Agreed, but it's pretty hard to put your cycles in a bus like that. Gots to make some sacrifices to do what you want.

That first bus is a MT643. The picture of the shifter shows it's not a MD3060. They had a push button shifter. Look at that turbo. It's nice and BIG.

If I were to buy a bus that big, my choice would be the second bus. Plus it has a P-pump.

that bus is likely a 643, but fwiw not all 3060's have push buttons. Some districts spec'd regular shift levers. There aren't a ton of them, but they ARE out there.

I wonder if that makes the shifter even more expensive to repair?

I'll ditto the preference for a single rail pump over the rotary units. Easy to work on and tweak for more ponies.
