Group -- two topics... UK shipping -- I sent a 10 pound (weight, not currency) box to England the first part of November, and they just received same... the delay is working both ways.
Sekai -- In the late 70's, I was fondling a Sekai 2700 at the LBS, didn't want or need it -- just looking at it. The young man behind the counter said "give me $75, and it's yours". I, of course, bought it. Stopped in the shoppe a few days later, and the owner was there -- I requested the young man, and was informed that he had been fired. Moral to the story (Dale), if you ever fire someone, don't let them work the remainder of the day -- they might offer folks some real deals!
I gave the bike to a friend, who later gave me his '63 Porsche Cabriolet.... not a bad deal. :-)
