I visit a bike shop no matter where I find one and usually strike up a conversation about old bikes and parts to see if they have any for sale. Probably sounds pretty familiar to most of you. I encountered a shop in northern Jersey where I walked in and struck up a conversation and was immediately told to leave. When I asked what was wrong the owner just said "I do not like dealing with your type". and would offer no more conversation. I don't believe I spent 5 minutes before I was asked to go. I can only think that one of the crude dudes that frequent some of these forums must screwed this guy and now he has soured on all collectors. Tell us your war stories about seeking out old bikes and parts. I have not been back there since.

sounds like that guy doesn't need to take your money.go to friendlier dealers and do most of your bussiness with them.once they get to know you and your friendly demeanor,they start bringing things in from the basement or the back room.be a loyal customer and you will reap rewards.tom.

quess i am lucky, i have a couple shops that give my phone number out when someone comes in with an old bike to sell. i also have help them with some parts and one shop asked for some bikes to hang in the shop just for show.

Only one shop here will work on old bikes. None have any parts or interest. I went into an ex Schwinn shop turned lawnmower repair and the owner was pretty put off at first. He said he had been hounded by collectors for several years.

There's an old Schwinn shop near me and the guy has tons of stuff. And he'll sell it.

Problem is, he thinks everything is made of gold. Like $400 for a used Krate front wheel.

well.heres mine, an older guy would find these bikes and he sat up at the flea market i worked at,if i liked the bike i never asked him to come down on price,i paid it,well one day some one fed him a line of crap about any old bike is bigbucks the his prices went way up and he got hacked off when i looked at them because i (took advantage of him suposedly) eventually he quit looking for old bikes because he never sold another one because he wanted like $200.00 for a schwinn 24" hollywood (bent fenders/rusty/wrong seat/you know),i love these guys they'll eat up the story about a peice of iron is worth hundreds then you give a fair price and your the bad guy,the bad guy is the one that fed them the line of horse dung,theres one i know of right now the same exact way,he has a pre war schwinn w/springer
brush painted orange with REAL house paint not poof can
H.O.U.S.E. P.A.I.N.T. all the rest is rust fenders are not even salvageable no chainguard,and you can have that little beauty for $500.00,I guess thats where that other manuer of "patina" comes into play,its definatly origonal "patina" house paint and all.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Has this happened to you ? posted by Cam on 2/15/2001 at 5:14:02 AM
Yeah, there are lots of people who think the old bike they found at the dump, or in their basement, or at a yard sale is made of gold. It seems right now anyone with anything that says 'Schwinn' on it thinks it's worth millions.
It's true, some of them are worth a lot. But I'm not going to pay $200 for a rusty 1980s Schwinn Lightweight.

On the other hand, I've seen really good bikes go for one one hundreth of their true value at flea markets and yard sales.

And as for going into a bike shop and looking for old parts - forget it around here. There's nothing left beyond 1990s parts. Storage is expensive and shops need to get rid of the older stuff (like a 1990s crank is old stuff!).

In my area the shops charge you $5 for a bike box - which they were going to recycle anyway!

Bike shops are few and far between out here in the frozen North (ND), so I stop at every hardware store I come across. Sometimes I get lucky - sometimes I don't. Last Fall I stopped at one and the guy said "Where were you a year ago? I took two big boxes of new parts for old bikes to the dump!". Waaaah.

Flea market quotations...

Girl's Spaceliner frame with rusty wheels and wrong parts $150 ("it's a old Sweein" the guy said)

71 Fairlady $400

Rusty prewar girl's ??? with all kinds of parts $100 (same discription as above)

I don't see many bikes at the flea market but they are high.

The truth is these Schwinn shop owners are tired of guys coming in and offering pennies on the dollar for collectable items.

I have never tried to get a shop to come down on a price. I have asked the price on items and bought it or left it alone.

