Hi I am a new member with a new bike arriving today from the states.
Few clues.
1994 new in box.
Current/previous owner in Wichita USA
Bike was found recently in basement of local bike shop.

The sharp eyed could find the story behind the bike with some digging on line.

I will be opining the box with a beer tonight (NZ time) and posting pic's over the next few days.

This one is well worth watching. :D :P :P

Today was the longest working day of my life!!!
I left at 8am this morning and at 10:30 my wife texted me a picture of a box which had arrived a few minutes earlier.
I had promised my customer I would have the job finished today as they are moving into their new home tomorrow (I am a decorator).
So I was stuck at work until 830 papering couple of bedrooms and some feature walls desperately trying to speed up without compromising quality.
It was torture!
Anyway the box is now open and the contents sitting in my lounge as I type.
I will have a crack at some photos and see how we go.
HK-II whats happening on that date fella?
