I recently advertised for a set of early transmission pedals in the classified section and George (who lives in Santa Rosa) sent me a very nice set gratis. I met him a few years back when he paid me a visit to check out my shop and ask about purchasing a lathe. We had a good visit and I heard from him only once since. When he saw my ad, he contacted me and sent the parts I needed, gratis. You don't find that kind of generosity often.
