What do you think? Thanks.

Obviously go look at it, and at least start it - but it looks good. (Some really helpful info there, I know. You're welcome.)

Call Bill at Balance Trials (720-207-7715). He's a Beta dealer in Westminster - he might have seen the bike before. If you ever need work/parts on/for it, he's your guy.
