working a deal out here

ok, the deal is all but sealed. i'll be picking up the trade wind as soon as we get back from england, mid october, prob. i wanted to take her home today, but it was already after 3:00 and the rust on the front part of the frame has me pretty concerned. the actual frame rails are rusted through on both diagonal pieces, right ahead of the weight distributing mount. one has a perforation big enough to slide 2 quarters through (stacked), and the other side has a hole maybe the size of a small acorn. i'm hoping this can be easily fixed. the current owner says he's going to try to talk to a welder up there and see if he can patch it for my trip back to atlanta. once it's here, it might be worth having new metal welded in, i really don't know what's best.

my wife was sold on the skins. if only our little 59 was this clean... i never would have had the pleasure of reskinning the whole darn thing! ha!

forgot to post this. i ended up passing on the 60 tradewind. if anyone's interested, i can get them a phone number. it's a shame to see it just sit there, but i ended up tackling a globe trotter instead.
