is this a joke? spending $1525 on a frame? i know that 3rensho's are somethin special, but you can't even enjoy the riding the frame when you've spent $1525 on it.
lets see what $1525 can really get you...
hostel 3500 yen (35.34 US) per night, 1 adult, 212.04 total US
flight to tokyo 623.00 US, travelling 3/1/06-3/8/06 nonstop from nyc
admission to kierin races, 100 yen (0.83 US)
intra travel expenses, 50.00 US
food, 200.00 US
total trip: 1086.87
leftover cash to buy a used kierin frame from a class III kierin racer $439.00
can this trip be done? i mean, can you buy a used kierin frame in japan for $439.00 US? i will seriously go to japan and pick up 2-3 frames if i could make 1500 a piece.
