the pooly suspension was thrown in gratis ;-}

it needs some attention (mostlyt maintenance), but it's pretty much what I was looking for -- a well worn but nicely functioning Killer . . . . .

Next summer, the adventure will be Twits on the TWAT . . . . .

05 is exactly right! good eye!

I get it now.  You see a peer ride a shitty 650 bike to a coffee meet and you were gleaning with envy from the inside.  'I need to slum it too...'
