A sort of homecoming...
A sort of homecoming...
Quick background: I joined this site early spring 2007, after "trolling" for about 6 months, looking for info on GT serial #s & restoration tips. I wanted to bring back to life my original chrome 1984 GT Mach One, which I still own & will never give up. I was a regular visitor to this site, posting my own resto tips when I could, & buying a SERIOUS amount of stuff from other members. Around mid-2009, I had to take a break, as my buying got out of hand in my blind quest to build a 1985 Haro Master (which is in the Museum). Also, life happens: work got busy, & before you know it, itâ€™s been over a year since my last post.
So Iâ€™m back to the Museum, & thereâ€™s been many changes, most of which I agree with, namely the yearly charge to become a Pro Member & sell stuff. During these holidays, Iâ€™ve been soaking in this site, reacquainting myself with the Forums, namely the Catchall. I see that some of the core members that I first met are still here. Some have become Mods. What is probably the starkest change: the amount of bikes posted to the Museum. Wow! Some seriously nice rides are here. People have definitely stepped up their game. Itâ€™s great to see such enthusiasm still alive & well.
As for purchasing stuff, Iâ€™m sure most of you can relate. I ended up building 12 completes, & have frame/fork sets for 15 more. Yes â€“ I have a problem. So in the interest of giving back to the Community that gave me so much, Iâ€™ve decided to sell off about 90% of this stuff. My goal is to post all of it here & not on ebay, since this is the site for true collectors. Hopefully I wonâ€™t have to go the ebay route. I purchased nearly everything I have from members right here on this site. Iâ€™ll be selling everything below what I paid for it. Iâ€™ll start with the "low-end" stuff & work my way on up. All funds will help to build the one ride I still want: a chrome 1983 GT Nora Cup.
This is more of a philosophical rant than anything. Iâ€™m glad the Museum is still here, & it looks very strong. Hope to catch up with members Iâ€™ve lost touch with, & maybe make a few new friends. Cheers.
