Re: What does NOS mean.

my second comment wasnt making fun as it was implying that this thread you have created could get heated. there are a few different subjects on the museum that are a little touchy, mainly because they mean many different things to people in this hobby.

It's not that, man.  There is a good bit of debate and consternation about what is and is not actually "new, old stock."  If it was just mounted on a show bike and never ridden, does that still count, etc.

Re: What does NOS mean.

That depends on how much money it costs and how hard it is to find, lol. For some people it means that the item is still in its original package, for others it means that no one has ever used it.

Some people will sell parts as NOS, but the truth is they did install it on a bike but maybe just never rode the bike. roll

Sorry just touchy sometimes. I've had bikes but never really built them until now.

Re: What does NOS mean.

To me "NOS" means exactly that unsold new stock. So the very minute you've bought it, never mind mounted it. It's now no longer "new" it's now "used", though you could consider it "Mint"

Re: What does NOS mean.

If I pull a 36-year-old Huffy Thunder Z2 with Dia-Compe brakes and Araya rims out of its original box after just having broken the original seal, would any of its parts be NOS?

What if you're a dealer? Everything you sell is now used?
