I emailed him last month also and he replied pretty quick. Then I replied to his email and he never replied back after that.

I thought there was a thread about him selling everything associated with his website. There also seems to be a problem with obtaining all the plate parts. There was a supplier of them when Rorty stopped giving out DXF files to have them cut yourself. I have the Shotgun plans and have been about 70% done now for 2 years, kids take way too much time. I like the car and hope to get it finished some day. At this point I'd stay away from the plans until the plate work and rumors about the website sale go away.

Ok thanks dune I said in my email that I wanted the DXF files it will for sure be a condition of my purchase..but he still hasn't responded and I will not buy them without being able to contact him first. Ill give it till the end of the week and then buy someone else's plans

You can still make the buggy with the plans right? Just no DXF supplied.

Someone else on here was trying to setup as a supplier for the cut parts but I forget who.

I have the "old" plans, from back when the dxf's were supplied, and had my parts cut locally. Unless major changes were made to the plans and complete drawings were included, then no, you could not build the buggy from the plans.

I remember the switch over happening a few years ago, and it was a board member that was identified as the sole supplier of the plate work.

I haven't really been keeping up with what is happening with the plans, so my information is most likely out of date.

Hi Dromas

I'm the new owner of Rorty. I've only just taken over and we're in the process of rebuilding the website. A holding page and email will be up today.
Happy to answer any questions you have. Bob is in the background too for technical help.

We're also working on the supply of laser cut and machined parts. Details to be sorted and will be on the new site. I've also posted in a couple of other spots which I would link you to if I knew how[smilie=sign_help.g:

Hey Crisco
Welcome to the site ,,all the best with the new venture ,,i look forward to seeing it grow .
Are you /have you /will you be building a Rorty for yourself and do you intend to fab or are you continuing with just the plan side of things ?

Hi Talon
I've been into clubman road cars until recently. I will be building an R21 Solo to start with - for show and racing. It will have the power plant from the road car in the garage which is a ZX12R with a supercharger and some other go fast bits. Probably over the top but...

We will be doing fabrication, working from parts supply up to fully built. It will take a bit of time to get established and there is a bit to work out. Once the new website is up it will have more details including the R21 plans and parts for sale.

Looking forward to getting dirty!
