Apparently Highgate are 'changing direction'. Anyone know where they're going?

|01/03/2004 13:33:34||Tom||True enough, so let's put this to rest forever.|
Yes the moulds & rights were offered to the Club and yes to date we've declined the offer. The basis being the limited market (even if you consider it globally) for what may remain expensive wheels (it's not like they're going on a £20-30K new car...) meant we were not prepared to risk Club funds on the venture.
But let's try to be a bit scientific here. If the wheels were to be made available for, say £500 a set (which is way below the Highgate price) who would buy a set? Please post your "order" here as a gauge of the market.
