Junk bike collection?
Well, I went back to the place where I found my Nishiki just to take some pics of all that was stashed in the back of this place. Kind of doubt that there's any real gems, but thought I'd share anyways:
First up, is the Roadace 202. I think it was runing mostly Shimano components, all looked period and stock.
The crusty Raleigh I was tempted to get, I think it's a Regent or something.
And old Norco:
Can't remember what this was part of, but this gives you an idea of how long some of these bikes have been hanging around in the salty air:
Nishiki Rallye, lugged frame, Stem shifters. I don't have much in the way of tools, but would this even be worth squat if I tried to fix it up?
Different stays than my international.
Old CCM Corsa XL
The wheel selection:
There's also I think 3 Apollo frames, atleast one of them a Mixte, as well as a Nishiki mixte frame in the mix as well that I just couldn't get any decent shots of.
The place is like a junk haven, the guy has the most eclectic assortment of STUFF I have ever seen, all stacked to the rafters of a 2 story warehouse. I couldn't get any shots of the inside of the building due to the lack of light however. I could grab any of the bikes for $20, so...if any of them are worth saving and trying to rebuild, let me know.
