hmm, obviously the exchange rate is in our favour (go back to 1.91 damn you!).
for $1500 you can have a custom built (obs by sycip) custom sized & more importantly v.priccey custom painted. I know plenty of UK builders are either competitive or even cheaper than this.. but as yet I havent seen many, if any? that can equal the paint...
& lets face it, most original goats make the bigher Â£Â£ for the paint:
for anyone that needs reminding
personally I'd happily find a beat up old mtn goat (hopefully cheaper!) then send it back to russ in the US for a brand new "california yuppie" paint job. then hang it on a wall! hahaha, Yup thats how much I love the paint. I'd be gutted to have a cable rub & remove a palm tree from the "yuppie" paint job
