I'm interested in one. If you run out of cart cases or boards I can send you them.

Unfortunately, I can not make it to the Portland Expo. I would like one too if any are left over. Please let me know, thank you.

We can always make more, I ordered 50 more of my boards from China, and I have plenty of donors. ;)

Most 5200 controllers have shit the bed at some point in their life.

My 5200 takes shits like you read about. The size of a Bentley Bear, if you can imagine.

Put me on the "me too, I'd like to buy one but can't go to the Portland event" list. :-)

looks like a lot of people can't make it to Portland, including me. If you have any left I will take one also.

50 are being made right now. I'd like to make this some kind of a numbered, limited edition but I'm not sure 50 is enough. I'll see how many I sell at PRGE and if there is enough interest maybe make another run that is different in some way. I dunno, thinking out loud here.

I'd like to get one. Living in Orlando makes it kind of hard to get to Oregon or anywhere other than a beach hard for that matter.

Sorry about the crappy pic. LOL

Whoever gets one of these first 50, gets something special, the bags these carts are in, are professionally custom manufactured for a 5200 cart. I have no more. :cool:

So you're saying I should put the bag alone with a $5,000 BIN on eBay? "1 of a kind NO MORE SUPER RARE LQQK!"
