Yes all the time. It's fun for me and quite habit forming.


Winchester 70's era. for the bluemels fenders. Bridgestone Spica 1983, for the Alloy wheel set and "Randnner" bars. Austro-Daimler late '70's damaged frame, for all the cool parts it had

There have also been many times that I've been tempted but couldn't justify bringing home a hunk of 25" steel for a worn leather saddle or some such.
