    How many of us would love to have a vintage treadle? I hate to see this sort of thing happen.

    Yeah, I hate those, vanities made from treadle bases, lamps, etc. I can't help but think either the one I'm looking at was "killed" to make the item or that others will be inspired to destroy a working machine to imitate it.
