    Talked with the company formerly known as Kayline in the last couple of days and they plan to start making tops in 6-8 weeks! Wahooo!
    He said there will be some changes, not sure what all yet since it's just getting going, but they are coming back. Probably limited color selection, but black and white, and maybe a brown to start with, and that's about all we know.

    Important thing is they're coming back! We'll be keeping in touch for sure.

    Hopefully they build them more like Can-Back tops or towards their old designs. I dont like the fast track model... Just my opinion though!

    Cool, when they get up and running I will talk to them about dealership, I wonder if the pricing will go up or not.

    yehhhhhhoooooooooo------- oh wait, i just realized i had one, a fast track, and it SUCKED!!! WHAT A LOW QUALITY P.O.S. it would maby last 2 seasons if i would of kept it and i take care of my stuff, $500+ is too much to spend for that quality if you ask me but maybe the "new" manufactures will make a better product.

    I agree, thats why I think 995.00 for a Can-Back all-year long for quite a few years (snow/rain/etc) is a better deal than 575. or so for a Kayline that will only last two.

    Hey Steve,
    Have you heard anything from Can-Back on the first gen tops. I was just curious if they were having any luck with it or getting closer to releasing it. Thanks.

    See Ya,
    Keith

    I talked to Can-Back today, they said the they had the frame done and they would do the top when it came back from an engine install.
