    Not yet...spoke with Mark today and he said it should be done this week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. After completion, it still needs to be shipped and Sector111 needs to do their thing. It's probably going to be a few weeks before I get it...

    When brammo was making them they had the assembly part down to about 7 hours. So it may be a lot closer than you think

    Yeah, well once they had the frame done and all the parts. The assembly line steps took like 7 hours as they got more efficient (I think I remember the 7 hour quote correctly)

    From the back to the front of this line the car went from simple frame to mostly completed

    So based on that calculation....... Drum roll.......
    The frame takes around 480 hours to finish and the rest of the car 7 hours!!!!! Gotta love that. My 90 day count down timer on the phone is almost half way there.

    We were tracking for a while the Brammo assembly. Most were 180-200 days from order and a month from welding to completion. Here is one of the earlier ones that wast that fast on the assembly

    Welding: 12/29/06 - Powder Coating: 1/4/07 - Fabrication: 1/6/07 - Assembly Que: 1/9/07 - Assembly: 1/30/07, completion 2/14/07. I bet most of that 2 weeks in assembly was waiting for parts

    But the straight assembly is pretty fast. I bet I could assembly an entire Atom myself with all the parts ready on a weekend. When I was pulling my engine to try and fit another transmission I would have the engine in and out of the car 10 times one one day with full engine install and up and running in 1/2 a day.
