My machine is 15 years old and still working well. I might upgrade it to one of these.

I will purchase the drop weight assembly only since the mounting and clamps are still working well.
Barry, that's a nice looking machine - looks very similar to my Challenger I. I can see that I could always buy just a new drop weight mechanism anytime and this thing would still rock as the base and clamps are all very nice and heavy.

Anyway, after this spring fling, a crank is looking pretty attractive, LOL.
