Bugger all right Peter. I would have been nice to have it by Christmas. Long as it is coming I guess.

Comment by Peter Smith on Monday

Just got an email from Tim at Trisled. The shells sent to them needed repairs and my RV has been delayed again. Trisled are building my RV as I type. I'll know of a delivery date by the end of the week. Bugger!

Thanks Peter, I'll arrange for her to have a look at the jc70. Any news on the delivery date on your RV?

Comment by Peter Smith on Sunday

Hey mib, I'm happy to let your better half take the jc70 off Kelvin's hands if she is really keen. After all I have a new trike arriving soon.

Comment by mib on Sunday

Kelvin, I mentioned it to my wife and she also is very interested. So, it looks like you shouldn't have too much of a problem finding it a new home.

Wouldn't have a problem with the boom being long enough. I would have to make it fit a halfling. :-)

A1 Adventure Sports at Kenmore are either dealers or importers or Performer stuff. They advertise lots of parts and though I don't see any booms, that doesn't mean they don't have then or can't get them.

In any case, Performer are a Taiwanese company and I daresay will either sell you a boom or tell you where you can buy one in Australia.

Comment by Peter Smith on Sunday

I am definitely interested. I'll email you and I'll come and inspect.

Comment by David on Sunday

I am somewhat interested if Pete doesn't want it.
