For good or bad I seldom check the OP, but dive right in when there's a post that's current. In the end it doesn't matter really. Any and all comments we've made still stand I think. Of course it is always nice when the OP's come back to tell us what happened, did they sell it? Did they keep it? How much did it bring in? Some do and when they do we should thank them as it is a good barometer to judge by. Otherwise all we have is guesses and suppositions which aren't worth much really.

Wow. All these years later and, I'm still responding to this blog. It's an absolutely beautiful bike. I wouldn't sell it for less than $500. And, would hold out for more.

I'd also rather not have the bearings disassembled and redone by a non-professional.
I'd rather a non-professional service all of my bikes.
