It has not arrived. I'm trying to ship it with out taking it apart. It should have been here but I stopped the folks. I'm trying to get a private carrier to haul it in their van. Should know something tomorrow at the latest. I saw another one for sale in NH craigslist for 495.00. I don't know that I like them that much!

Not yet. I just don't want to pay more than the bike cost to ship it. Right now it does appear that I am going to have to pay around 150.00 bucks though. Sorry for being late on the reply I've just been terribly busy. As soon as it gets here I will post up.

It made it here this past Tuesday. These bikes are pretty cool. When you put it next to a regular 26" frame you can really tell the difference in height.

I will take some but it looks just the same as the pics that were sent to me. The tires are a carlisle replacement. It has a slightly bent pedal so I will have to replace that. Everything else is original to the bike. I would like to find an original heavy duty king size now.
