Hope it will be worth the wait.. :)

Its been a wait...and cost me around £220 to get it shipped in the states to my friend, then over to here inc VAT and PF fees....but worth it I think

It's the standard procedure.... Just to get you excited before whacking you with VAT & charges bill! And you've got to love Parcelforces £13.50 handling charges! :roll:

I dealt with a similar issue here in the states this week....Packages had a first attempted delivery of Monday and the seller sent it "signature required"...even after I told him there was no one home during the day. Fed Ex attempted delivery to an empty house three times during the week and the package was headed back to the sender when I called them and demanded they do a Saturday delivery when someone was available to sign.....yesterday finally after waiting and waiting the prize finally landed. Real classic so truly worth the wait.

Better outside pic....paint is lovely. Gave her a check up and a gentle evening outing...rides lovely...just a few tweaks, and she'll be ( literally ) as good as new.

Cheers Mate....seems I got the Klein virus bad now....

Just got to decide wether to fit the MC1 or not...and whether to have it sprayed candy red, black or leave it polished...

Think I might remove the Deathgrips and save them for a rainy day... :lol:

I have a question concerning this bike. I am looking at a very similar bike at the moment. I'm wondering whether $200 is a fair price for this bike. I'm looking at a 94 Fervor in candy red, with a rigid fork and Deore LX group on it. I've checked the stats on this bike and everything seems to be correct. So, what do you guys think, is it worth pulling the trigger at $200? I have so many unfinished bikes these days, not sure adding another one is a big deal either way.
