made a deal with the machinist to run off another 1000+ sets. After inspection and completion of 100 sets these will once again be listed for sale. I expect a maximum release date of 5/24/2021.

Thanks for the update.
It is really tough to beat the a-holes that steal intellectual property and wreak havoc. Lots of good companies have been steamrolled by them.

I am happy to say I have one of your originals on my bike and it works flawlessly.
Good luck on the re-start of a great product.

Same here Cliff. I bought one from you last year and love it. Really slick shifting now. I'm sorry for your troubles with the rip-off artists stealing your idea and causing you to lose business.

I would much rather have the original over any inferior part.
Cannot wait for them to be made available again. This will save my 1500 from never seeing the road again.
Would really like to get 200k out of it. Sitting at 134k now

I looked at that guys advertisement last week, and it is obvious that the quality is not there.

so many good inventors and manufacturers have been run out of business by the copy cats who circumvent the patents and don't care, the chinese are the worst of the lot, but I think your copy cat is in the Ukraine?

Glad you decided to make more.
When I was looking for mine, I saw the copy on e-bay and just did not look as good.
I got one of yours and love it.

Almost makes me want to buy one more to have "just in case".

Belarus, but close enough. The value of life over there has little value, nevermind the morality of intellectual property theft. I could have had these made in China for considerably less, but wanted control of the quality, and to keep the money in America. I am one poed guy right now with everything that is going on. I was there in DC the 6th, and Dec12. Screw China! Once the drawing makes it to the Chinese CNC machines, no telling how many they will run off. China has hangar size buildings running hundreds of CNC machines.

I would much rather pay for quality over quantity any day. Make your braces, word of mouth will put it out where to get the "real" part.

They are sold out pretty much everywhere right now. While I was out riding the other night I stopped by Gary's place (owner of Cyclemax) and he told me that peppilepew has a new batch of them coming from the CNC shop very soon, and they should be available to purchase again shortly thereafter.
