I saw this in a Peugeot Facebook page. I should show this to my wife so she can realize my stable of 14 isn't so bad. Those Wolber disc wheels are kind of cool

I'd be careful, you might scare her even more if you show her a pile like that.

Ugh! That looks awful to me. I can barely stand to have more than three bikes. I would be stressed out by that many.

I can see myself getting trapped in there while looking for the perfectly patina'd full-531 frameset. I would battle rats, my existence, and finally chew my own pinky finger off to free myself. The movie would star Michael Shannon or Michael C Hall. Not picky. With a rockin' '70s soundtrack and lots of diffused flashbacks to a better time...

When I see such, I always wonder if most if them were ever even ridden once, by the present owner, after aquisition.

I would like to hire myself out to create an organization system for them. Organize the garage and in return, choose 5 cool bikes to keep. And parts, of course.

It doesn't seem like 5 would be missed!

It's funny but also makes me feel a little sad to think that all those bikes have basically been taken out of circulation and obviously forgotten. The only hope is one day they will be re released and not disposed of by some relative that cares nothing for the junk pile in the shed.

I get collections, and have collections/parts bins. But like in some of those picker programs, at some point it seems the subject collected has no real value for the person collecting.

It's a shame that the museum model of business is so unprofitable and unstable (grant funds!). Collections this size deserve space and ought to be exhibited.

Even things like that fairly common Peugeot on the top of the pile (speaking of which, why are its brake levers cut in half?) have museum-worthy importance when a collection is so large that you can literally feature most of the Peugeot offerings from a given year, in a row.

These are only four deep, so he's OK. Lots of space for more.

I have seen that picture before, probably on C&V. It is sad to see still-useful equipment tossed and stacked haphazardly in a manner that cannot be good for any of it. It reminds me of the big auction of classic cars 7 years ago in Pearce Nebraska, after a dealer had accumulated trade-ins and unsold inventory over the years and left it to rot and rust in a local field. The Lambrecht family did pretty well with the auction, but imagine how much more they would have received if the cars had been at least somewhat properly stored.
