    One nice feature of both the DB MTBs is that they have front rack brazeons on the fork. They both could make nice drop bar/touring style conversions. I think I will do that with the orange one.

    I just picked up a Ascent frame from Pure Bikes for just that reason, I haven't a bike with the mid fork braze ons anymore and have been looking for awhile, plus I like the older DB's they seem to fit me better then any other MTB company. Although I am not a huge fan of the drop bar conversions ( mostly because I need to ride upright anymore) that should make a nice one, I do plan on putting a set of Blackburn MT Racks on the front and back of my Ascent & maybe a set of Scott Bars along with some street/trail tires & a set of fenders.

    First two weeks of garage sale season, 3 bikes, five wheels (2 pair), floor pump, saddle, and some misc components. Off to a really good start. We'll have to see how long this continues. In past years, I might find one decent bike a month, maybe even two months. Fortunately, we look for other stuff that is more common as well. Otherwise, garage sales would usually be a bust.

    Nice find Bill!! Are those rims anodized gold?

    I found a pair of MTB stems with brake cable routing, both are unused but have been banging around the LBS for a long time. The Tioga Avenger has a cool internal cable path:





    The real find was this Lista cabinet I found on craigslist, I added some casters and it's my new mobile workstation.

    Went a little market this weekend, Drove to Rochester to pick up this GT to broker for a user of another forum who lives in Seattle:





    While I was up there, I figured I'd check out this thing. I liked it, so I bought it:







    But wait, the trek came with extras:



    The only downside, or perhaps the amazing side, is that my car ate it's transmission about a mile from the house of the GT's owner, but the Trek owner was up for coming down the 20 miles to bring me the trek while I was waiting for the tow truck.

    Which leads us to this beauty:

    You and the rest of us! Nice scores Dan, Ithaca->Rochester isn't exactly a trip around the block. Is that a Dodge Neon? Hope it's a cheap repair.

    Good eye Roger! I decided to take it out to the garage to polish it up - it doesn't get much love because I have a few machines that are easier to use...

    The transmission's toast. The car owes me nothing- bought it for $700, hit a deer a week later, got a $2700 value for it. Pocketed the money.

    I have a line on a $200 refurbed transmission and a friend owes me some lift time. It might not be dead yet. Kind wish it would just die already, but so it goes.

    Picked this up on Saturday. I believe it is a 1988 or 89. From what I can tell I think it is in the Quantum series. It has a complete 1988 Shimano 600/Ultegra group on it. The rear wheel is a Campy and the front is a Mavic. I have the bars out and the seat is a cheapo. It will clean up nice, unfortunately it is to big. I wish the top decals were not missing so I would no for sure which model it is.

    Been an awesome week on Craigslist for me. First I sold a Varsity for $140. Then picked this up for $120:
    DSC01342.jpg

    1989 Miyata 914, full 105. Rough condition, been partially badly repainted and the front wheel is out of round, but a steal for the price.


    Then I found this guy for $150:
    DSC01330.jpg

    1983 Trek 700. Frame is all Reynolds 531, Suntour Superbe components, Campy hubs, and those weird Weinmann concave rims.

    Gonna have a heck of a time choosing which one to keep and which one to sell.

    Attachment 305536"Attachment 305537I inquired about the Puch about a year or so ago. Child hood bike, the guy not ready to part with it. I did not see it again until this morning leaning up against a fence with the Phillips! The lady said, "take'em!" I took'em!

    Nice snags, Pat. Both of them.
    If I absolutely positively had to part with one of them, I'd keep the Trek.

    Got this for $100 two days ago. Not only that, but today I found a crisp 1991 $10 bill in the saddle bag that the original owner threw in. It even came with the original receipt.

    This is 'as found' condition.
