    Vintage Shelby Rollfast art deco STREAMLINED train light balloon tire bicycle
    Delta type made in U.S.A.

    Please view the attached links ( above) and feel free to bid on my auctions.



    I’ve come to realize that my stuff for sale doesn’t really have an active market on the CABE ( rarely sells), mainly because of the high cost of shipping from Canada. It’s actually equally as high shipping to me from the U.S.A. (those that have shipped to me can vouch for that!!)

    My bicycle projects get pretty expensive with the shipping costs/price of parts. Also, the Canadian dollar is only worth about .67- .70 cents to the U.S. dollar. Ouch!!!

    Buying is crazy expensive for me, and when the cash flow (always) gets low, I must sell. Luckily I sell in U.S. dollars ( Ebay/Cabe) so I sometimes do ok on selling end, but usually I buy HIGH, and sell LOW….Dang…Oh well.

    I love the CABE, and am having fun, so that’s what counts.

    Please view the attached links and feel free to bid on my auctions. NO RESERVE, start at $9.99, may go CHEAP. NOTE the high shipping cost and factor that in if you care to bid. Thanks, Bob

    Bob, it happens to me some times too, I earn a couple of bucks in one sale, I lost a couple in other. That's all right, as you say I'm not in this to make money, but to buy and sell what I want while having fun and I'm getting to know more people in this hobby. I've made a couple of friends here and that's what counts at the end.

    Yeah thanks Bob, we're Ok now. I have no phone service and there's no gasoline in the city but we're safe. We're starting to clean the mess and repairing the broken fences. Lots of work to do.

    While we bicker over a $100 light, and losing a few bucks, people in Texas and Florida have nowhere to live.

    I agree. My heart goes out to these people. I have to keep living as well, and that includes selling things to pay my bills. At the end of the day, possessions ( hobby stuff) means nothing if you lose the essentials to live and have no love or health in your life. Amen Brother.
