What was intended as a summer quarantine project lasted just six hours — the time it took to sell all nine to separate buyers. From college students to transplanted Europeans to a man who drove from Santa Clarita, the buyers came to his Hacienda Heights home almost immediately. All nine bicycles were gone before sundown. “It was amazing,” said Yip, a cycling en...

Of course he did. I never had...
