Love a dedicated vintage enthusiast!

My wife and I came to the obvious yet painful conclusion that we have too many bikes. We decided to part with a pair of vintage rides in my Razesa and her Mercian. I listed them on CL about 10 days ago and both are being bought by a husband and wife from LA which is about a 9 hour drive !
We will be meeting them in the morning and taking them out on a 35-40 miler with us before they drive home. I thought my wife and I were the only ones that would drive that far for a bike ! Our kind of people 👍🏻

Those look like they're worth a nine hour drive to me. Very nice.

I hope I never get to that painful conclusion as you put it, and I wonder what little treasures you have in storage when you're selling that beautiful blue bike.

The Razesa seems to ring a bell, like I've seen it before.

I once drove down to L.A. to buy a Cheltenham Pedersen. A special bike for sure, not very common.

I had a guy drive up from So Cal to buy my Richard Moon last year, a very special bike that one.

I'm looking into a 'secret' offsite storage space so I don't have to part with any of my bikes. It's always N+1 never N-1 or 2 as in your case

I think we are still at N+20 or something like that?
