I've been looking at picking up a Williams Lowbuck, but yours appears to have a very nice degree wheel and the ability to do tighter radius bends. -Ben JD2 model 3.

Hypolan tubes can last for years, the tubes on my rib are pushing 35years old. Just make sure to not let them overinflate (3# max) , keep them out of sunlight and keep a coat of 303protectant on them.
