One thing to consider is that some of these vintage bikes, being 50 years old, may have been through several owners and possibly changed hands via unscrupulous means at some point.
I keep receipts of all the bikes that I buy from thrift stores, and make receipts to be signed by any Craigslist sellers I buy from.
