Most recent observed top speed was 76 mph, which was faster than I wanted to go, although the coach was comfortable. That steering stabilizer and Koni shocks make a difference!

Anyway, to all who contributed, my thanks, and yes the bus is for sale!
Raleigh, what is the name of the mechanic or the shop name?

His name is Michael Zientek. He owns and operates Michael's Truck Repair.

Hwy 177 & US 270

They fix everything big. Good, friendly reasonable. Very busy. If you're in a rush, tell them in advance. Easy to work with.

And if anyone's wandering (pun intended) I sold BOB last year after Michael got him to run 88 mph!
