I was looking all over the internet and e-bay for some cable guides I need for the mixte. For two days I'm gettin bupkis and then I remembered I stripped an old Centurian a friend from work gave me and lo and behold there were the exact pieces I was looking for (cue the collective sighs of relief from the forum) meaning I won't be bugging any of you folks (John D) for them. It was so odd that I finally remembered this bike frame and it shouldn't have cause I used the rear derailleur on the Continental. DUH
Not only is it a joy to have a parts stash, I cull mine twice a year.
The excess I garage sale on ebay (a real pain at 5/10/25 an auction) but this way I generally have a good idea of what's in inventory.
There's nothing like the feeling of thinking about a project, about what parts would be best then remembering that just such parts are in x, y and z boxes out in the garage.

I finally got around to installing a set of bins in my shop:rolleyes: When I tear down a parts bike the bits and pieces go straight to the bins if they are reusable. I also have some bigger bins that I use to contain ALL the parts of a single bike when I am doing an overhaul or major repair.
I have bins for the parts that have some value. I recently moved and now I have a hard time finding some of the bins! I looked all over for the stems, just a minute ago.
