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 for got to mention the uber cool salsa stem on the kestrel
nice pick up dan, sucks about your car tho, i saw that in cl , but i wasn't interested, too much money and too short for me...i may be interested in that brooks tho

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.
Great grab on the Klein!
Been an awesome week on Craigslist for me. First I sold a Varsity for $140. Then picked this up for $120:
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:
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.
^Not a bad problem, Pat! Both are really nice, but, the I would have a hard time parting with the Trek...

It probably will, you should send it over here to avoid said ruckus.

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.
