    This is a collectable Schwinn,it's was purchased new in the 70'S. The frame size is 27in, frame is in excellent condition,this Schwinn came all chrome,was equipped with all campi components and mavic wheels,a real nice road bike





    Could this possibly be so? Anyway, I'm sure it was gone 10 minutes after it went up.

    looks more like a 25" to me... which would mean it's my size.. maybe it is wishful thinking but I agree with Rabid Koala... very painful

    Mike,
    I e-mailed the guy last night about 10:30. No response as of today.
    They call me "Mr. Mixte"

    Yeah, I saw it too, but decided it was too honkin' big for me or any friend I could try to push it on, so I just pretended I hadn't seen it and went to bed. I've seen a couple of these "too good to be true" ads on CL turn into ugly bidding wars once the seller gets wind of what he can actually get for a bike, so I'm happy to avoid those, everytime.
