Hallo FJF,

Vielen Dank fuer Ihre Antwort. Es ist ziemlich hoffnungslos in den
Staaten Teile fuer den Ultralite zu finden. Deshalb verkaufe ich es.

Mir hat ein Typ in Hawaii schon $50 angeboten und ich wuerde es ihm
gerne verkaufen, falls Sie nicht mehr bieten wollen.

Mit fruendlischen Gruessen,

Bernd Doehner
