    My insurance is great, it's the driver at fault l's insurance giving issues. Which is my point; it's worth $10 a day to avoid that hassle, so in that regard, it's not redundant. It's an easy out option.

    Good grab on the bike. The Brooks saddle alone is sweet.

    Whoever started the public wishlists, great idea.

    To whomever drew my name:

    Like most said, don't stress about it. Don't kill yourself with the international shipping, anything small will do. I wear ties and pocket squares most days and they're often plentiful. If you're sending a tie, don't worry about the brand. Interesting wools are always great. Something I don't find here would be Pendleton wool ties. I also like silk knits and again, brand isn't important. I have piles of wool knits, so you could actually ask me if you need one!

    My sizes are updated, jackets are all short (either specified or naturally short), but they are bulky to ship. Last year, I received some great books via Amazon. I loved them.

    I also like old advertisements, photos, and maps. If you get desperate, there is a seller on Etsy (from Bulgaria, I believe), that sells old clothing ads on the cheap.

    If all else fails, baby stuff would be appropriate, anything light and easy to send. Truly though, I enjoy finding stuff more than getting it and an advanced "thanks" for putting in the time and effort!

    Well i would have paid 75 just for that head badge alone.i mean its all relative,i think its just a rebadged Raleigh.but i like it.think of it as a piece of vintage bespoke clothing,i could care less but u love it.same with bikes ,someone will want this.but i would keep it and ride it because i can appreciate it.
    Idont see why u couldnt get 150 to 200 in the spring.
    Hell ill give u 50 for that badge right now.
