With all the excitement generated by the recent 150 bike ebay auction I thought people would like seeing this guy's massive collection for sale as well.

Well, give or take $1900

I've noticed that anytime a well known company releases some bottom-of-the-barrel quality marketing product - ie a cheap bike, guitar, lamp, piece of furtniture, etc - some idiot buys one and inexplicably believes it's gonna be super valuable one day, simply because it has some brand stamped all over it. Makes me always equate the word 'collectible' now with 'junk'.

I thought this was interesting... could be your typical, every-day Nishiki frame but an entirely chrome number? I'm not big on the brand, but seeing this piqued my curiosity. I don't know of anyone, Waterford or others, that stamped the letter into the BB like that.

BD, you know the best from Houston CL is this:

Marlboro Fuji folding bike

I think it's been on there for close to 2 years now (it started at $200 IIRC).

I used to save Marlboro miles, along with Camel and Pepsi points (garbage saves). The bike was usable, heavy. Fuji also did a Pepsi bike.

Friend of mine used to save up Camel points. Wonder how many packs of smokes that Marlboro bike represents?

Well, 5 miles per pack and I believe the bike was 2000 miles. 400 packs or 8000 cigs. We used to keep a bag on the side of our garbage truck and split our take at the end of the day. I still have a back packing fly/spin rod.

this is just weird

Custom Mixte Bicycle Shimano Alfine 11 Di2 Brifters Gates Carbon Belt Drive | eBay



[TABLE="width: 1379, align: center"]
[TR]
[TD]This bike was custom built with the goals of maximum comfort and minimum maintenance.
For example…
Drop bars offer the most hand positions, but are usually set below the level of the saddle. The high rise adapter on this bike allows the handlebars to be raised to almost any height. The Ritchey adjustable stem allows for additional forward adjustment. The slight flare of the Salsa Woodchipper bar provides additional comfort. A pair of rubber grips similar in shape to the Ergon GP1 that would not fit this bar were added and then covered (along with the rest of the bar) with several layers of Bontrager cushioned handlebar tape. The result: a perfectly positioned handlebar with the maximum number of alternatives for hand positions, all greatly cushioned.
[/TD]
[/TR]
[/TABLE]

it goes on for quite a bit. i GUESS it MIGHT be worth 5000$??? ehhh....

Well, I can imagine that will be up on E-Bay for the next 5 years.

For that price, I'd expect at least a Rohloff 14.

The Soma Mixte frames are apparently nice, but less than $450. 62cm is absolutely HUGE for a Mixte.

The fork is a replacement and the frame looks to of been spray painted chrome.
The serial number indicates its from 1979. Probably an international.

The W stamp is for west coast cycle.

Looks like a nice frame though. The fork is a turnoff and the price is a bit steep for what it is In my opinion

Thank you, appreciate that. Yeah, incongruity between frame and fork wasn't immediately obvious to me. Looking at it now, it should have been.

Spray painted chrome I would not have known. I haven't had any experience with the stuff. You? I wonder how durable it might be. I imagine its still just as susceptible to easily cracking and what-not. The International can be built into a pretty decent touring bike, so I'm curious as the long-term viability of this kind of exterior.

The only reason i think it is chrome spray paint is because in some places it looks dull. The picture showing the head tube and fork show the differences.

I dont know much about the durability of chrome spray paint but i would assume it is the same as any color of spray paint.
