Great news. I know they are all trying for CLT and most like you do a great job compensating with your most excellent HS and it's American made!
Very proud of you!!!! :first:

How is your convertible coming along any news you can share?

Haha. No that was a joke. I doubt the replacement of MTO Sport coming in 2017 will be a CLT. I was just joking.

The canopy tooling is in progress. Shape finalized on the plug and mold in progress now with special high heat resins.

Cool video of a cool gyro

Great video Gerald!

Hey,are there any plans for a 'naked' version of the AR1 (without body)?

If nothing else, I think it would be a great sales tool for Silverlight, but I also believe there may be a market for folks who want the fit-and-finish of a 'euro-gyro' but like the idea of wind-in-ur-face open-frame in an American-built gyro.

Just a thought...

It would not be too hard to do for us. There are a few instrument panels for naked trikes that I can get my hands on easily and use for AR-1. If someone desires a naked version, I'd take an order but have not seen any interest in such a machine yet. I'd use the 22 inch turf tires for it with a different front fork system

Abid, How soon will we be able to see the new enclosure for the AR-1?

Happy Turkey day.
This is how it starts with a frame built with US made Stainless Steel being welded together in Florida.

I’m interested in an open frame (naked) gyro
