Buried Treasure

This was given to me by a friend w/ the statement "you like this fucked-up old chopper shit--hang this on the wall..."
Off-set springer perch with waaaayyyy over rear legs: weighs about 90lbs.

I was going to remove the stem, but decided to do some professional exploration first. The problem is that Mikey is like that kid you invite to your birthday party, and while you're not looking he unwraps your fucking presents!
