Electra Phoenix X110VW (CAN)

Post by Barry on Sat Jul 22, 2017 12:32 am

Never seen one of these for sale anywhere near me before. Or an Electra model of any sort for that matter.

It's too difficult to retrieve from where I am or I think I'd grab it.  LINK to Ad

Looks like what the Westone X125 should have been! LINK to Electra Catalogue
CAD$150

Mate.... grab it!! I'd love one of those single p'up Spec/Phoenix and I've never ever had the damn chance!!

It's only about 100km away, man... over here, you'd drive twice that just for a pie and a beer!!

And I have!

Never say never, I am really tempted.
I have the X125 but there seems little comparison other than they both have a single pup.

However...100 Km is easy, as the crow flies. But it ain't the distance that's the problem. It's the convoluted route I have to take from here.

I'm limited as to how I can travel out of the area. I can travel the major highway along the shore of Lake Ontario from Niagara to Hamilton to Toronto OK ("The Golden Horseshoe") but to travel West from that you can end up on lesser, sometimes 2 lane, roads with constant speed changes, construction, or have to take major detours before you again reach decent highways.

A one hour drive can easily double. Double that again for the return, plus time at the location. Most of the day shot. I don't know that I'd want that pie, but definitely a beer would be in order after that!  Drink Beer

I was tempted at first too as I'd love another Electra, but:
I considered it's 3 hours each way... and I don't really drink beer. Whiskey and Brandy for me  Cool
But it seems very nice, at a decent price!

That's a very long haul for you for sure Steve, even on decent roadways. You'd need to pack a lunch!

I only do beer in the summer, it seems like the best refreshment in the heat, yard work etc. Otherwise I'm with you on the Brandy and wine.

I'm disgusted by the bargains north of the border that keep showing up.

Just a fluke I can assure you. It ain't the norm to see Rising Suns and Electras all over the place!
