OK, i get the message. Thanks for the heads up. Really on the worth of the
cimatti moped? Heck i thought it was rare or something. I won't try to
bargain again, I really am sorry.
stuck shocks- I would use Marvel mystery oil bath for several days before
saying the heck with it, but then if u do get it loose, I would definitely
replace the seals. good luck.----- Original Message -----
