he can attend the "Paulfest" because it is being sponsored by a PAC.
(That's my assumption anyway)
I can however contact his younger brother and ask if there is a cool bicycle that he would like, that we could all chip in on.
IDK if he is more the mountain bike or 10 speed type of guy. I also have some connections to Lance Armstrong here in Austin, and I bet he would have a guy that could build RP a bike that would be top notch.
I do like the idea of some sort of symbolic retirement gift, providing there is not some stupid FEC regulation that prohibits it.
