abandoned Landis bike "worth $1000s"


In Owenton, Ky., one resident found what looked like a broken down old bike. The seller said it had been abandoned on the highway, and all he wanted was $5 for it since the pedals were broken. Greg Estes paid his $5, and figured out pretty quickly they weren't broken; just some space-age custom made wizardry.
Turns out the bike was custom made for Floyd Landis, back before he became the Jose Canseco of cycling, and is worth thousands.

Floyd could use that money right now.
