I think Ive got a great fixerupeer but its a 16 Sportster Gull-Wing with
extra outdrive and other parts on tandem version of the orig. steel trailer
with 6 bolt mobilehome tires. No glass damage, other than roller scratches
on bottom. Will give to church or take most reasonable pentance by
interested parties. Sincere inquiries can be sent a scanned instant camera
image. I think its the sexiest of the tri series from Evinrude. Goes 42+
with a tail-wind. Deadline on offers is 2.15
