Any collector value of this Rock Lobster?
I recently purchased what is supposed to have been Paul Sadoff's personal cyclocross bike. One he made for himself - perhaps even raced and then sold to the person I bought it from. I have not bothered to verify the sellers story since it didn't mean a thing to me when I purchased the bike - I just bought it to ride. Well, now that I've got about 100 miles in the saddle, I've decided that I need to make a few changes to make the bike work for me.
Before I do - am I messing with a potential collector's item? I'm changing handlebars, stem, saddle, seatpost and perhaps the fork.
I guess I can keep the parts and restore it later but knowing nothing about collecting - would it still be considered an original then?
