My '79 KM100 minicycle. I wanted one as a kid so I bought this one when I was about 48. Not used much anymore but still fires on 1st lick. I think I might take it down my icy driveway in a minute. It might not survive this spring's selloff.

Oh yeah, I also bought an old used Rockwell drill press from a cabinet shop about 25 years ago. No idea how old it is. I use it to make SteverStoves on, sell them to all you FF's, then buy beer with the money. To make more stoves with the empties.

Oh good call. I also have a very old cast iron skillet that is at least grandma age. It's a prized possession, as i use it nearly daily, and it would be difficult to replace. years of use/seasoning have given it near perfect patina, which is better than non-stick. I've tried new iron, and it just doesn't have the same finish.

My favorite deer rifle is 115 years old.

The other 10% are sociopaths , serial killers and KLR riders. You wont get much sympathy from them.

WW2 Leica binoculars taken off a German soldier at Normandy ...damn nice binocs, exc condition

I don't host pics anywhere....always wondered what these might be worth

Live in a 1917 orchard farm house, built solid with rough cut demensional seasoned lumbar, they don't build them like this anymore, solid, no dry walls, no chip/particle board, cistern, well water...

1960s Dynaco FM3 tube tuner, Pat 4 preamp, Stereo 120 power amp - my original stereo with Klipsch Corner Horns(sold)...unlikely, but I pass with exc hearing now despite...James Gang, Dead, Led Zep, Moody Blues, Hendrix, ... with a Phase Linear amp driving them WFO

4 Early 80s JBL 4311B Studio Monitor speakers as my surround sound system = no cracker jack box speakers here, Hafler pre and power amps, bi amped fronts, 15" sub

1969 Mach One 351 cylinder heads, the good ones, etc

These uppers on these are also 30 years old and still in use:

And the top one is nearly 35 years old and still in use:

When I saw this, my first thought was, "that guy's a surveyor." I checked your profile - yep. I'm a PLS too and I still use my 41CX that I bought in college in 1985. I have the survey pack and math pack too. I remember paying $425 for it. It was my first-ever credit card purchase. I use it nearly every day. A few years ago, I got an old 41CV for a back-up.

My bike is 36 years old, it's my primary scoot. My car is 46 years old but I don't drive it in the winter. I know I have pics of my shovel on here somewhere, I'll see if I can post a pic in here.

If you say "Gullible" slowly it sounds like "Oranges".

Used regularly.

Also have a 1917 Lee Enfield no 1 mark III that I use a camp gun and a 1935 gillette double edge razor I got from my grandpa that I use every day. Find it gives a better shave then the new multi-blade things,

1950s western saddle. No maker's mark, unfortunately. Just "404". I've owned it since 1979 and still use it!
