    "Museum piece"

    I would love to have the money and the time to drive the three hours and go pick this up and bring it home and then replace the 30-year old tires and go thru the 30-year old seals and gaskets and so forth and then . . . ride it.

    It's going to be one of "the ones that got away."

    Yeah, that's really nice. I have seen a bunch of them for sale on craigslist & fleabay after almost never, ever seeing them at all. Very cool bikes.

    Very Nice.
    Not on my list, though.

    I have two TLR's my "worst" one is a 400 miler almost identical to the listing and from the same town weird

    I found another with 18 miles in Georgia so thats probably my keeper for display I'll never ride it

    They actually do have a very nice ride quality although not for marathons with that seat

    Eastern Oregon is not too hot not too cold I bet the bike really doesn't need anything

    I love it when people say "all the gaskets are probably dried up" compared to the wet gaskets we all know and love

    Unfortunately, due to the low miles, this bike can not be registered for the street in California.

    wow that one is really nice too the trick is if there is no boot wear on the red frames they tend to rub off paint very fast for some reason and both bikes seem to have no boot wear which is unusual even with such low miles

    Theres a guy in Colorado who sold off a 30 bike collection on ebay the past few years and I've seen him selling some this year as well
