bruce,

Send me a Flying Scot. I'd love to see one and take her out for a spin. I'll take anything between 19 1/2" c-t to 21" c-t. You can even just send the frame, I'll stick the parts on it. I'm not picky about the color, but I've got a lot of blue bikes, so maybe something in a nice traditional BRG. My address is shown below, when should I start checking my post?

Brian Baylis 3920 Quarry Rd. La Mesa, CA 91941 USA

Thanks!
