    I think it's the updated version of the R15, Rorty would have to clarify that though. Hoping to see someone build one of these soon.

    I think your spot on bug......it looks like he had to redesign the rear hub to get away from the Proto-die parts.....he must have had a exclusive arrangement with proto-die for the R15 parts......hence the R21! Same buggy but different parts supplier.

    I have bought the R15 plans and have not tried to source the uprights yet just made the ferules, bushes and a-arm mounts.
    Will the R15 still be catered for by protodie?
    I see the R15 has been taken of the site and is only 8 months old, just wondering if the R15 plan owners are going to be looked after or not?

    My suggestion is to email Rorty......I'm sure it will update your plans for you to the new version.

    Was protodie not making the needed parts available?

    Is that necessary? Kludge is a small guy beginning a small business. Let's keep it constuctive . . .
