1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Love finding deadstock stuff. Wish they were redlines, but I cant really complain too much. Love the original price and sale stickers. Unfortunately they fit really damn well, tell me these dont sell for much so I wont feel bad about keeping them.

    c1987 Pre-shrunk 501s.

    Also I picked up my bike from it's full resto job at the shop today. Just need to get the seat adjusted, and this weekend I think Im going clean up the bars, anddo a nice waxed twine wrap. Eventually going to swap the seat to something that will last.

    I might, I've got an old Brioni tweed with only two buttons left on it. Looked like they matched yours too. What size?

    I think I'm a massive sucker, but even if it's fake as hell which it seems to be (I mean, South Face??), it's cool as hell. The details are pretty sweet; that back pocket is waterproof-looking material lined. The Scott name and font seems reasonable. Has a material tag but no origin mentioned... @Nataku ? @Fueco ? Zero info found online or eBay.

    Never purchased this brand before but it was pristine, made in India, and dry cleaned, so it was cherry popped!

    Yes, they can. But not sure if that's enough to tell.

    Scott makes pretty decent skis and skiing apparel. The whole South Face thing has be stumped. Why such a well-known company would try and make make a bad spin-off of another outdoor apparel's brand is beyond me. Could be a fake trying to cover two well-known labels. :laugh:

    That bike is awesome! I have two 1984 treks. A 760 and a 520. I actually raced the 760 a few times. I bet the 660 will ride beautifully.

    I was a Sekai guy in the 80s, Campy parts...but my fave was a clunky old Motobecane. Urban Assault Vehicle, that thing was.
