Started as an apprentice in a body shop in april 1969. Moved to parts 10 years later. Finally bought a repair shop and ran it for 14 years. Built two houses for a $300k tax free cap gain after selling my shop. Got a US Patent issued for a hydraulic infinitely variable in wheel drive in 2010. Rebuilt almost 200 salvage wrecked vehicles starting in 1973. Rebuilt a house 3 years ago for another cap gain. Now I pick up old motorcycles and bring them back to life as a hobby and basically ride for free. Building a tadpole trike which will eventually have my drive design in the rear wheel. Still pursuing an investor so I can get some examples on the road to show the real benefits and potential. lost count of the number of cars I have owned a long time ago, most of the rebuilds I test drove for a couple thousand miles to make sure they were debugged.

regards
Mech
