Introducing the Sparck Moto FB-11

Currently sitting on a couple of prototypes that can do to someone if they really want one badly. They'd need to source some enclosures, however, as these are just the bare boards.

We're likely going to make a couple of more changes before we go to production. It seems each new prototype reveals a couple of more things that would be good to change.

Hopefully these will (finally) be ready mid-to-late Autumn, but then I'll need to save up enough for production costs.

Are you still doing production and sourcing parts within USA?
Design is definitely being done in the USA and I'm currently on the fence about the production. I'm going to investigate a few options and figure it out.

Having been in the electronics manufacturing all my career, (over 40 years), I suggest you have a oupleof turn key contract assembly houses quote the building for you. (Heck I even had my own company for some years.)
May I suggest that you give these guys a call? http://www.case-assembly.com/
Ask for Steve Markos and tell him that I pointed you in their direction.

Keep posted please.

Ps. Did you see the article on the Bridgestone on this months issue of Classic Motorcycles?

I did not. I don't see too much in the way of paper print these days. What was the gist?

Just a nice article and pretty cool to have the bike featured on an a national magazine. I am an old guy that still reads print.)
If you want a copy of the magazine, I will gladly send it to you.

OK... currently speaking with the manufacturer who handles our flasher relays and R/Rs.

Initial order cost is going to be about $9,000 USD, excluding the cases, which I am still trying to source independently. Cost with the custom enclosures would have made initial costs $37,000. o_O

I might try to see if I can find someone local to handle the enclosures as Oregon has a fair number of plastic injection molding specialists.

Yup. Had a prototype made by my Chinese manufacturer and there was definitely something lost in translation.

Working with JustinLonghorn right now on a new layout.

Having been in the electronics industry for over 25 years, I can say that I know the industry well. I have been dealing with manufacturing in the Far East since the early '80s.
That being said, may I suggest that you reach out to Steve Markos at CASE Assembly Inc., http://www.case-assembly.com/.
Tell Steve that I recommended them to you. You may be surprised at the cost of the turn key cost. They are quite competitive.
Good luck!
