First post of the new blog

If you've clicked around, you've seen this site is still a work-in-progress.  Over the next weeks much of the old site info will be uploaded here, organized within the blog section.  As well as very regular new posts of stuff that is going on in the shop.  For example - I know of two Seeley-framed bikes that are on the benches now: One, a F750 Racer based on a Nourish Racing 8-Valve motor, and the other,  a 1007cc Steve Maney Supercharged(!) Commando street fighter.  Stay tuned for more.
