Zaharako's sells antique pipe organ
By Brian Blair, Senior Reporter

  [snip] The 185-pipe organ had fallen into disrepair often in recent
years, according to Lew Zaharako, who owns the turn-of-the-century
restaurant and soda fountain with his brothers.  He said Indianapolis
area organ repairers had gotten to the point that they could no longer
provide the detailed service the instrument needed.

  "I hope people will understand and not be too angry," he said.
"I know we've taken away something from people, but we felt like we 
had no real options."

  Zaharako said he is limited about what he could say about the sale
because the purchase contract includes a non-disclosure clause, as
requested by the buyer.  The California businessman plans to install
the organ in his house, according to Zaharako.
