Subject: [CR]<PRIOR> Stamp, for Amir

Amir, I'm gonna give you that <Prior> stamp back when you return me that book I lent you on how to convinvingly paint time-faded RH logos, but I still need it, I got about 50 super champ red labels to Atom hub wheel sets in the garden which need cosmetic improvement and mild pedigree enhancement.

Somebody pointed out to me that the hubs aren't Priors, but early Campy, the prior meant to read "A-Prior-A to the-a one-a comes-a next-a".

This will likely get me kicked for off- topic, but it reminds of of when Honda came out with a Mammoth 4 cylinder roadster and called it "Big One" at the Bologne show. The boys from Cagiva-Ducati had the time of their life walking over to the Honda stand and saying sotto voce "Pssst, I gotta big one too, you wanna come see it ?". The name of that bike got changed for some markets.

ps: How come nobody noticed the 40's Tank B 4 speed freewheel on the Prior ?

You ever see one of them teen horror movies? ("Rocky" comes to my mind, but hey, that's me.)

In the movie version, some innocents wander into someone's living room (usually in a distant location) unaware of the horrors that lie within. They are first courted and flattered ... in an effort to make them feel welcome. Often they are feasted to the point of exhaustion. Then, when night comes, strange things begin to happen.

Typically, one is seduced into doing something they will soon regret (but, oh, what wonderful seductions). Someone inevitably feels cheated and arguments ensue. When all are preoccupied with arguments, BOOM ....

You know the rest.

After a few years on this list, you'll see the scenario played out over and over again. I say "enjoy the show" and gimme back my <PRIOR> stamp.
