Re: i got weak !!! bought a 242K

I saw that early on and put it in my watch list. Didn't get too excited about it because I thought it would really climb in price. I have a partial what I think is a 242K here. It has a nice early tank on it and it has the round pricker wheel on it but missing all the other 242K features.
