    Help needed in LA

    I'm wondering if someone could pick up and ship a bike from Los Angeles to NC?
    I'd pay, of course, and the bike can be disassembled all the way if needed.

    I'm waiting on word from the owner/seller.

    Sorry, LA the city, I'll correct the post. Thanks for reminding me there's both...

    oh let me guess first, this bike?:
    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...009953086.html

    "Le Mans Centurion Bike

    This bike has been good to me and now its time for it to go. I am 6ft 2 and it fits me well. I would say it is a 21" frame. It also comes with a lock as you can see it wrapped around the neck of the seat. The frame is lite and may also be converted to fixed gear. First come first serve.

    Thanks & Good Day!!

    That's not the one. The BF member who said he'd pick up the one I want also offered to pick that one up for me. That would move me from knee deep in bikes to hip deep.

    I have purchased the bike, and riva up there on this thread is going to pick it up for me and ship it.
    I am going to work it out with him, and we'll see about getting his Miyata "on the road," too.

    I appreciate the offers, will PM one of you if it falls through for any reason.

    I realize this is a major test of faith in folks I don't know. I believe it will work out.

    It usually does!

    Naturally, we are eager to see the bike when it shows up on your doorstep.

    I've got nice new TV shipping boxes and an A-B foam machine waiting here for the job. Not going to turn out like this.. Worst eBay frame packaging ever.... I promise!
