I came into real biking when buying a new Motobecane Mirage in '73. Through the decades I would pick up a road bike with the intentions of riding like I did in my teens. About 10yrs ago I found an '85 Trek 460 and the fire was rekindled, been seriously cranking out fast miles ever since. I paid 35.00 for it and shortly thereafter found this group that is solely responsible for my buying habits. You can see the most of what I have on my avatar/sig line. Maybe the most I have paid was 120.00 for the near mint '89 PRE.

What has driven the prices up? The awareness of value. 10yrs ago these were junk bikes in garages taking up space. Then came American Pickers and Craigslist. The race was on.