From the other perspective, I worked in a shop for 8 years that was in business from '52. There was quite a bit of old stuff laying here and there. It was nice to help people looking for new brake disks for a bendix red band kickback, or original Phantom decals. Sometime in the late 80's, the collectors started coming in. They would show up two-three times a week. Wanted to walk through the whole shop and wanted everything. Had no idea what they were looking for, but wanted it all. Would offer $2 for every decal we had on hand - nothing in particular, just everything on hand. Happened again and again. Instead of helping people on the floor looking to buy merchandise, these collectors expected us to spend hours giving tours and haggling over everything in the back room. Eventually it got to be too much, one of the mechanics that took my position after I left did a major cleanout and tossed everything more than 10 years old. S/A 4spds., Mattatuck, New Departure, Bendix kickback parts, all in the dumpster. Said he got more satisfaction tossing the stuff than seeing it on Ebay described as *MINT*, *NOS*, L@@K, MINT, MINT, MINT!!! The dealers kept the stuff on hand to fix the old bikes that came in, the collectors took advantage of them by buying the stuff to resell and offered pannies on the dollar. IMHO if the "collectors" would have been a little less greedy, there could have been a lot more dealers willing to help people track down the stuff they need. Also, when "collectors" describe an old, used 20 X 1.75 tire as a schwinn sting-ray tire and I quote "not sure if it's NOS or not" it doesn't lend any credibility to the collector's market at all. It also doesn't help when prominent collectors (specifically one that owns a very upscale shop in Chicago) quotes me a price on a used raised white letter slick for $100, the following week a co-worker located a shop with 20 tires - the same one - still wrapped in plastic at a local shop going out of business, this same "collector" offered him $5 a piece, as the tires weren't worth anything. Apparently the going rate dropped $95 in one week. The greed that has been shown by the "collectors" has done nothing but alienate bike shop owners, too bad, but they had it coming.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Has this happened to you ? posted by todjob on 2/17/2001 at 2:44:35 PM
well.....the term you use as a collector dosent discribe me at all,I go into a bike shop if i cant afford it i put it on layaway or pass on it,the people you are talking about are parts scabs,these are the same guys that buy a perfect bicycle for $5.00 and strip it to sell on ebay and when anybody says "why did you strip it" the answer is always the same "you wouldent pay for the whole bike so i had to strip it to make any money" forget the fact he paid $5.00 for it and wanted $200.00 out of it,i just love those guys
couldent get their exuberent price out of it so their not making any money,on ebay,awhile back a schwinn b-6 or phantom (or that class) sold for less than $75.00 the guy had a fit that sold it and said it wasent fair market value,as like the rest of these guys they dont understand that the fair market value is the agreed price between buyer and seller at that perticular moment,not what the last guy got,or out of a priceguide that was published in california where they pay too mutch for everything,a person recently contacted me on a comment i made on here about the price of the bicycles they had for sale,first thing they said was that they had seen others on the internet for twice that amount ($500.00) I would bet money that they havent sold them,I just recently brought home a load of bicycles that for the most part are iron but there is a few good peices on them,a guy down the street saw me bringing them home and asked what i was going to do with them,on hearing the fact that i was going to strip them he informed me that i had schwinns in there and they brought alot of money (were talking trashed 10 sp.'s here)and he kept bugging me about it so finally I said Tell ya what I'll take $5.00 each for every schwinn I had in that pile after i got what i wanted off of them,he is now the proud owner of 9 junk bikes,i mean junk, bent wheels rusty the whole deal
im sure i'll see them at a yard sale or flea market next season for $40.00 ea.or more,I tried and tried to tell him they was junk but he knew better.

   RE:MISC:   Has this happened to you ? posted by ExBikeShopWorker on 2/18/2001 at 1:20:49 AM
The truth of the matter is that most collectors only collect stuff that is worth MONEY. To hell if it's a piece of history or not, it has to be worth MONEY. Ever since the eighties, the fun of collecting has been replaced by the dollar sign. Every collector I have ever met will buy whatever they can get their hands on if the price is less than the going rate. If the price is the same, or higher - than it's obvious that the seller thinks that his turds are made of gold. The only person I met that demanded he pay the going rate on a rare collectable was James Hurd, of course he had Schwinn's wallet in his pocket at the time.

As far as the "agreed upon price" garbage, what a hoot. I don't care if it's legal, I don't care if it will stand up in court, I don't care if it's capitalism and the "American Way". If I "discovered" an oil field under a person's house in a spot where the land value was rock bottom, and paid the owner "market price" - what he and I agreed upon - and turned around a made a mint off of it, you can bet that he sure isn't going to have a good disposition and be willing to deal the next time he sells his house. The "collectors" alienated one of the largest sources of help, nostalgia, and everything that makes collecting fun just so they could put MINT, MINT, NOS, NOS, L@@K, L@@K, L@@K, L@@K, L@@K!!!!!!!!!! on their Ebay ads.

To all of the collectors that merely try and preserve a piece of the tradition of cycling, you have my apologies. It's also interesting to note that this behavior disappears when a collector steps away from the Schwinn logo.....

