Not sure what drives us to hoard stuff - there's a theory which goes that the stuff we collect is symbolic of what we miss most in our lives for example;

1. Collecting and displaying books to comfort ourselves in our cleverness and to hide insecurities.
2. Collecting toys to relive our lost youth and innocence.
3. And sadly egg collectors trying to literally 'get a life'

I think it's a load of old cock - what do folks think? If it is true why do we collect old bikes and what need it is addressing?
