I might add -- at $500 or so, any Jack Taylor is an absolute steal in my opinion. They are great bikes and worth every bit as much as other fine hand-made collectable bikes. For some unknown reason, they don't seem to have the broad recognition among collectors as, say, some of the fine Italian makes.
