It's been quite a while, but I've driven close to that place on several occasions. If I ever go that way again I'll stop and take some pictures! It's 144 miles from my door

thanks for posting

If you really want those pictures I could propably do that for you

I dont think the building is still for sale, its not on the Dickman website. You do a building for all your new tube frames right

Hey, isn't Port Washington the place where the ferry comes in that runs between Michigan and Wisconsin? Maybe you could take your Bolens across the lake! :smile1:
