"Hi. I am sending a picture of my son Ray Schwartz on our latest bike, the Black Lightning. It is based on the Meridian, but lower.

He wanted the twin hand shifters so that the handlebars would be clear for the throttle of the next improvement, an electric motor. This has been a great hobby shared by my son, my best friend, and I. We can't wait to start the next one!

Thanks, Rob Schwartz"

Good on you guys.
It has been mentioned several times by others in this forum how good it would be to have a partner to build with.
When that partnership is shared with a loved one it is most special. I too have had the opportunity to build two bikes with my son and he has built 2 more with his son. Like you, it's been a grand experience for the three of us.
Life is short, make it special.
