Scored a couple Puch team jerseys in my size this past summer on ebay for $15 each. Been looking for one for years, then found two within a couple months. I love ebay!

I'm kinda fond of this vintage Bramptom track hub (5$ for Raleigh it was attached to) and the mighty Vello Kombi Spesial (5$).

Pulled this out of the metal pile
Has an old coat of flat black spray paint over it's original orange. ( stolen or sick of the flaming orange)
Big ding in it's top tube, but the frame is straight. won't see a mountain ever again.
What the heck,, it was free.



any ideas on what year,, or how to easily remove the black paint??

That would disqualify the frame for me. I'd just pull off the parts and send the frame to Fuji frame heaven. Saves you the trouble of stripping the paint off it too.

It's gonna be just the bike i need to leave in front of the store unlocked and stood up wedged in to a snow bank. Think i'm going to leave the camo on to make it less desirable.

Well in that case... I guess you could use the slack in the rear brake cable to hang a jug of milk - so you could keep both hands on the bars and remain safe.

A few years ago I was leaving our local thrift store after finding no decent bikes when I noticed a brand new pair of Carnac Mountain bike shoes in my 42 size mixed in with the gym shoes. Best $3.95 I ever spent.

Found this Bianchi Grizzly in the GARBAGE yesterday afternoon while searching behind a local bike shop for a bike box to ship a bike. I almost didn't see it in fact, not because it was hidden but rather becuase I was so focused on find the darn box I actually had to move the fame out of the way to get at the boxes! Only after it banged me in the shin did I realize what was in my hands! (My shin says: "Better the be lucky then good")

I looked it over and it was arrow straight had deraileurs front and rear as well as brakes, shifters and stem/seatpost. I asked the bike shop about it and they said it was a customers bike that had been stripped down of the components the customer wanted transfered to his newly purchased bike. The shop has no use for an "old" steel MTB. HA! I say. Power to the "U" brake!

I had alot of fun last night in the garage with my new toy. I the bike apart, right down to the bottom bracket bearings, cleaned everything up, converted it over to work with a 7 speed set of wheels/tires I had laying around, added an XT rear cogset, new chain, new saddle, cables handlebars and viola! All I need now is a set of Canti brake levers... here is come eBAY!

Maybe in a garbage can near you...

Here's todays catch. Campy record hubs (I do believe) laced to Mavic GL330 Tubular rims, front 28/2x, rear 28/3x, rear spacing 126mm, no skewers, bladed spoking, marked handmade. 20$ for the pair. Smooth and hardly used.

Good catch! They're C-Record hubs. Great price! I'm a bit fat for 28 spoke wheels, but I'm sure they'll ride nicely. Where'd you find 'em?

Thrift by my place of work-- I go in there daily, have had a truly ridiculous week there. It only takes 5 minutes. Picked up a brand new cloudveil jacket for 2.98 as well, and a pile of good books, some cycling gear, french language tapes, nice northface pullover I gave to my boss (I am a suckup, but she wanted it. No, wait, that didn't come out right). Thought the hubs might be c-record, thanks for the id. Not sure what I'll do with the wheelset, but it's a keeper. Now I need a late 70's PXN10E to stick 'em on.

Thrifts are truly interesting-- I'll go a couple weeks without finding a thing, and then the floodgates will just open.

I like this thread, we should sticky it. We're one of the only boards w/o a sticky. .

Here here! How do we do that? Lotek?

btw - great catch. I haven't had great luck fishing lately. Hoping for a bite soon. I'm looking for what Pogue just got - only wide flanged, 36 spokes & AVA rims. Was tempted by the set that went for $100.00 on e-bay today, but...

but my catches:
1983/4 Trek 770 Frame/fork for $25.00 (ebay)
? year Zieleman Type Special 25Euro (you knew it was gonna be that, right?).

Going out later, might have to check the local thrifts (if I can find em).

Not so much Catch of the Day, but I've had a couple of good catches within the last year or so:

New Balance cycling shoes, size 13. These were sitting on top of somebody's trash a few blocks away from me, and by jove they fit!

64cm Trek 460 frame & fork. It's my current fixed gear, and one of my LBS guys let me have it for $5... I'm the tallest guy he knows
