|Flying Merkel Boardtracker|
There is only a landing page at BTRbuilder.com, but he does have an email address, and says he has boardtracker parts and plans available. The Facebook page, BTRbuilder, is apparently gone... I can't get to it.
|Completed Merkel Tribute Bike from BTRbuilder|
Update 8/25: I got a reply from Terry, the designer and builder at BTRbuilder. Here it is:
I do have parts and full scale printed templates of the Merkel I built but I haven't decided if I'm going to put together a full set of plans yet. I'm still trying to see where the interest is and for the most part it seems that people want help on building there own idea of a boardtracker and don't necessarily want to build the same bike I did. I'm currently building a complete bike for a guy that saw the Merkel but wanted something different. My main goal right now is just putting myself out there to help people with whatever they want to build. Sometimes it's me building something for them and sometimes it's just me giving advice to help them do it themselves.
You can contact him at the email address given above, firstname.lastname@example.org. He has also sent me links to pics of two other projects, and I will upload a couple of pics of them in separate posts.
