Hi Brandon, I would imagine that they would sell well at the price I paid, & might even turn into a nice sideline for your pop. I suggest you have him join the forum, & contact me, so I can send him my photos to use in his enterprise. He could then deal with clients directly.
  VERY HAPPY WITH MINE & Thanks Again!
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

Craig, great idea! We are currently trying to get his 87' Virago up and running which is the motivation to make a few more if there is interest. It's difficult for me to help with his bike being 12 hours apart but did what I could when I was home on leave and I sent him a clymer manual and that has helped alot.

I hate to say it, I don't even think my dad would know his way around the forum, haha. I'll have to set him up a profile and see if he ever logs on. If you'd like his email feel free to PM me and I can give it to you, I'm sure he would love to see some pictures. I talked to him on the phone today and told him the "master machinist" line and he just laughed and said "after more than 30 years I'd hope so". He's been doing this work ever since he graduated from high school.
We are both glad that you are happy Craig.

I'm interested, but without digging through the previous 60+ posts... what was the price?

Or perhaps more appropriately, what would the price be for one from a second run?
