What happened to this? I have been looking all over the www.meyersmanx.com web-site, and the only thing that I see for sale are hoods, fenders, and other misc Tow'd replacement parts. I'd really like to get my hands on one of these.

i emailed meyeres manx a couple weeks ago and they tell me that the towd is on hold with no plans to build in the near future


from manx

Sorry,
> There was an attempt to bring the Tow'd back, but the mold was made too fast and shrank too much got even a replacement body. We were not making the frame either and so we simply stopped. There may be one in the distant future, but not any time soon.

Well, that's disappointing. Guess they need someone with some mold making experience...
