I could see myself driving upwards of 500 miles for that list, if the price was right.

Gee whiz! What a list!

If you plan to pass any on . . .

My personal list would begin with the Rally & a pair of Bullseye pulleys. After that, a pair of HF hubs and, if you don't have plans for it, the crankset. . .

sigh.

Just how far you driving? If you were closer, I'd even volunteer to drive!

I have a couple enduring memories of traveling thru central PA.

One of them is the remarkable array of pie to be found!

I'm still in on my initial dibs, yes?
