    You're not kidding. I didn't buy one for $200, because I was offered $50 for the frame.,,,,BD

    I noticed this posting for a nice Crescent frame.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Crescent-pepita-...item3f01b72835

    The posting itself is not wacky, but notice the seller's response to another bidder's question. The seller says the BB is French threaded, but the headset is Italian? Does that make any sense? It seems (to my untrained eye) that the fork is original. Could the seller be wrong, or has anyone every heard of mixed threading on a frameset?

    Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Alu/Carbon

    http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/bik/1866615398.html

    Nearly new condition.

    This is from a good buddy of mine who never had time to use it.
    He is 5'11" and it fit him well.

    I know very little about bikes, but from what I can determine from Google, this is what it has on it.
    It's a fantastic bike, but unfortunately too small for me.
    $750 cash is the lowest I'll go.
    Did somebody really just give away that bike to someone who's too big for the frame because the original owner never had time to use it?

    Right.

    Another bike with helium filled tubes. Also, this appears to be around a 53 cm frame and it is advertised as a ladies bike? Actually looks like a decent bike, too.

    http://holland.craigslist.org/bik/1863524568.html

    For sale is a Ladies Centurion Accordo RS road bike..... This bike weighs about 11 lbs and has very skinny little tires so it moves fast......

    Asshat ...

    The fornt wheel comes close to the pedals, as you can see in the pictures.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Where to begin? The seatpost? The asking price? Or, the fact that the bike is a 1993 Raleigh C-50 hybrid and not a true road bike?

    Even if the price was not so high, even if the bike didn't look rusty and beat up, even if it weren't a jumbo size, he would still have trouble selling a bike called a 'Grand Tutile.'

    It is of course a Grand Jubilee, which a moment of looking, thinking, or if that was not feasible, googling, would have resolved.

    OTOH proper respect to him for spelling 'Motobecane' correctly.
    He actually included a photo of the thrift store tag.

    Old bike. Still works. The gears are a little funny sometimes. water bottle holder broke off of it a long time ago and apparently my solution was to duct tape a drink koozie on.

    $35 OBO Pick up

    Thanks!

    OK now this is a listing for a car but really what can she be thinking.


    "Hello i'm selling a 95 mitsubishi eclipse. I just bought the car on Friday 7-16-10 and the engine blew up on me on Wednesday 7-21-10. So needless to say i just want some money back for the car that i JUST bought. I bought the car for $2800 and i'm just asking $1000 for her. Other than the engine not working she is in great shape. It's a silver car and the interior is a darker grayish. The car has approx. 130,000 miles on her. The car is also due for inspection.

    French made Unic-Sport road bike used for Tour de France professional racing. Uh, no it wasn't... though it doesn't have safety levers, might be too old for those?

    Oh, and it apparently is a dog? Shifts and barkes well

    I'm not sure if I'm just misunderstanding this, but it sure seems that the seller is acknowledging the frame is stolen. Even says so in the main title. Also, check out that mangled chain stay which "doesn't affect anything."

    Stolen is a brand. Poor choice for advertising sakes, though.

    1975 Motobecane Grand Record vintage road bike - $800 (Fort Collins)
    Date: 2010-07-29, 3:56PM MDT
    Reply to: sale-t9vnw-1870486370@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

    This is a 1975 Motobecane Grand Record , Red with Gold and black trim including a Rare Gold rear chain-ring. The pictures do not do this rare bike justice, is a great find in excellent condition. Based on the overall condition and wear in the chain-rings i would guess it never saw more than 300 miles and was stored in a clean garage for 35 years. Fully tuned, overhauled and refurbished at the bike shop i work at about 2 weeks ago. I tried to keep it as original as possible but upgraded some cosmetic parts.
    I absolutely love how this bike turned out but it is too nice and good looking for commuting to the shop. It deserves to be in the hands of a collector with all its great original condition and unique parts.
    Key Original Features
    Great paint job - rare red with black and gold hand laid paint
    Unique upgraded butted steel features- this bike has the most decorative and elegant butted steel styling offered at the time hand made in France
    GOLD REAR Cog- VERY RARE- Has minimal -wear looks amazing with the other colors (I have been offered $100 just for this piece!)
    Suntour V-Tluxe rear derailleur
    Suntour compe V front derailleur
    Campagnolo shifter
    Stronglight Cranks
    Norman Hubs with Rigida rims and galvanized spokes
    Kusuki Win Japanese handlebars

    New cosmetic parts include:
    Brooks B-17 leather saddle
    Red anodized origin8 clip-less pedals with original leather straps
    cables and housing
    Vintage Italian made Campagnolo shifter
    CST Super hp tires,new tubes
    New chain
    New front and back brake pads
    New handlebar tape

    INCLUDES replaced parts:
    original brake pads (very little wear they just stop slower)
    original pedals -surface rust
    original shifter
    Price is fair at $800 Contact Harlie (989) 400-25XX...more pics available
    Okaaaaaay....

    Maybe if he put the original Nuovo Record derailleurs back on it'd be worth half that. Maybe even a little more. But original, or fair, it isn't. One would think that a guy who worked in a bike shop would know what a freewheel is called... and maybe if he could read his hubs wouldn't be named "Norman". We seem to get a surprising number of cluelessly dishonest people around here.

    I'm not sure I'm getting the "wackiness" here. Aside from it taking a genius to blow up an engine in five days ("you might want to shift out of first gear, ma'am"), it's only slightly overpriced, depending on overall condition, then and now. Genius-level activity or not, you might be surprised how many people manage to completely destroy a car that quickly. Because of what I've seen I don't consider it to be very unusual and an engine change isn't that big a deal - the one in my particular car can be removed in about an hour if you know what you're doing. Perhaps it depends on perspective or perhaps I'm missing something.
