Steel is my thing, I've been collecting fine cycles for the last 30 years. I have sold several and only have a few in my stable now - but each is a fine example from the bike boom of the seventies and eighties. They are 1976 Schwinn Paramount, 1978 Raleigh Professional, a very rare Ellis Briggs - Favori (Campy SR), a very rare Fuji - The Ace (First bike to offer the Dura Ace group), Batavus Professional (Campy SR), Schwinn Prelude - rare Pink. I have previously owned a Raleigh Team Pro, Masi, Follis Professional, Peugeot PX-10, and many others. Needless to say I love campy and have several "extra stuff" around my "want-to-be-shop". This collection problem that I have comes from when I lived in England in the late 60's then later moving to the states where I had the only true english racer in the sleepy town of Glasgow, KY.
***Cool Stuff - I just heard that a close friend of mine saw the biggest collection of bikes that he has ever seen under one roof. My friend is not a bike person but said the way the bikes where displayed was awesome. The barns owner is from Florida where, according to my friend, he owned several primo shops. Anyway, I plan on scoping out the situation and checking this guys collection and will report back. According to my contact, each bike was worth $1m.
