I gotta agree with you on that. I did do a search for salvage stuff in the UK but ,nope,nothing came up.

nope,   will be rarer than a Politian speaking the truth over here
Well,at least we finally got a bluntly honest,for the most part,President here.

Cool for sure. I was/am amazed that the nomad is bronze welded chassis. WTH is up with that? I mean for MX bicycles I would be OK with it but on a car?????

Arn't bikes brazed? Maybe with the ERW pipe and the bronze welded they have a different design philosophy?  They want some flex in the chassis and this is the way to do it with out cracked welds?  Counter intuitive as everybody talks "rigidity" but there might be a method to the madness?
I know the theory but IMO,it's not for any use where structural integrity is the most important criteria. Most bikes today are tigged as well. The brazed joint is not a welded joint even though they call it welded. It is a much weaker joining method. Probably up to the task,I mean ,haven't you seen the ads for flex tape?  :m

I knew it was coming. Now who's dumpsters am I going to use? LOL!!!!!  FWIW,Waynoka is like most towns,no local loyalty. I recently read where only 15% of any towns population ,on average, were local loyal.Hope the towns people like grocery shopping 30 minutes away.

Our town is a fair distance to next store.  They exploit that.  They even tax food at 3%.  (Very few communities tax food) 

Sales tax on other elements is about 10% total.  Local loyal?  I am shopping for car. ( I can drive 70 miles to save $400.00 in Phoenix  (10% vs 9%) or pick a vendor out of any Town/City limits and save $1,200.00 to $1,600 in local taxes - 6% state)  on a 40k purchase.  Trip to Costco for $700.00 of food goods?  Well, the $21 dollars in "food tax" gets spent on fuel, and the offset in sales costs is worth the trip. 

Local loyal?  Just as soon as the small towns don't exploit it.   Really want some shit?  I can buy out of state, pay privilege tax direct and face only 4% fee.  So, lets see, 4,000 on 40k for total of 44k,  or avoid "local loyal," work the system and pay 41,6K.  I think I can make a day trip for $2,400.00 in lower costs. 

Local Loyal!  LMAO
