Did see that Comet sales has the Eagle which is a copy of an Arrow for around $2500.  Made in U.S. from imported chromoly.  Seems more reasonable, but has some cheaper components.  Seems like there used to be a lot more American made chassis around.  And the Zip was made in the UK back in 1990.  Now have a Margay which has some EU components like the axle.  It retails for $3795 without tires.
