Classic and Vintage Sales - SELLING A BIKE or COMPONENTS ? Read This FIRST
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Lately we have seen more than a few sales types of postings
in the Classic & Vintage forum.
While we are a bit more forgiving when it comes to trades, barter,
request for (or notices of) PMs (or sent) there is a limit.
All for sale postings have to be done in the Market Place forum,
and yes, in order to post a new thread there you must be a
registered, upgraded member (see link in my signature for more information about that), i.e. Red star
or yellow jersey membership.
Any sales posting will be moved to trash.
And for the old timers around here (bike forum age, not chronological age)
please, lets be easier with the newer members around the issue. A gentle
reminder (sans emoticons etc.) will usually do the trick.

Hey all! You now have a specialized for Classic and Vintage Marketplace. It operates on the same rules as the regular marketplace,, requiring upgraded membership for thread starts. We discussed it at the Administrative level and arrived at the conclusion that CV was a specialized enough market to warrant a specific For Sale Forum.
We do ask that as your items sell, please hit the report post and ask the Moderators to delete the thread. Use it in good health! I'm going to leave this up as a sticky to explain things, and post any eventual changes, if any.

As a followup note, there is now a Classic and Vintage speciffic For Sale subforum. Look up at the top. The same conditions as the regular marketplace apply. Upgraded membership to start a threaad.
One point Tom missed:
Prices are required in your post no make an offer threads .

We've set a default age off of threads over 30 days with no activity. If your thread ages off, feel free to repost it. This is to create a better turnover and prevent this place from becoming a thread storage locker.

We don't link to Ebay Auctions, although if you have a Craig's List Ad that meets our terms of clear price, etc, that is fine.
You must state a clear price
We provide an infrastructure platform only, all sales are between the involved members. We'll assist as much as is possible in a dispute, but in the end, it's between thee and your seller/buyer.
Hijacking another member's For Sale Thread for your merchandise will result in an immediate ban
I've tried to make this as clear and simple as possible, to avoid confusion. Thanks for your cooperation.
The same general guidelines for posting For Sale threads goes for WTB as well- upgraded membership and in the Marketplace.
Be descriptive in the thread title and in the OP to assist those who may have what you're looking for.
