    That is cool, Gary. It's good to see those old classics displayed with some respect. I'd like to spend a day in there myself. How's his prices?

    There's a place in Denver that probably has a bigger collection but the problem is the the bikes are all in piles. Stacked on top of each other, six and eight bikes deep. The back yard, the building next door and the basements are all crammed with bikes of every vintage. He has some really old and great stuff but I think he's a horder because his prices are off the wall high even though he has a lot to choose from. $700.00 for a rusty Roy Rogers bike with no back wheel or handlebars. That's ridiculous.

    The place you went to looks a lot better. I'm envious.

    OH Tom his bikes are put out in nice displays ... on the second floor its just amazing , I swear Deb an I just walked in circles for over an hour you'd get a good look at one an then notice one you somehow missed in the back ground .
    an his prices for the classics down in the store front arent bad your pic of any one of the lemon peeler schwinns for 200 bucks I think tere was about 7 of them , an they were really clean bikes .

    Gary, I've wanted to see that place. Been buying stuff from them for a couple years on e-bay. Good products and service.
