    Heya, I figured it would be a long trek, and probably not worth the trip to pick it up, but the idea of taking on a project bike intrigued me. Being able to tear something apart without worrying about when it will be back on the road is somewhat intriguing.
    Anyway, I'm going to pass for now. I've got a severe shortage of free time. I'm sorry you got stuck with someone else's crap heap!
