Originally built back in 2015. One-of-One, custom ICON Reformer. Impossible to duplicate at this price, and we will not repeat the design anyway! That is part of why these custom ICON projects stay so special. Only 1200 miles since completed, the owner said it was too perfect, and he was afraid to drive it!!!
