$1675 for a complete rig including racks and LX group seems pretty reasonable. I'd love to see one and try one out, but I'm not likely to see any around these parts.

I can ship directly from my shop to anywhere in the world, if there is no shop nearby.

I would be interested in knowing what's in the $800 LX build group mentioned on the website (maybe it's there but I missed it).

Thanks for the detail!

Looks like a fair deal to me, especially with racks included.

I've wanted a Bruce Gordon tourer for many, many years. Unfortunately, I've never had the money. Maybe someday. Thanks for the info, Bruce.
