£220 + £20(?) import charges for some Kooka cranks, after a year of sitting on my desk I realized they were different lengths!

For me it would be a early Bontrager fillet brazed U-brake fork.

Exact $ escapes me, certainly above $500 US.

Expensive, but worth every penny to me.

Unfortunately I can't justify any of mine as being parts needed to complete a build, they've all just been irresistible indulgences!
-Lots £'s paid for NOS vintage mech's for the derailleur collection, esp. a boxed LMDS ..Westpine hubs. More recently, £35 for a 800-Bike-Pro buyer's guide and £30 for Carmichael Ti jockey wheels. :oops:

250 GBP for MD XC Pro cranks. NOS, so won't be used anytime soon... :facepalm: But it was the only missing part from the NOS groupset, which is kind of of pointless having if the cranks are missing from it and I've already spent 600 GBP for the rest :twisted: :facepalm:

Flew to Poland, then hire car to the Kalingrad border for a Ti frame.

£120 for NIB Rolls saddle with AL back plate.

Obscene money for NIB Pace RC31 Carbon & Ti fork in 420 axle-to-crown variety.
