    Kinda cool American picker Mike Wolfe gave a shout out to the cabe and the awesome @39zep Jeff Guyer on Instagram today. Check out his recent 37 RMS find.

    Great. Now a bunch of newbies will have "family heirlooms" 60-70's lightweights posted in the classifieds section.

    Very cool!
    It's always nice, when a fellow enthusiast of the 1937 Roadmaster Supreme helps a brother out.
    Jeff has done more hands on research of these bikes, than just about anybody.
    Great looking bike, Mike!
    I can't wait to hear the story on that one.
    Amazing find for sure!

    I think you have to watch the show for what it is--entertainment.

    I love Pickers!
    They do the dirty work, then I pay them for the cool stuff they find.

    Hey I enjoy the show, If I can watch tv and see a wingbar and or an RMS or any other cool old sh*t that's a win in my book. Sounds like some people are just jealous.

    Would love to see more pictures of the bike and it's serial number. One to add to the registry.

    I think he paid $1,000 for that wingbar and valued it at Maybe $1500 which if anything was a low value. And then I'm pretty sure he called Jerry Peters out for being over priced on his bikes. So I don't agree with you. There are several people on here that think everything they have is gold and there stuff sits in the for sale section for months on end. Those are the people you should complain about.

    I personally could care less what some garage sale guy thinks his Schwinn Breeze is worth.
    We're the ones that are setting the prices on collectable bikes.
    The American Pickers have had no affect on the price range at all.
    They typically get the stuff artificially cheap.
    I'm sure it's all for theatre, but $1,000 dollars for a original uncirculated Double Duty Autocycle doesn't sound like driving the price up to me.
    Several of the guys right here offered upwards of $8,000 for that bike the night that episode aired.
    Talk about driving the price up.
    The only thing the American Pickers have done, is increase people's awareness that this stuff has some value and should be spared.
    I think that's a good thing, so I enjoy the show, and watch it whenever I can.
    It scares my wife though, because she thinks our place is going to end up looking like some of the mega stashes they encounter.
    I tell her not to worry, because that will never happen. Lol!

    When the show dies and it will.... he and his buddies will be back sluming it at swaps... better save your coins up I don’t see a tv star in your future. As far a jelous is concerned.... no. Just tired of the “pickers”syndrome every weekend.

    I like Mike Wolfe... He has done a lot to promote interest in the Antique Bicycle Collecting Hobby- both by bringing old bikes to the attention of younger viewers and by sharing the histories of some of the companies- from High Wheels and Safeties to Balloon Bikes and even to collectible racing bikes of his youth. This show has no doubt made young people become aware and interested in all sorts of Antiques, including Bicycles - which makes them start to look for these things. No doubt at least a few of You on this forum have benefited from this exposed interest which brings more old Bikes out of hiding and to the marketplace. I agree that the show is scripted and contrived for entertainment value. But Mike didn`t have to add Bicycles to the content-- he could just buy them all and take them home without showing us.
    But, "FRANK", I don`t like at all... Just my two cents...-------God Bless,---Cowboy
