    I think I saw a Masi in the pile. Yes, right next to the Colnago.

    I think that he passed the Enthusiastic Bike Collector's exit about 70 miles back and is now nearing the County Mandated Clean-up and Court Ordered Psych Treatment neighborhood...

    But on the west coast ...

    ... there's a guy in Riverside (CA) who constantly posts on the Inland Empire CL, he's got a collection of bikes on his property that looks almost that large ... he constantly posts, and sometimes it's "take 'em all for $1,000" ...

    I work 2 miles from this place. These ads show up pretty often.

    Someday I have to run over at lunch just to see what's there. Somehow I'm not thinking there's a Team Raleigh Pista hiding in the backyard!

    Damn, I want to see this in Google Maps

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    If that was within a 2 hour drive, I'd check it out.
    There was a guy in Durham that had over 100 bikes. He was known for rebuilding them, then giving them away to needy kids in his area. I gave him a few bikes, a really nice guy. He got most of his bikes from the City Parks system who gave him all the abandoned bikes they found. I checked out his 100 bikes. I know it may be difficult to believe, but only 4 or 5 bikes were actually worth anything. One Schwinn Traveler, a Trek 800, a Raleigh MTB and a really nice Specialized Allez that he kept for himself (he deserved it). Just lots and lots of Walmart, K-Mart and Target bikes.

    The Florida guy started on BF, C&V, and it got out of hand....

    Rocco, I've met the Sgt Major (USMC Retired) in Durham. No nonsense dude. How he can fix those Wal-Mart brakes is beyond me. Whenever I'm in Wal-Mart, I try to buy a tube or tire, drop them off at his place whenever I'm in Durham. Thugs rule his part of town at night, but no one bothers the Bike Man...

    It reminds me of the local bike salvage - just went there today to pick up some odds and ends. If you don't mind getting greasy, you can usually find what you're a-hankerin for.

    There's a PropertyRoom.com site in Orlando and they're known for auctioning big lots of bikes for cheap. I wonder if this guy has been getting them there?
