    Today's yardsale finds

    I went to an amazing yardsale today. Overwhelming quantities of bike parts. I got there at 9:30, and guys had alreadt assembled huge piles of parts. I really didn't NEED any bike parts, but I LOVE bike parts. I was very happy to find a few oddball things that made me go squee. The Purty vintage steel Cinelli stem, and the 3ttt bars and adjustable stem set were particularly nifty.

    You know I know it's probably worth some cash, but I kinda love it too. I'm a little tempted to put it on ebay to see what i could get for it, but I don't think I'll ever likely turn up another one at a yard sale.

    Geez, the type of person who has that stem usually knows their value; that is quite the yard sale find!

    I know it's value in a rough sort of way, It's not like I've been combing ebay for one for months, and I also don't feel inclined to sell it. I know it's quite rare and sought after. Even though this one is in pretty rough shape, I know it's still worth a few bucks, but honestly, I can't guess how many few. In better shape I would guess somewhere in the $150ish range on ebay, but there aren't any recent sales to compare it to.

    Doncha wanna know how much I paid? I'll give you a hint. price out the two tubes of Tubasti at retail, then throw everyting else in for free.

    There was a LOT of stuff, these items were in the bottoms of some boxes, and were also probably not what most people were looking for. Sometimes it helps to have somewhat oddball tastes.

    Great score!
    You never know what you might find at a yard sale. That's why it pays to shop them consistently and regularly. You might go 6 months without finding anything, then stumble upon a real deal the very next trip. Gotta stick to it - perseverance pays!

    I keep telling myself that, but with my current dry spell it is tough.

    I would see if you can clean up some of that rust on the Cinelli stem and then throw it up on ebay with great pictures and an INTERNATIONAL shipping option. I haven't sold a Cinelli stem like that, but last year I sold a 1960s-ish vintage steel adjustable track stem for close to $300. It was shipped to its new home in Australia.

    In case no one else says it, You SUCK. Nice finds!

    Karma will work itself out. You think you've gotten a good deal until you try opening that Tubasti, which is really nasty stuff.

    Unless you're desperate for cash, why not hold on to it for a while and appreciate it? It certainly won't depreciate in value over time.

    I understand all the Cinelli chatter, but I really dig that adjustable 3TTT job. Those usually bring decent money themselves.

    ones without brass badges are newer, but not lesser quality. I think the brass badges are coveted, because they are pretty, but other than aesthetics they don't mean much.
