yep, I hear you. This one went out in a box today. I was tempted to run after the Fed Ex truck as it drove away.

No, because it was completely redundant with the Opus IV....that's the ONLY reason.

Dang, I really have to glue those tires on the Opus IV, tired of riding it gingerly

Don't have any photos to share, but it seems every time I decide to sell something "I won't need" it turns out down the road I do need it. Some things that come to mind....a gray Ultegra 600 dual pivot brakeset, several Campag cranks, a set of Super LJ derailleurs, large flange Campag Record hubs laced to 700c Rigida rims to name a few.

Ditto on selling both my 65 Ford Falcon and 61 Starliner (really regret that one).

From a cycling perspective I regret giving my brother my '84 Peugeot PSV.

I threw out a full campy super record groupo by mistake. Does that count?

He put that saddle on it 5 years ago so that he could ride around a bit on it, that is the original owner of the bike in the photo. It is a '67 so I guess that puts him in the 70+ age group. He didn't throw out the original Unicantor saddle and it was included in the sale.

My slight regrets were before digital cameras. Way before, so no pics. 71 PX-10, because it had lots of great memories attached; a second hand Windsor Pro. But the one that makes me wince a bit is the Raleigh Competition I bought new. That was a nice bike. No real strong regrets though. I try to look back with fond memories. Still, I wish I still had that black Raleigh with the Jubilee derailleurs.

My only regret is that I stopped cycling for recreation for a few years after college, and that I didn't find this forum and hobby sooner.


Those are some tight fenders there, Scott.

That's a beauty, and I love the fender-line especially!
