    Planets are aligned, pulled the trigger...

    In an earlier post I was castigating myself for feeling bad about my "bike money" potentially headed toward a wedding gift for my son and his soon to be bride. Well, what a turn around in a week's time. I've collected and played guitars for years and decided to sell off a few, but wouldn't do so unless I got a fair price and the instrument went to a player. Hence, I haven't reduced the inventory at all. Yesterday I got and accepted an offer on an instrument that allowed me to put a down payment on an Indy Fab Ti Crown Jewel. I go in tomorrow morning for the measurements. I'm almost giddy with excitement.

    Karma stepped in! You were willing to sacrifice for your son and that brought you good fortune! Cheers!

    I think you'll like the bike. Do your best to communicate to IF the type of ride you are looking for. They can make any kind of bike ride any which way.

    It's true fortune to be able to use one collection to expand another, both so enjoyable! Now you don't have to feel either hard done by, nor a grinch. A bespoke bike, titanium no less! WooHoo

    Where there's a will, there's a way.
    Custom IF Crown Jewel is definately at the top of the pecking order.

    Might as well sell off your other bikes. Once u ride the IF, the others will collect dust. Congraulations.
