    One of these days you're going to figure out that I'm not really Paul Hornung.

    If my count is right- we're at $400-

    We need $25 more.

    Jim said if shipping is more than $25, he will cover the amount over that.

    I'll start drafting an email to Skip.

    I'll post it here...

    I want to be VERY careful about this.

    Not that "my way" is the only way to do this, but I want this to be a gift from Bike Forums C&V, not a random bunch of unassociated people.
