I just sent 50 or so old frames and a ton of assorted parts to the scrap heap... They left on a big flatbed and will be either your next new car or washing machine.

There really was nothing usable... The stuff I did not want but was usable already went to the local Goodwill.. This stuff really was better suited for scrap.. trust me!

I happens. I took a Next, a Magna, an old Murray, and a tiny little rotted Motobecane with a frozen fixed cup and unknown threading to the dump about a month ago. It felt nice to get rid of them. They weren't worth passing on to people. Better of recycled.

I brought a load to Urban Ore in Berkeley thinking it would be put out for sale. Most of it went home with the workers. No wonder I can never find anything there...
