Badger aka Chris Laws is very much alive well and in bizness. You can also contact him via facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Badge...ks/57403838691

Chris delivered my top a couple of weeks ago, so he's going strong. In my experience the best way to get in touch with him is via phone, but don't leave a message. Just call from time to time and try to catch him when he's got a free moment.

It's just him now. He had to let all his people go.

Top delivery?

Geoellis, When did you order your top?

Just wondering how far out his delivery schedule is?

I know you didn't ask me but...

I think it sort of depends on your needs and requirements. Complex orders = more time.

He is making a custom grey Badger II for me and did not have the material in stock. He had to source it and have it delivered. I also told him that I'm not in a rush and do not mind waiting if he had emergency orders, etc. to fill. I ordered mine in March and hope to see it this month.

He has been great to talk with and responsive to my calls. I personally could not have purchased anything but a Badger but I understand why the time commitment may turn off others.

Hope this helped.
