Just found out that I have a cousin in Romania that I didn't know I had who's into bikes but doesn't have a burly enough bike for a proper urban session, therefore he's building this frame up.

Look over the family tree again very carefully if he later tells you he has this huge cashier's check that he can't cash over there but will send to you and you can keep the remainder if you cash it for him and just send back $4K.
