I just learned the hard way, when you make an eBay purchase from a seller who collects sales tax, eBay won't refund the sales tax portion of the purchase when you have a 'return'. The eBay supervisor I spoke with told me the sales tax is collected for the state and they (eBay) can't return it to the purchaser.  Usually this isn't a large amount of money, but it could be huge on a collectible/rare bicycle. I'm going to avoid any seller who charges/collects sales tax.  :(

From Stephen via an e-mail since he is having trouble with his Message Board log-in:

I'm still alive.  Stuff is everywhere.  I bought my new house on Oct 4th, but haven't had time to move in.  Half of the Wheelmen stuff/magazines are there.  The other half here, at the "old" house.  Every time I have a showing, all the paperwork, mail, kids schoolpapers, etc, all gets thrown in a box & put away, to have a neat house. 

I'm sure I have Brian Austin's request, plus one from Dave Gray, and a few others, including one who pre-sent a check. 

I feel that I am doing a disservice to the Club, for not responding in a timely manner, for not updating publications, for not being more active in generating funds for the Club.   But, the club doesn't seem to have enough volunteers now.  I've put out feelers for a replacement.  Carey mentioned he has storage space, but that's not necessarily the problem.  I don't know who in the club would take on the storage space PLUS Sales job.  Someone that will be at Copake, & National Meets to sell, plus be on the watch for buying old/rare issues back for the Club, to sell at a premium.  So, I muster on, when I can.   

I will try to reach out to Brian, Dave, and the others that have made requests, as soon as I can.

I have tried to get in contact with Stephen Hartson for back issues of the Wheelmen Magazine.

Need issues # 82,83,84 & 85. Must be originals and excellent condition at a minimum.

Okay, the program will be Bob Jameson talking about a tandem he restored for the museum.
Otherwise, showing, trading, swapping, selling, buying will be rampant on the third floor all day.

Please, even if you only have a lead, I'll take it. I've been actively searching for one of these for over 2 years. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
