Yes, that is a '93 Rascal. I bought one recently and it arrived last night. I haven't even ridden it yet. Same thing with mine, stored most of it's life. A paint chip or two, but no biggie. ...

I'm helping out Alancw3 with his posting. I resized the pics and posted them since he was having trouble with it.

I doubt the buyers of this are fools. They might have priorities different than you, but I don't think they are 'fools'. It all goes back to how bad do you want something? I just spent $1500 for a...

I might be able to do ya one better. When I was 12 or so and not paying attention, I ran into a parked car on a flat, level street.

I thought about bidding for this one, but I think it's stretched out a little long for me. The 93 had a longer top tube than, say a 1990 did, and with the 150 mm. stem I don't think it would suit...
