    It's not very likely that someone who didn't know what a Penny Farthing was, would own one? Unless of course by accident.,,,,BD

    I remember back when I was around 19, I saw what was left of a Cale Yarborough Special in a junkyard. I never wanted to rescue a car more. It was a rolling chassis though, and at that age I had neither the time nor the money to do it justice. I can only hope someone did the right thing.,,,,BD

    This may be a perfectly fine bike at the right price, don't know about that. But I'm curious about how I get that job of "Professional Bicycle Tourist" that this bike was obviously used for.
    I just snorted coffee out of my nose. I want that job...

    I don't get the fixie fad anyway (sorry fixie fans), so I am always amused by the extra $200 that sellers charge, presumably for doing the buyer the favour of removing all the pesky components that have evolved to a high state of efficiency and usefulness over the last 120 years. I especially enjoy reading of the experiences of fixie fans who insist on riding them in hilly or mountainous regions that fixies are completely unsuited for.

    And okay, I get the 'simplicity' argument. There is something to be said for getting back to basics and enjoying what's truly essential about a bicycle. But I just don't see the point in riding it in the real world, where hills and cars make gears and brakes necessary.

    Wonder what this actually is?

    I bet that weathered brroks that was unusable is actually listed on ebay haha!

    Old School Pale Blue French 10 spd Road Bike Med. Frame - $220 (Eastside Portland)

    French bike of unknown make, frame has been repainted. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say it was a higher end Peugeot. The lugs most closely match Peugeot lugs and it comes with the usual Peugeot setup: Rigida alloy wheels with Normandy high flange hubs, Shimano derailleurs, came with Campagnolo downtube shifters, replaced with Huret shifters and cable guides, SR cranks with English threaded bottom bracket, alloy handlebars and Mafac brakes and levers. Also came with Brooks weathered leather saddle too worn to recycle, replaced with new Cyclone form fiting grooved saddle. No idea what steel it's made with but it's quite light (weighs just over 26lbs soaking wet. Would make an excellent commuter/touring bike.

    Thoroughly cleansed and overhauled: New grease and bearings adjusted in wheels, headset and cranks, new cable housing and cables, brakes and derailleurs adjusted, new brake pads, new handlebar wrap, new tires, new chain, wheels trued. Whisper quiet, smooth shifting, 100% ready to go forth and ride.

    56cm seat tube, fits 5'8" to 6'0" rider best

    Call Dave for a test spin @ 503.253.5671

    Hey Robbie, since you are so critical of me and my bicycle overhauling skills I was just wondering if Bicycling magazine ever published any articles about you or your bikes? Hey! Maybe you should call them up and ask them if they are interested? Here's an article they did about me...

    The picture of the magazine article didn't copy... damn read it it's good.

    I ran across this one a couple days ago. My dad lives in Topeka, and I go there all the time. Where, pray tell, in KANSAS, are you going to find a hill steep enough and long enough to hit 58.4mph?

    Brand new Schwinn road bike - $180 (Topeka)

    Reply to: sale-d7yfz-1903167325@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

    I bought a road bike from WallMart about a month ago. It's a pretty sweet bike. It's a lightweight Schwinn Varsity series bike, with a 7/7 gear drive setup. Paint job is a base of polished aluminum, with black and yellow decals.I also bought for it a Speedo, headlight, and tailight. Very safe for riding at night. The headlight is led, and so is the back. Both have three different flash settings. Depending on the rider, it can be a very quick bike. I rode down my street which is a slight decline and the speedo clocked me at 58.4 mph. That was a freaky ride! Bike and accessories cost me $290.78. (looking at the receipt.) It too looks brand new, frankly because it is brand new. I don't even know if theres a spec of dust on it yet! I'm willing to let it go for $180.00. Price is firm, no lowballers.

    Haha. Yeah, we do. I personally did not purchase the penny farthing, but i thought it was funny someone was selling one on craigslist. That said, in my journeys around the city, I have seen a guy on a penny farthing before. Maybe this one?

    Oh yeah, and I found this ad today on craigslist. 300 bucks for a "vintage" Schwinn? I paid 125 for my 77 Varsity and I felt like I over paid a bit.

    Schwinn 12-speed World Sport Men's bike - $300 (Franklin)

    Reply to: sale-8zwgf-1924390353@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

    This is a Schwinn 12-speed World Sport Men's bike. This cycle appears to be all original and is in good condition. It shifts and stops great and is fast too. I did not notice any cracks in tires. The front rim looks straight and I just bought new back rim 2 weeks ago. The blue paint is shiny and in better than fair condition (a few chips around the forks and lower frame). The foam grips on the handlebars are in good shape. The front rim has a quick release hub. The bike is equipped with very comfortable gel seat (I have done many rides over 15 miles with no problems). The tires are Schwinn HP Sport 26 inch. Also comes with the chrome bottle cage, (two plastic bottles- just remind me), no kickstand. Tool kit under seat includes a spare tube and tools to change a flat. Pump also mounted on bike. For info call me on my cell 615-584-4218 or reply to email.

    This bike is pretty light, it is approximately 26 lbs, (11.9 Kilograms).

    Look this baby over. It is really a sweet bike. I am not sure what year it is. Check out the photos. I love the bike but I need to buy a 24” bike since I am too short for stops at lights plus my first love is mountain biking! I ride the bike to and from work several days a week. This is a very good bike in good condition for anyone taller than 5’-6”. I am firm on my $300 dollar price (it is worth more) or will trade for similar quality 24" mountain bike!

    Methinks someone needs to recalibrate their new speedometer.

    Ouch!

    That reminds me of that show "American Pickers". I just kills me to see them go on someone's property with all this cool stuff (including bikes) strewn all over the place rotting away.
