What do you reckon chaps ?
My Son has got a job working in an industrial unit which buys and sorts out any metals, i know the scrap business is booming
but christ you should see what comes and goes through this buisness, my Son see's on average 50 bikes a day stripped and broken
up many which are mountain bikes and just lately he's spotting good retro road bikes going through, the stuff you see in the back
of a garage and lost and the owners not giving it a thought if they are actually worth far more than giving it to the bloody scrap man.
Today my Son came home with some real goodies... a pair of road racing wheels and in my eyes were worth a bomb !
Campag' hubs/stainless steel spokes/mavic GP4 complete with rotted tubs/Regina CX block.
Full set of high quality spanners 2mm right up to 30mm, still in their un-used packaging.
Pair of really mint MTB wheel-set including mint foldable tyres,really filthy but after a wash he swapped them over onto his MTB...lol
I've told him if he spots anything that says Campag on the equipment he's to put it to one side.
Two weeks ago an old chap died and his widow phoned the scrap dealer and he collected 20 vintage road bikes,
my Son tried to stop the gaffer from breaking the bikes up but didn't succeed he just un-bolted and threw
steel frames into the 'steel bin' and alloy parts into the 'alloy bin' my Son spotted that every bike was high quality but did his gaffer give a shit ? No he didn't.
Why are some people so stupid to throw these things away ? Ebay the things
I hate RED DWARF
