I don't know we're to start just WOW ! You said that you sell some stuff that you have. I am and have been looking for a set of motomags for a mongoose tandem I have so if you ever come across a pair like the yellow set? Pm me with a price Thanks for the time and keep up the good work
And that Torker is sweet

 

I actually still have those yellow motomags. I'll do some research and get back to you.

 

I'll try to get some more pics of the Torker and fork after work this evening.

Finally got around to taking pics of the fork on the Torker...

Welds look decent but push in caps at the ends of the fork legs remind me of Team Murray. lol... What's the verdict?

Stopped by the warehouse today. They have a few things of marginal value. The only one I brought home was the Mongoose Expert. If any of you guys are interested in any of these bikes or even parts on the bikes let me know and I'll try to pick them up next time I'm there. Too often I bring stuff home and it just sits because nobody wants it.

Expert:

GT Interceptor with Redline v-bars, Suntour stem, Tange fork, Pro Class front wheel, Shimano pedals (are they SX or DX)? Sunshine high flange rear hub (didn't notice a stamp on the rim).

Spraybombed 86 Schwinn Predator Freeform Z. If it still has the original wheels that should be a nice set of Araya 7X's protected by the wheel covers.

Haro Group 2 and Hoffmann Sugarbaby...

It looks like Haro used leftover stock 85-86 freestyle bars on this bike.

I haven't updated this thread in a while. I kinda was keeping it rolling just for the sake of having my own private rolling history. Does anyone else even care? If not, this will be my last post here and I'll just keep the archive on flickr.

 

Most recently couple huge boxes of NOS old school rims were donated by the widow of an old bike shop owner. I sold of a few sets so far but if you're looking for something in particular let me know. There are a bunch of orphans.

 

A few of the bikes and parts that have come in...

Good stuff - where does the extra special stuff like this go to again ?

Does it get sold separately. Sorry don't remember or feel like searching.

The only thing I kept is the white Redline RL-20II from these pictures. I paid $300 for it before I became involved in a larger capacity.

Sweet deal!

It has become my burden to sell it. It was fun in the beginning, but like I said, it has been burdensome as of late. Just so much stuff and one of my least favorite things to do is pack stuff in boxes and ship. I keep reminding myself that it's for a great cause though and all is well.  :)

I finally got around to picking up the Mach One. It's a super nice all original bike. I also got some pics of this old Schwinn. I haven't decided yet if that one is worth trying to sell or just ship it. I'll at least pull the mx1000 off of it.
