    Your wheel looks great, Harry. Nice work. Fender stays have always been something of a mystery to me in that you can take them off a bike where they looked okay, then when re-installed, they don't...

    I admire Wauseon for their strict opening time. I think everyone should have the same shot at what the vendors bring for sale. I also think it is better for vendors who can get a feel for the market...
