    Re: End Of An Era

    Thanx, Steve. You're exactly right, I've got the price so low now, a guy would be hard pressed to even BUILD one for that much, but the sad fact is that I HAVE to sell it, REGARDLESS, cuz I cant...

    BINGO, Mr Idaho!

    Yep, I think I got about 7 of 'em at the time. Got a good deal for a couple reasons. Firstly, I'd already purchased a new tadpole trike from them,

    Re: Unicycle question

    Did you actually make a plexiglass top for that, too?

    I can still occasionally contribute in some small way! :)
