Subject: [CR]Pink Benotto Bar Tape Needed Fast!

Hi CR folks,

Does anyone have a package of pink Benotto bar tape they can spare for a really good cause? (I sold lots of pkgs for a song over the years - but why didn't I keep some for my ladies Pink Cinelli?)

Anyway, if anyone can come to the rescue fast, I'll trade an envelope containing $6 and a postal priority stamp for priority delivery of the tape.
