The new bike exists but is not yet here.

The P juice in ammonia is a VERY dark burgundy. In water, it is candy apple red. Once dry on maple it is much less dramatic, but a beautiful color under varnish. A bit of vintage maple toner makes it truly seductive IMO. On myrtle it is significantly deeper despite the myrtle being quite light in color.

The Garden Path is completed but there is dirt to be moved. Here is a view of the shop from the back porch of the house:
