Actually a very nice family had it, The original owner was the wife of a retired Marine Corps general, the daughter had inherited the car, and the grandson was using it. Grandson needed money for college, and they were asking 4K for it. Car only had 17000 miles on it, left a deposit, and said I’d be back in 3 weeks to pick it up, I was a Marine aviator at the time, and leaving for an exercise up at 29 Palms the next day. When I went to pick it up, they said the had numerous significantly higher offers, but kept their agreement with me.
Like I said, nice family!

Gotta love the integrity of people accustomed to a military sense of duty!

I bet there has been at least 1 barn on the island in its total history, did westerners occupy it pre-1900 at all? I don't know. (Then again, a hypothetical historical barn like that would not have survived to eventually house an MG. So I'll change my original jibe from 'barn' to 'hangar' :-)

Yup! Fortunate to deal with a Marine Generals daughter. Agreed, had to be a barn somewhere at one time, and good choice, lots of hangers on the island.

It's just a bike, CLown flagger - $1 (West Loop

Saved this bikey especially for you, CL flagger.

I'm sorry you never passed 6th grade and mommy is doing her financial best supporting you while you're still living in her basement and feeling your peach fuzz micro nads.

Life move on and help is available versus wasting it flagging others bikey's on CL.

Will personally meet you during lunch break in the West loop to discuss your mental and jealousy issues. I'm sure we'll make this bike permanently fit your fookn'arse.

I can't be certain, but at first glance it appears the frame is made from a 2x4.

Not sure if you were joking based on the respray color, but no, that's a Bike E recumbent. The angle at the tail end of the frame is the visual giveaway. Brand made a minor splash in the '90s, gone by the early '00s. So it's appropriate to this section, as it's 20-30 years old. This appears to be a copper colored re-paint. Not sure how it was priced, but it's gone, so it was probably reasonable given what it is.

Poor choice of brand name on the part of the founders, as I'm sure it caused confusion with the term "e-bike", even back then.

Ps says "Reasonable offer will be entertained", so make a "reasonable offer" and explain it was reasonable to you when you made it

Very wise to strip the paint, draws attention away from the defore hubs and the luggs.

Yours is an exceptional example!
I live down the strand in Imperial Beach, my Father flew(Navy/P3) out of North Island for years. He met a fellow aviator living in Coronado Island who was original owner of a JDM 240Z. Like many of that generation, he had kept meticulous records to include copies of his loan application and business card of the Datsun dealership sales person in Japan. I now am the steward of said car and drive it regularly on weekends - occasionally through Coronado Island. Such a lovely place with a rich military history (first Navy pilot, Navy Seal training facility...).
Finely crafted vintage car or bicycle, their respective stories can be equally fascinating.

The builder has too much time, not enough talent.

RubeRad 10-19-21 07:52 PM

How are those forks fused? Must be more than duct tape.

Also, does it come with the Packers mask?
