That is amazing! Just need to cash out my 403(b). Actually I might do better with these than the stock market.

So at $23,000 for 29 bikes, we're talking around $800/bike. If I'm buying a large number of bikes, I'm expecting a rather large discount over buying them individually...at least half off and maybe more. The market and demand is limited by people who can afford it, can facilitate transfer and who can store them. To me that means that the average bike has to be worth $1,600. Too many of these are $500 bikes (and lower) for this kind of asking price. Also note the large sizes.

I don't think he's getting that price separately. I'm not sure he's getting half of that price separately. There's hi-ten in htere...Shimano 600 and lower...no way these are $800 median value. Personally, I'd be willing to go around $4,000 for the lot.

...Not to mention they are almost all tall frames, which will limit their marketablity. $10-12,000 would be a more realistic starting point.

Cheers,

While most of them are roughly my size, I don't have that kind of cash and I'm not sure that it's worth it. I see a number of decent but not museum worthy bikes mixed in there. Auction sounds like it's listed by a third party who inherited the collection or who is selling for someone who needs to get rid of their collection to raise some cash (or a bitter ex-wife). My guess is a collector needs to sell it but isn't computer literate so has someone else do it for them (who isn't auction literate). Hence the detailed descriptions of bikes yet the seller claims not to be a bike person and the silliness of selling them all at once to local pickup only.

+1...it reminds me of when my mother had me selling her toy horses. She gave me detailed titles and basic, relevant, information that I wrote down, I took photos and listed them on her behalf. I knew squat, but had good descriptions and photos.

She ended up selling them all together to another collector - for around $.25 on the dollar. That's what happens when you want the easy route and sell in bulk.

That asking price is absurd...it isn't even close. The valuable bikes in there (and there aren't enough of them) aren't of the value to justify the price.

I have a fillet brazed Jack Taylor that I like, but it is no Alex Singer. The frames may be similar, but take a look at how all the pieces fit together. There is nothing clamped or strapped, everything is so well thought out. Check out the trick brakes and the brazed on mounting posts.

I agree. This is an estate/business auction, where the goal is to move the whole lot quickly. Someone looking to resell could probably make an offline deal for less. I can't see a reseller paying the asking amount for large bikes, but who knows. The mint high-end bikes would easily fetch over $800 on eBay despite their size, and they're already boxed up.

If the bikes weren't all large, this would be a 'died and went to paradise' bid.

My disorganized, chaotic mother sold the contents of her house -- 50 years' worth of mcm furniture and collectibles -- to an estate person. Trying to get her to let me handle it was hopeless. Didn't want to sell, didn't want, didn't want, and then some estate person had to come in and write the check while she covered her eyes. That's how people get good deals, I guess!

I'm sure it's because I just don't get it, and my own lack of knowledge, but the Singer just isn't doing much for me...the rake looks unattractive, the chunky fork crowns...it's not doing it for me.

Your Jack Taylor probably would do it for me
