I've bought a Panda MX4(dual shock), R&R, 4 or 5 BB gusset Gooses, Kuwahara ET, Moosegoose, 2nd Gen Motopro, Gurney Squareback, Matthews hardtail, 2 Webcos, 2 Strokers, 3 other Pandas, a dozen or so Motomag 1s, too many Motomag 2s to count, a couple of dozen other rare frames I can't remember now as well 100 or more less rare 70s and early 80s frames(Hutches, CW, Mongoose, Schwinn, DB.....). All from the same place and all from between $2 and $5 a piece. Sadly that place has been gone for about 10 years, and for my bank account all but a few were sold in the early days of Ebay for a quarter or less of what they'd be worth today.
Yep, I now have a rule that it's better to whip it down to the bars, frame and forks and stow in a box in the attic than sell it and regret it ten years later.

I picked up this 1990 GT Mach One
for $50 earlier this summer. I know it isn't anything special but it is completely original. Every nut and bolt. All reflectors (previous owner sent me the wheel reflectors and pedal reflectors when he found them), original "GT" molded tires, original brake pads, everything. Never beaten on nor put away wet. Original owners manual. Looks like it was ridden less than 50 miles, ever.
Only thing it's missing is the rear valve stem cap.
Sweet bike. Straight up original unbeasted bmx.
