Regarding that huge "all or none, take it away" pit of potentially classic stuff up for grabs in Jersey- Now, say if one person won the auction and had some friends or other listmembers hire or borrow a truck and some muscles to go through that pile listed on e-bay.....

Who would get dibs on what? Would the winner of the auction get the 1971 Cinelli he found just hidden under the rusty Varsity? Or, rather, would the one with the truck get the five NOS cobalto brakesets? Would the borrowed hands get the Campag toolkit w/ the French taps, "because you wouldn't have been able to get any of this without me, dude?" Hmmm.., Just seems like a catfight ready to serve. Or would you spread everything out on a gym floor and draw straws for the first pick? Who would bring beer? Who would bring the tetanus shots? Perhaps a metal detector wanding before leaving just to make sure no one pocketed that brass open-c lever set. What lever set? I didn't see a lever set...
