    Best B-Day Present Ever

    ok for my b-day(15) today, my granpa and me were gonna buy some bike parts from a LBS that was goin out of buisness, we walked in and said we were looking for some tparts, the first thing out of the ancient store owners mouth was "u can buy the whole bike inventory for 500" and my grandpa actually said "ok"
    it is amazing there is everything but whole bikes, theres hundreds of tires, amazing confusing parts that are nearly unidentifiable that are from, like, the 1900's a guy came in while i was paking some of it and offered me money for a few parts and explained some of the more eccentric parts, all in all best b-day gift ever, im gonna have to miss some school to pack up what we couldnt fit in to truck trips. ill get pix lator of some of the great finds

    You'll want to post some of those older parts in the vintage forum for identification if you're wondering what they are. Great find!

    Wow. Your grandpa probably has a bunch of things this community might be looking for! Have him read the forums. That WAS pretty cool and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALREADY!

    Sounds like you have a Foxy Grandpa there. Between Bike Forums, other forums and eBay, you will more than make the money back and get enough for that bike you really want, but you'll learn a bunch of good lessons that will pay you back for your lifetime. What a great birthday gift!
