I admit it; I've made some bad bike buying decisions recently. Some of which I haven't posted in fear of embarassment. When pictures of a chrome lugged Fuji appeared on Craigslist, I responded immediately. The chrome fork and lugs were evident in the photograph, but the rust was not. The bike was listed for $100 and I quickly responded. When I arrived, I was disappointed by the condition of the bike. When he called, he also said that he had several other bikes so I looked at them. On the second bike (a Fuji Royale), I saw some components I could use for another rebuild so I made an offer of $120 on two bikes. He countered and I refused. Eventually, he agreed to the $120, and I loaded up the bikes. On my drive back, I got angry with myself for not walking away.
Please tell me if I've made a bad decision. If I did, I must be stopped. I can't afford to keep making bad decisions. Should I be banned from Craigslist?
Also, with the chrome lugged Fuji, can someone help me identify it? Also, is the fork a replacement? Thanks. Your help is appreciated!