   RE:MISC:   Has this happened to you ? posted by Steve on 2/18/2001 at 9:14:14 AM
hey exbikeshopworker, I guess you've never checked the prices on Hot Wheels. Top quality, mint condition items, IN ANY COLLECTABLE HOBBY, bring very large $$$. Try buying an original Stickley chair, Tiffany lamp, Mickey Mantle rookie card, '67 big block Corvette, etc, etc. The prices are being driven up by DEMAND for these things. If you don't have a buyer, you can't get your asking price. It's insulting to suggest that if I own a bike shop for the last forty years, I should sell my dead stock to anyone who walks in the door, for pennies on the dollar, for the love of the hobby. I guess Aunt Bee should sell her 90 year old Stickley chair and end table for $100 too, even though she knows it's worth $30,000. Just to help out the hobby you know.

Those awful people known as "collectors" (shudder!) raise the awareness of people as to the value of things. Without this awareness, most of the stuff we're fighting over would have been tossed in dumpsters as worthless a long time ago. Then the remaining stuff would be in even higher demand and the prices correspondingly higher.

   RE:YOU GUYS ARE MISS THE POINT posted by todjob on 2/18/2001 at 5:04:24 PM
I beg to differ thats how i made money for years in little town dealerships they would throw that stuff upstairs and forget it,and i would buy it by the truckload,6months ago i went to a lil dealership in wisconcin and bought N.O.S. 78 corvette parts,same with some bike shops,not all of them toss the parts some just stack the stuff in the attic and forget about it.

   A story of a different kind posted by Brian the Guidman on 2/21/2001 at 11:28:30 AM
There are few bike shops in town and one of the two is currently going out of business. I have been into both of them. Not to buy up all they`re old stuff, but for services and leads. The one going out of business was not a Schwinn shop, but the guy told me when I asked that they never EVER put an Atom hub on a cruiser, Hmm. And at that time he was selling a repop Phantom on E-bay. He had a bunch of old Schwinn bikes(mostly girls stuff) on display hanging high on the wall and he knew it all(if you asked HIM)so I didn`t go back for a long while. I found that cruiser Atom hub at Team Bikes in mint cond. for $75. ready to mount! And went in and rubbed his nose in it for a min. The other bike shop in town is just completely lame.I prepaid ordered some Sun Rims big mammoth wides in steel not aluminum, I mentioned I wanted steel no less than 3 times. They arrived as ordered in ALUMINUM! When I mentioned this to the manager who was the one handing them to me, all he did was look at my reciept and say well it looks like you`re all paid and ready to go! Can you believe it??? I took them but was not happy about the $130 for the wrong crap. I don`t like to sweat the little stuff. I tried to have them lace the Atom hub onto the big mammoth wide rim using a 4 cross and after 2 tries it is still leaning up against the wall in my puter room (affraid to use it the way it is laced(pittifull). They also sold me incorrect tubes twice in the same day and all the guy had to say about it was "am I bad?" can you believe it ??? I ordered some bear trap pedals and prepaid,they never called and when I went in a few weeks later, they were hanging on the display rack with all the other unpaid for stuff(gee good thing I had my reciept huh?)The only shop I had any luck with was an old Schwinn shop 30 miles away, I was looking for the big fat spokes for my Atom hub, the old guy said he might have some old stock. He came back with an old box but he didn`t have too many and were all diff. lengths, so we never got to the price at all. So I had Team Bikes make me some 12 guage stainless, not quite big enough but they worked well using brass washers on the hooked end to make sure they seated well in the hub. I just want to say that I`m not a guy who buys up everything in sight, but I have had the best luck and most exellent results finding the parts I need right here on the net. I`ve gained volumes of info. and insight from a lot of really swell cats. I don`t believe it`s the "crude dudes" on forums that messed up the bike shops for collectors. But rather the "so called collectors" the capitalist ones that did it. I only buy parts I will use or have an interest in. If I sell something it is because I will never use it or am not interested in it at all. Like I gave away a set of 10 spd. deraileurs and shifters and mount for the cost of shipping not too long ago. So who is the collector and who is the capitalist goon?? I see them buying Krate shifters then selling Krate shifters, same with Guards,Bars, Seats, anything. They don`t use them and never intended to, and they are supposed to be "collectors"?? Product in, product out, $$$$ made! I think they mistook collector for distributor lol. But at any rate as soon as I teach myself to lace up a 4 cross Atom hub and get ahold of a couple particular tools, I may never step into another know it all know nothing bike shop again. At least not in town here.

The POINT is, let Joice ask anything she wants for her bikes. They are, after all, her bikes. If she finds a buyer, more power to her. We don't need a self-appointed value setter. Example: You decide to sell your house, and you ask $150,000. Would you want someone to post a sign on the front door saying "$150,000....ouch!"? I bet not. It's just not polite.
