Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
in other news, welcome back Toff
Spectacular. collection of a lifetime. That Drillium Ottusi is just ridiculous, they even put holes in the saddle! The hours and hours and hours involved in that bike are mind boggling.
...They're all big too.
I call dibs on the Herse and the curly stays Hetchins.
And take a look at the lugs on the purple '52 Hetchins track bike. Psychedelic.
Someone has spent a lot of time collecting and piecing these together. Hope they get ridden on nice days.
Intrigue abounds! It certainly has the more-to-this-than-meets-the-eye feel about it; whole pile of ostensibly beautiful bikes, all with flat (or no) tyres and rather casually dumped in front of a cheap looking panel wall. And then there's the stratospheric staring bids...
I actually think the start bids are pretty reasonable. The bikes are in awesome condition.
I'm with sss - US $2,475.00 seems reasonable for a Campagnolo Gran Sport rear "deailleur"
. . . . . . .
Obviously I was only talking about the bikes
These auctions have def drummed up a lot of conversation between the knoweledgables on CR List.... But the general consensus is that they won't make 1/3 let alone 1/2 of the starting bids....
Also quite strange that this seller is selling them all at the same time and flooding the market... Thought it would be much smarter to drip feed them but anyway....
Same should be happening soon with a whole heap of Bikes from a French collection that was recently raped by 2 eBay sellers after the collector past away and his widow didn't understand what she had...
It must be the time to liquidate your collection - Richard Sachs is selling his set of Campagnolo derailleurs
No doubt in anticipation of the classic parts adjustment of '13, precipitated in part by the great fixie crash of '12...
If anyone has or knows of a bike sporting a retro shimano DX group that would be cool. Can't find one anywhere...
It doesn't look like he's touting much by way of provenance (except on that 72 you mentioned) aside from "this is a 19xx such and such". Am I missing something? Are they the wrong years? wrong parts lists? Looks like absolute top dollar starts, nothing I'm in the market for, and I'm no super-retrophile so I could be missing the obvious.

he's famous so ppl pay a premium.
"this is richard sachs' derailleur!"
Not retro, but still spewing I missed this on the weekend, went for a steal. Very close by and my collection is still missing a track bike.
Saw: "Reserve the right to remove listing prior to end of auction as its listed for sale elsewhere." and expected it to be pulled before auction end.

$200 that was a steel. Those Mavic Ellipse track wheels are worth more than that by themselves.
Tis guy thinks he's done this bike a favour.
It’s more like our thoughts are thinking us than we are thinking them.
Miyata 414 probably? Not worth the start price with that paint job. If it had have been original, maybe, but def. not worth the BIN.

Going for the motor pace track bike look?
It's actually a stayer bike

for a stayer, it sure is a goer!
Right. Obviously I forgot the old saying!!
It's not a bike, but it is junk at it's price is on the rise! Good reading for a giggle.
