Wow! Mike - bet you're glad i convinced you to go check it out now!! Sweet


Ya dude. I was pretty wishy washy just looking at the WTR, I even lowballed him and I was stoked when he accepted. It was only by chance I asked him if he had anything else. Glad I did!

BTW - I was just thinking about the Homegrown...it had to have been a 94 or 95... can anyone remember what year Ruthie rode for that team? Hollister?

looks like you hit the treasure chest...on international talk like a pirate day too.. ( http://www.talklikeapirate.com/ ) If anything doesnt fit, an ASR for example, or perhaps theres some ringle bits that clash in your new ringle wardrobe, let us know :)

I didn't ask about any of the ASRs.. they're all his size (BIG). But I will! If there's anything I'm not interested in, I'll send it the way of the RB folk.

Lucky bastard. Can't see me finding a haul like that out the back of the 'Warwickshire Courier', if only becasue Jezza would get in there first :(


Was thinking something similar except the parts like that never made it here in great numbers... :(
