    60 complete classic road bikes plus another 15 framesets for $35,000. That's about $580 for each bike and getting the 15 framesets for free.

    not really, I would have to be institutionalized if I bought all of those bikes, not to mention my wife would divorce me.

    Those bikes have been sitting for years in a damp basement, I can't imagine the internal and external rusting issues going on.

    Closeup pics looked pretty good. Dunno if that's a basement or a castle wall! Damned room has at least a 20' ceiling and probably closer to a 24' ceiling going by scaling the stacked bikes on the walls. Supposedly the owner is some majorly well known German collector. I never heard of the guy, but you can Google up his name easily enough.

    Free shipping?? :D

    Yeah that would be hoarding.. ;)

    If I get arrested and work a house confinement deal I'll would get them... If I work on them for like 20 years I might make a 60 euro profit!! :D
