Pizza Hut spoke reflector


I've never seen one before. I'm guessing it would be interesting to someone who likes bikes and Pizza Hut too!

One of the few bike accessories that needs to pass the smell test.

Considering that as of this moment there is an nos pair, red and amber, in original packaging, not selling on ebay for $13.99 / make offer, + $5 shipping, i fully agree with the $12,000+ evaluation.

In the time we've been discussing this rare artifact that sinister blue carpet has devoured and digested it.

You sure that's a reflector or a petrified slice of pepperoni??.....
I don't think it's worth much to most bike collectors, but there are people that collect restaurant and food company promotional items. But unless it's the only surviving example left on the planet, it might be worth just 8 bucks to one of those collectors = 2 slices of pizza in most cities....

They were used extensively in pro bike racing beginning in the late '90's. Armstrong was the last to win with them. But he's admitted to cheating. Today they have about the same value as one of those yellow arm bands.

I was more worried once about some kid with the shoes that light up when you step down on the bar route at ten pm, figured he'd be mistaken by a drunk for a cop car and cause a wreck.

This made me all nostalgic and stuff, since one of my first jobs was running the 5-minutes or it's free personal pan pizza lunchtime madness in the late 80s. As such, I am fully prepared to pay the $12k valuation posted above. PM sent.
