    I was lucky enough to win the bid on this featherweight for $120.99. It badly needed physical restoration, though it ran fine. DH spent the week stripping, painting and putting new decals on it-did a pretty good job, I'd say. But-in the end, it did cost almost as much as if I'd just paid the regular going price! Still working on refurbing the case.
