Tengai in Oaxaca

around 2001 I spotted this Tengai in Oaxaca, MX. It was for sale. He wanted about $32700us for it. I really wanted to buy it and ride it home..

Really cool but for less than half the price you can buy one here in the US and paint it any color you want.

Yeah, seemed kind of expensive at the time too, but if I found one in good condition around here for less than $1400 I'd probably snap it up in a second.

By the way, did I sell you a Tengai tank a few years ago? It was one with Japanese graphics on it blue white and green.

Now that I see your name in your signature than YES you did. The tank was in excellent condition, thank you very much!

I put together another Tengai I had in pieces and sold it to a fellow in Canada.

I still have my original Tengai for sale and too bad you are on the other coast if not I'd give it to you for 1,400.
