First off, a hearty "Thanks!" for starting this topic, as it's something I've been wondering about myself. I stumbled into C&V about six years ago, and it didn't take long to discover that parting...

My friend met the seller a couple of times this past year and has picked through the hoard. Lots of decent, serviceable bikes left but no diamonds in the rough. The seller was the neighborhood...

The guy I bought it from was not the previous owner / rider, but he did have quite a large used / vintage car scrap heap, um, collection in his fields and shed. My guess is this was part of a large...

Very, very cool. Do you have plans to build it back up?

Hi all,

I took a gamble on this bike without exactly knowing what it was, I just knew it was pretty old. There's no decals and the head badge is missing. It came with a Campagnolo drivetrain -...

Putting this here for posterity research. I think this rendition is the last gasp of the 1975-76 bikes from Liberia. It's pretty much in "as found" condition, though I did put better alloy wheels and...

Here is my only "vintage" bike left in the stable, a mid 90s steel CX bike with a neat ovalized/shaped down tube. I like the geometry and the fact it can take 38s, though I only have some cheap 34s...
