Well if you guys only knew.....................What a ''MAJOR PACK RATs DELIGHT IS! I've seen it, I've walked it and I have touched it! When first visiting this place, he the owner hands me a 2 liter bottle of warm Pepsi and says here drink! A, do you have a cup! He says a cup? You drink like this, in 2 or 3 drinks his bottle was empty! A bear claw followed soon after, CHOMP!......All at once and it was gone! I was saying to myself, darn what in the hell did I get myself into here?!?! Then he said we go and meet the others for some beers and lunch! Geeze! This guy just slammed a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi and a Dolly Madison tray of bear claws! Geeze! I was already wondering whar dinner was going to be! So we downed a couple of liters and had some food with a few others, then a boat pulls up to the Marina! And his friends are visiting!.........Ok, line up the beers again!.........I said I'll have a coke! They said nothing doing! Your going to have another beer! One of the ladies stands up grabs all of the left over beers slams it into my glass and says ''DRINK UP!'' After a few hours he says we go and look now! As we're staggering across the RR tracks he says here you go!........Handing me the keys to his operations, I have a party to go to tonight so I'm going to go home and get a little sleep first. I said you trust me?!?! He said! What! Are your going to steal the whole place. Then he says OH! COME! We go and look in here at the old train station!........I said what's in there! He said what do you think, bike stuff of course!.............Ok!.........Down to the basement!.........Ending with 3 big Rivoted doors!..........What's this?? He said the ''BOMB SHELTER!'' 1st door opens, track goodies, frames bikes and parts!.......He grabs into a box and pulls out a hand full and says! THINK YOU CAN SELL THESEs!.....41t NR road chainrings!............He said I don't think you can sell them all!?!?! I looked in the box! And ''WOW!'' there was alot!....Of course I was saying, sure can! 2nd door opens and there cases and cases of old peugeot black and white jersys, the same ones that vintage velos now sells! As far as I can see they looked original! And.....the matching shorts! 3rd door opens, older rod type brake bikes and others!!

Please note!.......This was only the bomb shelter, there's still a 25,000 SQ FT warehouse to go through! And a ''MAJOR PORTION!'' of it is classic stuff! They say, the higher you look the older it gets! Yeh!............Right! Mountaineering gear required to get to the top!........Really nutts!

BTW: This place in near a small marina with of course lots of great food and lots of beer! a great place to ride with ''TONs!'' of fresh air.........And a couple of hotels just around the corner. Sorry to say I can't reveal this source!................It's as real as can be.

Right!.....Aldo!...........................Chucky B!.................Charles N.
