Winning baseballs end up in museums or collector's hands. Pieces of goalposts end up on the living room mantel. Old Batmobiles end up in showrooms.

So what happens to bikes after they were used to win famous races?

The local Bottechia dealer claims to have the Time Trial bike used by Greg LeMond in the last stage, the crtitical time trial stage, that won him the 1989 Tour De France (by a margin of 8 seconds).
