I filled out their "contact us" form and got a little FAQ pop-up saying that they don't replace missing stuff. I suppose I'll just ask anyways and use ebay if that doesn't work. Thank you! :^)
Well no I didn't mean they will replace it for you like a missing button,you have to buy them ,I know I've seen them for sale on their website awhile back .

Had a rather eclectic assortment of finds today.
First up, some samples from some shoe brand.

Highlight today for me is a stone island pullover... Does it look legit to you guys? Also, does anybody know where to get a replacement badge? I swear someone mentioned it on this thread before.
SI will not give or sell you a spare badge. I found a banging parka recently and I sent them an email with certilogo pictures and they declined my request.

There are a few Facebook groups that might be able to help you out. Mercari and postmark have them occasionally but lot of fakes so be careful.

Those Scalextric tracks are expensive. I bought a basic track for my son (seems like forever ago) with a couple 911s for something like $200+. Then "we" bought a couple extra (Fly Racing) cars and each was around $80 or so...maybe more. Those cars actually go up in value

Agreed... Looks to be around a 1993 model. Would need to see a pic of the other side of bike. Restoration to original would be a fun adventure. Certain parts like the GT dropnose saddle and cranks could be acquired without too much effort. Correct decals would be another story. Can't tell the condition of the chainring from this angle. But, it looks like the original 44 tooth. Hopefully, it's not thrashed.
Yeah, The GT "power series" 1pce crank can be found easily.
But rather than restore to stock, I'd restore it to "period correct". which i think would command the same resale value if all cleaned up real nice. an all chrome GT is a desirable beer getter for many in our age group.
(I have one :devil:)
If you could get the period correct grips, that would be a boon.
Yeah, getting it to mid 90's rider spec would make that a supreme bike.

Good eyes @Thrift Vader @drlivingston !
It’s a 93/94 M1. Everything is in really good condition besides the decals and a little surface rust. Well, the grips are too far gone to save.
From what I can tell it’s all original besides actual saddle not having any GTTT markings. It’s a viscount, though. Seat post has the GT sticker on it still. Bars are labeled as the expert model, so guess the PO could’ve mixed and matched a bit.
Looking at what a restored one of these went for on the feebay, people are crazy... I had an original M1 or similar model a few years back that I sold that I’m now regretting not holding onto for longer. If only I had a crystal ball...
Yeah man, great pickup. :worship2:

That V-brake adapter tho. . seems not stock, but period correct?
I'd just ditch the pegs and shine it up. Look for grips and a brake lever.

To other members. .
I say it every time. BMX is almost always money. If you find one, post it. and we'll tell you.

That said, I have a list of bikes i'm after. if you find one? I'll make a solid offer.

Left a $100 Harman Kardon Two Thirty reciever on the shelf at the spot that normally has overpriced electronics. Not really familiar with that brand's ancient products. Will do some investigation on it and might check back tomorrow because it will be half priced for Earth Day

Passed back for the Harman Kardon. Plugged it in and lights came on. Connected speakers but no sound. Changed inputs and still no sound. Noticed the fuse holder, opened it and found a blown fuse. Stripped some of my speaker wire (never leave home without it), jumped the fuse and viola: sound!

On line to pay right now. Oh and it's Earth Day so 50% off so it's only $50. Not bad on a low powered but relatively rare. Looks like this when powered on. Radio dials light when selected: right dial is FM, left dial is AM

edit:

I was out of compressed air so the internal dust bunnies are still there. I gave it the basic disinfectant alcohol wipe down and changed the fuse. It's kinda cool that when phono or aux is selected the only illumination is the power button. It also has 2 phono inputs: one for magnetic and one for a ceramic. Vinyl addicts will love it. It makes jazz come alive
