Yesterday I answered a CL ad that was local for bicycle parts at wholesale prices, so I packed up my truck with supplies and my dog and headed out for a 25 min ride to see what this guy had to offer, his name is Mike and he had just purchased the contents of a large bike shop that was a Schwinn dealer that closed 2yrs ago. I was instantly overwhelmed when I looked in his garage there were boxes and boxes of parts,boxes and boxes of wheels and tires walls filled with anything you could need to build a bike from the ground up including brand new Schwinn Super Sport frame sets ( at least 10 ) still in original boxes. I spent 5 hours there just looking through stuff and talking with him and it turns out we know all the same people and he is the best friend of one of my best friends brothers. I am going to help him sell some of the stuff that he is not used to dealing with ( anything non BMX ) and I am going to bring him here first as he is showing an interest in vintage road bikes and has picked up a few very nice bikes already.
He is a member of bmxmuseum.com and likes to help the younger guys get more involved in the sport of bmx racing and getting to know him for the short time that I did I think he would fit right in here with the rest of us. Part of what I picked up yesterday is going to help get some of my projects a little closer to finished.
Tires include a set of NOS Schwinn 16" for a Pixie I picked up this spring and two sets of IRC road tires in 27" and 26"x 1 3/8" at $10 a set I couldn't pass this up and will be going back for a lot more. I already had him put aside a Super Sport frame in my size 22"
