So how much $$ (order quantity please) will it take to get them made?

Hello Hal,
It's not an order quantity or price issue - it's simply a production capacity issue during a time of high demand on the shoulders of a small, detail orientated company trading under some very difficult circumstances.

Yes, I've received a pic of a fully assembled unit. As it's a pre-production piece and doesn't have it's laminated Cossack sticker, I won't post it just now as the catalog studio pics will be done here in the USA.

I really can't put an availability date right now as Ikon's business is booming globally this year due to so many people seeking solace in their garages and dusting off restoration projects.

I just read through some of the latest posts and I am interested. I know the timing is rough but I figured I would ask for a monthly update.

I think what we are seeing is the downside of a business that is properly sized to survive. I'm actually glad to hear that iKon is so busy that they cannot add the Cossack shock to their production just yet. That's really good news for anyone with Koni or IKon shocks because it means parts availability into the future looks very promising because IKon should survive.

Gotta see the glass as half-full. :wink:

It gives you a little insight into how long it takes from new product concept to commercial release.
