What have I promised you?

I know this is silly, but I promised a few people to look through my stash of bike parts when I got here, to our place in the country. I didn't take notes. I'm only here for a few more hours, so I hope the affected people will see this post and reply in time.

I believe you promised me a 50th anniversary campy group and Dura Ace 10mm pitch track bits.

Oh yeah, the old Campagnolo Gran Turismo that I was going to continue my experiments with.

Been busy though, so no worries.

I rode to the Goodwill store here four times, hourly, tonight, the last three times I watched as a whole row of Christmas-donation road bikes made it's way, from outside, to the back room, toward the store's showroom floor.
I'm promised they will be priced by opening time tomorrow, so likely I will have a multi-bike project on my hands with the Norco, the Ironman TG, the Mt. Whitney and the Motobecane, among others.

And if you can find the new Cinelli Volare saddle, I'll settle for that.

@dddd, oops. I forgot about you and passed that derailleur on to @aixaix. He might have kept it for no particular reason and might be willing to pass it on to you.

Yes, Tom, I still have it and would be happy to send it on to tetra d. Shipping should cost no more than $150 or so...



dddd, email your address to me at euromeccanicany@yahoo.com and I'll tie it to a pallet and stick it on a truck heading west. Tom'll be happy to pay the freight.
