Wow. All of this is rather overwhelming. I'm beginning to believe this find of mine is some sort of divine gift. Brian, it will ride better than the International? I should think about this. I lusted after the International since I was in 10th grade, but I should be cautious with sentimentality.

I'll fix up the Volpe and see how it rides. photojon, your description sounds a lot like the Cross Check rode. In case you missed the story, I made a very special build out of it, and just as I was about finished, it got stolen. Except I believe the Volpe will be lighter. As intelligent as the Cross Check is as a design, it's too heavy.

Thanks, folks!
