2020 Rescues….what did you bring back into the Hobby?
Its easy to buy a bike from a fellow collector, but I was going through my 2020 bicycle acquisitions and realized that most of them were saves, which I consider to be a bicycle not in a collectors hands and destined for an unknown future. I was able to bring quite a few bikes back into the hobby for re-sale, or into my shop of horrors during this strange year. My business has been closed since 3/16/20, and I was still able to acquire all these bikes through sales of other bikes, parts sales, or trades. Here are my favorite rescues from this past suck year….what were you able to rescue for the hobby in 2020?

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
My 3 favorites that were fresh finds, 40 ranger and 41 autocycle both came from original owners family, 39 BC came from an antique dealer who was selling it for original family but had no idea of what it was and was marketing it as garden art

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
1898 Ladies Chainless "Quadrant".
Discovered on a rubbish tip over 20 years ago then left in a barn ever since, before being given to me.
Pretty rare, only around 6 known, 4 of which are in museum collections.
It's going to need an enormous amount of work, but ultimately worth it to see it rolling again one day......

It'll be used for parts & or parted out. I have rode it and even cleaned it up some but not something I need to keep complete unfortunately:disappointed:

That green & black Columbia ;) I'd be content to have it in the stable & build it back to correct as I could. Jus' always liked them
