    Why does the OP harass on the person potentially "hoarding?"

    Perhaps a better way of handling this would have been to say, "Well, thanks, but that's more than I want to spend on that brand of bike. I appreciate your getting in touch with me, though. If you change your mind give me a call back; my offer still stands. Have a nice day."

    It appears that trolling is what the Enthusiast is enthusiastic about.

    It's not that you might have hurt nybody's feelings here, because I doubt you did. It's that you need to grow up a bit and accept that people don't owe you any explanations or justifications for not wanting to sell you something.

    As any girl will tell you, no means no, and at that point you need to accept that and move on.

    The title had me thinking it would be a guy fondly remembering that first 10-speed he bought new in 1975 or so -- not a kid barely out of high school.

    Don't worry, man, there are plenty more old bikes out there.

    hoarding is a sickness. There was a guy near here that would buy all the tools he could from the classifieds and CL and then throw them into his yard. I guess he was a well-off hoarder. People in this area seem to over-value their tools anyway, but I have often wondered if they didn't just price them for that guy. There are all sorts of reasons I might not sell something I own. Generally, anything i want to get rid of is given away already.

    Now that I posted this story, I remembered that the tool hoarder would then proceed to list the tools for sale. That's how I found out that he had them stored in the yard, which in this area is just destining the tools to the scrap metal dealer. He would never budge on his prices either.

    Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's house, wife, or property, including bikes.

    This POLAR VORTEX is bringing out the wackiness of the weak minded not accustomed to cabin fever. But then, I wouldn't obsess over a C&V Peugeot PGN 10 pictured OP's photo because I have the one below, plus a group of Motobecanes, GR, GJ, C41, Interclub Tandem, and more than 1/2 dozen French mixtes to refurb and flip.

    The last one is probably the exact frame the OP wants, if he is 6'3" or taller.

    I just happened upon this post and saw the picture from the OP.. What is funny is that is my picture and is a bike I sold a few years ago to a gentleman in Ohio. I have also had the Peugeot below which matches your description a lot better. I also sold that one. So as you can see, I do not get attached to all of my bikes. Keep looking they are out there and it will cross your path.

    I went to the local bike shop today to drop off my Schwinn for a tune up and he interrupted my speaking and asked why I ride a bike that is meant for a man over 6'. Haha I'm 5'5" but I try and avoid the bumps on the road if you know what I mean! And nice bikes brandenjs!
