After I posted a few months back about the possible production of new Henderson KL cylinders, I've had individuals contact me asking the status of that project. We have assembled a team of individuals who are moving foward with the project. The project will be led by Byrne Bramwell. Byrne is an engineer by trade who started his career working for Pratt and Whitney. Clyde Crouch will work with Byrne. Both are very good business men as well as Henderson enthusiasts. I've worked for both of these men and I will attest to their character. They are going to hunt down and get competitive quotes from north american foundaries and pattern makers. Dale Stoner will perform the machining operations at his machine shop. I will transfer some of the tooling that I have at my shop to Dale's at Oley this year. Dale is one of the most impressive tool and die people I have ever met. All 3 of these individuals have exactly what we need in the areas of business, engineering and tool making to make this project successful. There are a number of people who have contacted me. We have 8 sets of cylinders spoken for at this time. We want to get together as a group at Oley. Dale has already done the CAD file and is open to sharing the progress that has been made to date. We would like to use this forum to welcome anyone who is interested in the purchase of a set of cylinders. We will post a time for the meeting at Oley soon. I am removing myself from the direct sale of these cylinders infact I am going to purchase a set for my own bike from the team heading up the project Thank you for your consideration.
