as exciting as those were there was only one item that really blew my mind (im a bit jaded after all these years of finding shit)

 

a brand new never ridden 1971 Japanese Bridgestone bike with the warranty card and instruction s still attached at a goodwill for $100 ( a guy fooowed me to the parking lot and offered me $500 on the spot but this one is a keeper).

all the lights still work,has the original Primus pump and tools in tool box.i cant even find a a pic of a used one never mind a new one.

the only pic i could find is in a Bridgestone Brochure from 1971

this thing is heavy but its fast

Frenchy, I'm glad to see you back.  Even though we gave each other shit, I missed you after you left.

 

I've edited post 40k to include your haul.

Damn. Awesome stuff all around. Same to DM7.

 

My only finds the past few days. Both available if anyone wants them.

 

Zegna Shirt XL

Comme des Garcons Shirt......shirt. Silk M

SDC10346.JPG

 

I also found a Camelhair Brooks Brothers Herringbone Sport Coat that I can proxy for someone. No tagged size but my guess would be around 42R since it was quite big on me at 38R.

These things are $$$$. The bigger and heavier, the better. These are usually the ones with two antennas (Rabbit-ear style). Nice find! Care to share which model it is?

It's the BomBeat x-01, has a fucking light bar on it and everything. Couldn't find the same model on the bay, but I'm keeping this biotch anyways so who cares. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I really wished my computer worked, I had an amazing day today including the sickest golf bag I've ever seen. Looks to be from the 50's or 60's. It's a Spalding in blue and cream plaid with white leather on the top. But the kicker is that is has this hand tooled leather trim all over it with flowers and leafs. Stunning! It's in pretty rough shape right now but I'm going to see what I can do with it. I've never played a round of golf in my life, however I know some of you gentlemen like to hit the links. I'm debating weather to keep this thing just for the coolness factor or pass it on to somebody who actually plays the game. Pics to come, I promise!

Man whatever happened to those Oxfords biggrin.gif. Just messing with you, whenever you know ohw much they are to ship though seriously, let me know.

also, can I get any advice about looking for suits on ebay? I've been trying to find staple charcoal, gray or navy suits in around a 36-38 (about 17.5-18" shoulders) and around a 30W (either 31 or 29 to be tailored in or let out), but I seriously come up with maybe 150 results after I put in those parameters, and I'm finding it hard to believe that there are only 150 navy, gray or charcoal (shit, even black will do) suits that fit that parameter. The ebay thread hasn't helped much, so someone tell me if I'm doing this wrong or something.

Which oxfords? Damn I'm sorry if I forgot to get back to you on something. PM me. I also just opened the the side compartment on the golf bag and there's a pair of Freeman golf shoes inside with shoe trees! Nothing special,but still. Oh yea, and the ghetto blaster IS the kind with the dual antenna, rabbit ears.

Sorry for the triple post, I also picked up an original Columbia Sportswear Co. fly-fishing jacket. Made in Portland and looks unworn, no really. Has to be from the 50's at least! The SW&D dudes are going to bust a nut!

Wow, some epic stuff posted and reposted there.
post #40074 of 103132
Orson Welles clap for Frenchy's wood.

I feel like such an incompetent buffoon looking at furniture and audio. I would know the stuff to pick up if I saw it sitting alone in a corner, but amongst the mass of useless shit, I have no idea. Does anyone else feel like the furniture and electronics bring out the scrappers? I always see at least one or two weathered looking gents in cutoff shorts and sleeveless t-shirts all over the bric a brac at the back of the store. Are they buying things for scrap, or do they actually know high end from Wal Mart?

I love the Mad Men chair Frenchy posted. That would be a great chair to kick back in and enjoy some tunes on the speakers he picked up.
post #40076 of 103132

I picked up this nice Schott Rancher's jacket today. Don't know what year it's from...anyone know? Also, a sweet ass 1976 Coleman Cooler with bottle openers on the handles. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

What you can expect is decent shirts and pants at true THRIFT prices ~$5 per shirt and pants for Zanella or similar pants, and Ike Behar or similar shirts. I'm not touting this stuff as the best clothing on the planet, but its all respectable, and you won't get a better deal. So in short, if your approx. 16 shirt and 34 pants hollachaboy to fill out a fledgling MC closet. I also have a variety of SC/Suits in 40R/42R which I will also let go at thrift prices. Someone please help me clear this shit out without redonating or taking the time to make a ton of ebay listings, I want them in a good home.

Damn it. Had an entire post ready to go and then my screen went "back" censored.gif

 

 

Not Savile Row, but not too shabby. John Varvatos "runway" black one button, slanted pockets, very modern. Made in Italy....anyone know who makes Varvatos in Italy? This is not the Varvatos USA crap.

OK, this one is Savile Row biggrin.gif Jarvis & Hamilton kick ass HEAVY navy flannel herringbone pattern sport coat. Could almost wear it as a coat. Double breasted peak lapel with ticket pocket (unvented). Great quality obviously.

 

 

Last but not least, a nice non-orphan (unless I am totally off) Redish/Brown Check Sport Coat by Hickey Freeman with working button cuffs. Nothing crazy, but nicer then most of the ones I see (and leave).
