Nebula8080, I had another member PM me with an "I'll take it." 2 minutes before you posted and then PM'd me that you'd take it...sorry.

If for some reason things go awry with the deal, I assure you it's yours.

Here's a cut & paste of my PM log showing times, just to show it's legit. I blocked out the name of the member just in case he'd rather not be known. If so, he can post here if need be.

Sigh... Yet another item I miss due to being overseas. I never considered among the sacrifices I'd make during this tour on Okinawa was repeatedly missing the crap I was hawking for the past dozen years of building and being on the site while I was home in the US....

Ah well, spending the three weeks in Thailand at the end of them month will take off the edge...

Damn you jokers. I just about shit when I saw this thread and then saw the dates. You guys got me.

Sold my Ex-1 parts last year to pay for daughter's college and medical bills and thought I might have found a replacement.

I about flipped too! I'm currently broke, but for this I'd get a high interest loan to buy it! Very cool kit.

I have had this thread bookmarked for years. By far the nicest, most complete early trials kits I have ever seen.

Anyone know who ended up with it?? Sorry you missed out on it, too, Nebs, sure was a beauty.

Too little, too late, I know...but I think Nebs experienced a grave injustice in this instance. MP rules call for a seller to clearly state whether the item(s) for sale are cross-posted, which are the only conditions that allow for a buyer to secure a purchase via PM, correct? As there was no mention of cross-posting in the OP, Nebs' 'I'll take it' should have trumped any PM, regardless of time stamp. Can't really cry over six-year-old spilled milk, but dammit if I wouldn't have raised all nine kindza hell if that'd been me...

Must be feeling the same way Ms.Columbia did, when Steve Harvey announced his mis-spoke?

"I'll take it" is a guideline not a rule. It did not exist when this post was originally made. Just because many here want it to be does not make it so.
While it may be good business for the seller to use it does not mean they have to.
Some buyers may wish to keep their identity private by using PMs possibly because they are concerned about their mommy, daddy , or significant other watching their posts. Possibly just plain paranoia , or preference.

Wish I'd have bought it back then.
It was a bit of money for a kit at that time , but cheap by today's standards.

I bear no ill will to the seller or buyer on this one. Win some/lose some...over the years I've certainly won my fair share!

Rooster

He got the boot off the site. Ripping to many people off with shoddy stuff.

Some members never received what they paid for. Rooster was a pleasant and likable guy but somehow fell off the edge.

Yep, he advertised a type 1, SRA marked lower modified with type A stock cut but what I received was a Rhodesian marked type 3 lower modified with type A cut. Not correct for early build at all. Luckily for me Mountainman made the type 1 cut for me on that lower so all was good but would have been better if Rooster would have sent me what I paid for.
