Box will ship out today. Been working a modified schedule that doesn't allow me to get to the post office, but it looks like my wife can get it over there this afternoon. In the meantime here's my take:

Had a co-worker at the dump give me one. He passed me every day in his truck and thought I was out of my mind for riding at 4 in the morning. It has flashing led's in the stripes.

Package to me weighed 19.33# or 8.76 kg.

Photos of cover and contents, as received:







Photo of my "take":



Posted out this AM for delivery to wschruba "probably tomorrow".

I filled the box to the point that I had difficulty with the "close packing" exercise. Don't know the weight, but I put some heavy stuff in it (and some light stuff).

Bo'C rec'd:



*insert picture of box lid here*

and my take:



Slowly collecting parts to restore my Serotta to something spiritually in keeping with its 'old' 1" headset/downtube brazes. Bottle generator looks interesting, but perhaps non functional? I guess I'll know when I get zapped--the missus' bike just happens to have a generator tab on it. And you can never have too many toe straps

Once time on the last series I believe it topped the scales leaving my place at 27-ish pounds. I guess if we're putting NR derailleurs in the box it's going to be lighter.
