The LBS Bike swap been very, very good to me.

I passed on the nearly mint, $400.00 full Dura Ace Tommasini (since one of my buddies had found it first), and the $50.00 Pinarello (about 60cm) frame made of Colombus Cromor, and the $50.00 56cm LeJeune frame with the chrome entirely wasted on the right fork tip (might be able to snag these on Monday if they're not sold, and someone here really wants one of them. I also passed on the mint Bob Jackson that was set up as a city bike for $450.

Why?

Because I'm a bottom feeder!!!


You guys will see some things for sale in the next couple days.

What I did grab was a Maserati. (vroom vroom) My daughter's ex-boyfriend found it first, and was wheeling it back when some other fellow nearly talked himself into buying it. I waited patiently until he decided not to get it, and I seized the day, having a vision of what this could become.

It's not a long-term keeper, and eventually, I'll either sell it, or part it out, but not until after the Cirque - so no posts or PMs or anything untoward, because for now, I'm considering this bundle of Italian funk, mine. I think this one has it in it to out-funk my friend, Harvey, at Cirque this year. It was a very busy day, and I didn't get around to pictures of it yet. Will put some up in a day or two.

Just a teaser though... everything on this bike (far as I can tell) is Italian - right down to the atrocious Gnutti hubs. Fortunately, there are some other bits that are quite nice.

What's the condition of the Pinny? Fork?

Would you mind if I sold the '62 Raleigh Sports frame to make room for it?

I've no great attachment to that old Sports. Wouldn't be at all offended if you passed that on to someone. Check your PM.

Bottom Feeder. NO WAY. Not even close.

When your flippers say things like "ROADMASTER" or "HUFFY". THAT'S when you're a bottom feeder.
I am proud of myself, I passed on a totally beat Fuji MTB yesterday for only $20.

But now I'm having regrets.
