    Death Wobble... Almost fixed....

    Deuce from MD to SC

    If it will help on getting it shipped or towed, I have a Deuce in SC, Columbia area, that needs to be towed back to the DC area. It could provide a back haul for a tow company or shipper and maybe save us both a few $$. Not trying to hijack the thread, just offering an option. Thanks- Don
