That was his one-and-only post. We know now that if he DID buy it, he'd be back here with about 100 more posts asking questions about how to get it up and running. Trolls, I tell you!

I always loved those wheels the most out of the SA22's. They seem more rare than the later 80 model waffles, and there's something about the speed-holes that appeal to me still to this day. Enjoy...
