Does anyone collect frames? I'm starting a little collection for no reason at all haha. So far I have a T1 Barcode from Cory Foust and now a Native shotgunner prototype #1 frame. What do yall have?

Would love to have a frame collection. It's not so much the money that's the problem, it's space to put 'em.

Do you display them or are they in a box somewhere?

I don't, but I wish I kept my s&m cam wood v2, and the frame I've got now will never be sold. I'm rubbish at collecting anything, I end up selling most of it to get something else (like I always sell bike parts, to buy a different bike part)

I'm a hoarder when it comes to bike parts. I kept a frozen 22mm mid BB bearing because I keep telling myself that I'll clean it and regrease it (I won't).

As for frames, the only one I have as a collection is an Eastern Dragon. Just a midschool frame. My friend has a Federal D-Watts (davey Watson, he is/was a local shredder and pro for those of you who don't know him. Meth messed him up tho) prototype frame, it doesn't even have a serial number on the bottom bracket. And it has a whole bunch of stickers on it, such as "breakfast shit" "shola" (names of some of his edits).

So we're assuming it was used by him at one point, and I think it would be a dope frame to have in a collection.

I keep my old frames, that's about it. Where I am, it's quite hard to find any older stuff.

Right now, I have my 2004 Volume Ardelean(on the left) and my broken 2011 Fly Montana(on the right).

I'm glad im not the only one who hoards parts. I used to sell everything but over time I started keeping shit and now I have half my garage filled with parts haha. My frames are in my garage as well. Kind of on display but really just sitting there until I do something about it.

I've a ton of old parts, some belonging to me, others to my brother. If I'm not using it and a friend needs it, I'll give it to them. Otherwise they go into a box or a drawer to be forgotten about until someone needs them.

The only real thing I have that I am "collecting" at this point is a prototype of the Eastern Choker 3 stem that I got when I was in NC. It doesn't have any logos and the "paint" almost feels like bedliner for a pickup.

I have a budding amount of midschool stuff. I gave a lot of newschool to my friend to ride. He barely rides even now but I have some hopes for when spring comes.

I don't collect frames but I just happen to have a collection of frames. It's slowing going down though which is nice.
