It is fun. Lots of good deals to be had.

Moderator, would you please move this to discussion thread. Didn't mean to put it in the sales group.

Too far away for me, but thanks for the link to the website. It's been a while since I've seen that design outside the Wayback Machine.

Brought the 1974 Raleigh Twenty, with original rack bag, for $170. Got it outside and rode it, realized the front bearing are shot. But still a good deal, everything else seems fine, I am happy with it. .

Almost brought the Vitus 979 (socketed, bonded aluminium frame) for $275, till I noticed it did not have the original quill seat post. I have 2 Kabiki Submariner stainless steel bikes with quill seat posts; after leaving I was wondering if they would fit the Vitus.

That was a pretty bike and a good deal. I saw you headed out the door with it! The front hub should be an easy fix.

I had a great show. Bike geeks everywhere! Sold 4 out of the six bikes I took with me to sell and a bunch of small parts. I had more fun chatting with all the people that came by my set up and it was great to make a little money at the same time. I always make sure I have full disclosure about any issues with bikes that I sell. I sleep better at night because of that.
For instance I had a decent Benotto for sale, but the seat post was stuck. I sold it at a great discount and the buyer was perfectly fine with it. I was kind of sad selling a few of them, but made room for some new ones in the stable .

It was a nice looking bike. I definitely would have considered it if I was in the market for a new bike. I also thought the price was good.

I had a good time, and got a modest haul of useful stuff for cheap. You can't beat $2-$5 Vittoria Corsa/Open tires that look like new take-offs.

But the guys I rode up with did even better. All were worked-in-bike-shops-in-the-70's types, and they spotted fab deals I would have missed. Like a Schwinn Voyageur in decent shape for $30 - with Campy con dente Pista pedals (what?!), and two U08s for $10@ with all sorts of Suntour/Stronglight upgrades. The piece-de-resistance was a ~1979 Gitane Tandem with TA cranks, Campy pedals/headset, Phil hubs, two nice Brooks seats, Cyclone RD in ready to ride condition for $250. It was quite the Tetris puzzle fitting all into the van.
