Have been to the website several times in the past two months and nothing much happening there except the new owner is having problems with raw materials and such.
 Has anybody had an ear for what's going on? Does the owner plan to keep the brand going or has he stepped away from it? Parts and kits are becoming scarce and difficult to find.
 Hate to see another company go under like this.

You would have to get it direct from Daniel himself, but I believe he wants to get it going again when supply chain issues ease up.  He has had to return to his old job just to keep food on the table, etc.

A lot of small companies are having to shut down due to the supply chain

It looks like he’s trying to get it going again.

Hate to throw water - but his last post there was just over a year ago
He is still trying to source material for the tires themselves
Meanwhile, he has returned to his regular job

Thanks, I now see my mistake, it was posted in 2021, I thought it was 2022.

To me - the fact that he has not said he is closing the business is a good sign.  On the other hand, that he has not updated in over a year is worrisome.

But like other niche industries, he has been hit hard by supply chain issues.  Robart is searching for another raw material supplier for their tires too.
