In preparation for my upcoming move I am ruthlessly cleaning out the piles.

Some interesting bikes and all the parts were put up with minimum starting bids and no reserve. http://ebay.com/<blah>

A lot of this was at the Cirque. Some neat stuff- A prewar Schwinn Superior, a metric threaded Zeus ally freewheel.
