Been wanting this one for more than a doz. yrs & finally have it. This is my 3rd s. wheel & the finest by far. The craftsmanship is beautiful & even has turned bone decorations. Was told it came from the N.E., migrated to St. Maarten, the the island of Saba & finally here to me is St. Maarten. The wooden threads tell me it was probably factory made so if anybody knows where, I would love to know.

    You 2 must be going thru the CW morgue. And Wind, if you mean Bob Ralph, I met him about 4 yrs ago O/L researching this wheel & he has been coming down every year since for the Heineken Regatta. If so, how do you know him? We both love this wheel.

    95% of the people I met & know here are transient & CW is close to the same, so I still don't remember how you would have gotten this from me. By the way, Bob got a glitch in his email address, so if you need to get in touch with him, I have the new one. I "bought him a street bike" but he was sick when he arrived in March & never rode it so I keep it moving now.

    sorry to hear he was sick... hope all is well by now... yes I'm transient and glad to head you can lift the kick stand and walk the bike around so you both wont seized up has he been popping that 50 lately ....?
  14. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 months ago
    Mon, me not push no blud-clot bike! Neither of us or "popping" or pushing 50 either. Or 60. We both passed them & now pulling them. The streets of SXM aren't nearly as safe when we get together. The natives are glad that it only happens once a year. The bike is a 180cc, cost 1/10 what my pickup drinks & gets me there 5+ times faster. Good investment advice is to take out an insurance policy on me.
  15. Windwalker Windwalker, 8 months ago
    no mon ...was talking about roberts 50 cal.................popping.. .lol but that's not a bad idea to take out some ins.on you u, must be pushing 68 by
