Glad to be back. Hope you find what you are looking for. I looked at a lot of coaches GMC,FMC, Revcon and couldn't find anything that would work for us after owning a Bird. The kids are super excited.

The Insurance company totaled it after the homeless people trashed it up, no real damage just a huge mess.
I don't remember the name,but i may have met them at some rally somewhere..sometime..

Clean up will be a chore but will make a big change fast. I think I will get a Meth residue test kit before I start, there is a lot of residue on the ceiling.
I don't think it is tore up to bad just dirty. I only had about 20 min. to look at the bus, I spent most of the time looking at info in the blue box. The towing co. will be hauling it next Weds.

Bob, if you still need caging bolts, stop by my shop. I have some I will give you. It is really easy to do. But remember you will have NO brakes once caged (parking or otherwise).

Everyone need to know how this works, even tow truck drivers screw up sometimes The bus can run you over as you are caging.
