Uh oh, police auction tomorrow

Just found out over 100 bikes and who knows what else will be available at the annual San Diego police auction tomorrow. Somebody stop me!

Speaking of which, any requests?

Don't stop, don't ever stop. I have 22 bikes and I still haven't stopped.

Seriously, DeeGee--I'd love a classic Raleigh three-speed. How you ship one of those from CA to VA is another question.

If DG got even 1 more bike- It would ruin his back.There cant be much more room in his flat.Except the bed- and even He would draw the line at sleeping with one.

22 bikes? Hmm, seems a bit over the edge.

Yah I'm gonna have to thin the herd this summer, But I pick most of these up at thrift stores and yard sales. It is hard to pass up classic road bikes for 5 or 10 bucks. I do have about 5 or 6 regular riders that it would be hard to part with though.

Made home without buying anything. Lots of junk, people paying outrageous amounts. Fun to look, but that's about all.
