Comments and questions to the seller:

from Ian Levitt, dated 18 september 2017
Hi,

I'm interested in this Riley Kestrel Sprite.
1. Do you have more pics, e.g. the dash, the underside etc.
2. It is a pre-selector box, correct?
3. What is the approximate cost to ship to USA, East Coast port, but not New York please.

Thanks.
