Couldn't you tell I was a bit underwhelmed by that one we went to a bit back, J4tH?
At this stage I might be a bit too catatonic to care much at the committee meeting. Planning another Toodyay 200 Friday evening. Hopefully not as drawn out as the last a couple of weeks back.
Since I keep misplacing my common sense down the shed, I guess I'll have to borrow someone elses off the internet.
Another auction this Saturday 14th March in Welshpool. Over a hundred bikes, half of them BSOs and some darn ugly, but there are some good road and MTBs there plus a Giant Halfway folder and a Specialized electric assist bike with wire basket. Lot 52, I didn't know that Ripcurl was a bike brand.
Or you could just go do something with Bikeweek?
The bikes were going for craaaazy amounts... Huffy's in very poor condition, cheap at nearly $200... Diamondbacks for 300 to 500. Some cheap bikes ( $80-ish ), but many were in poor condition - you could do a run around on council cleanup days and pick up for free most of what was going at the auction for around $200.
Actually, I think you will probably find most of what was sold today being included in the next council cleanup.....
An auctioneer friend is always amazed at the frenzy some people get caught up in at auctions, especially on weekend auctions
Another one on this Saturday. Item 74 is a carbon BMC roadbike, 75 is a Specialized Comp Roubaix, 83 is a Giant TCR Advanced so there are some high end bikes there. Item 99 I don't know what to say
Another Perth auction this Saturday 17th October and for once they've posted the details up early. Item 54 in the catalogue is a rickshaw, anyone want to become self-employed in the cycle industry? Not much else there, the usual BSO's, some separate bike wheels, a Merida racer that was probably locked up once by its front wheel only.
