Inspired by the various CL/ebay lookout threads and related stories.
It appears some parts of the country are definitely good markets for classic and vintage road bikes....in my context, mainly race bikes from the 60s/70s/80s and early 90s, when steel ruled.
Most of the Northern metro areas, espescially Boston, come to mind. Likewise Chicago, and the Left Coast cities.
Bad markets seem to be more common to small and medium sized metro areas in the Plains and the South. If I didn't know better I'd say I live in the worst one of all, but that might be giving my redneck neighbors a little too much credit.
What say you folks?
