Chuck:...............................I'll save Chucky for the other Chuck!...............Right Chucky!

I was thinking about what you said here, well this may hold true for the U.S. But, not only does these suppliers ( OUR ) have these items but a 'WOHLE LOT MORE!'' So instead of going down the list of goodies that are still sitting on the sagging shelves and so on.

Aldo Ross,......Chuck brooks,.....Charles Nighbor....and I think.....Wayne Bingham! I know I sent some photo files to you guys and asked to not have them shared with others. Well please can one of you or all of you..............Please send these along to Chuck. I remember Aldo commenting that he has never seen so many Campagnolo hubsets, This is what is sitting on the shelf,............not what tucked away under the shelf.

And Charles N......................Would you happen to have that photo of the sagging shelves of Detto shoes I sent to you...............If so hows about a copy and send it off to Chuck.

So if one of you could then ''PLEAAAAAAAAAAAASE!'' These files were lost with the crashing of my computer!

So to say these dealers not only has rare and obscure items laying around but they have a ''WOHLE LOT MORE!''........................This is why we, Cecile and myself are able to work this ''HOBBY JOB!'' full time. BTW: On top of this we're forking out $ 3,500 per month for the SB Location..................As of yet we haven't placed a foot into this place. When all said and done.................$ 25.000 will have been dropped for this address before our arrival. It's the 11,000 plus customers in 42 countries that is fueling the fire...a good handfull are from this list. So to say!............There's got to be a lots of good old bicycle parts beeing bought and sold. as most would say.........................To do something like this, blowing 25K for thin air. Is outright stupid!..............Well, being stupid is part of the GAME PLAN to get us where we are, we broke from the flow and took it cross grain.

BC Baron C..................And the gang!!...............Going on a buying run! Renaissance cycles, Eindhoven Holland.
