    ...in my own basement! While looking for the missing pieces to my girl's '38 Twinflex(chain,headset bearings, front hub guts and saddle), I found all kinds of stuff I forgot I had. I really need to start organizing:pensive:
    JUST MAKING IT CLEAR! NONE OF THESE PARTS ARE FOR SALE!

    Tank belongs to my Imperial project. Besides that just my Colson stash for future projects. Found a repop Commander stem I forgot I picked up. Probably end up using it unless I find another real one.

    I should add that these are parts I've picked up along the way for ongoing projects. Not really for sale. Now I just need to get to it!

    You have a basement?! I didn't even get to see the garage when I visited. I don't even remember seeing much of anything, my vision was kind of blurry for most of the night.

    Sometimes picking your own stuff is the best! I was about to buy a set of Torrington 10s and found a box with two pair in it!:D

    Bet your wife has the same thing to say about you when she talks about your garage.
