It's hitting in some areas already. There's a new thread in the Classic and Vintage forum complaining about how the prices on used bikes have taken a major jump in the last year. A lot of it is being credited to the fixie fixation, but not all . . . .
A bit off topic but definitely a parallel course: For a living, I work in the parts department of a fairly large Honda motorcycle dealership. Over the past two weeks, I learned to dread any phone call that starts with, "I have this 80's Honda scooter . . . . . . . . "
