once a week for the last month or so this has been posted, each time with the price about 25 dollars lower Its at 175 right now, the listing is still showing it as when it was at 250. I am looking forward to seeing at what point it sells, in fact when it stops appearing I may call to find out. What a great way to figure out the market!
Also, don't think its a 58.

Nothing shows the seriousness of a rider like those turned up handlebars and rusty components. He is right, it is not cheap at $175.

What's the big deal about a 21" frame? My 22" mtb is rather small for me.

I understand someone missing the reversed fork, but the brake cable that comes down through the center of the stem seems like it would throw up all kinds of red flags...

I don't usually post here but this one has been bothering me. It's been listed for weeks and doesn't even have usable tires!! He originally posted it at $1500 and claims it has parts worth a total of $2500. I should offer him $150 and see what he says.

It's been said before, but I'll say it again: there NEEDS to be a thread specifically for the comic genius that is "BBCBIKES".

Check this out:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=290661437893

$799 for an Autobike? Really? The $129.40 in shipping alone is double what that bike is worth, and it needs a tune up! If anyone is reading that listing and is thinking "Man, I really missed my chance to own one of those...", have I got a deal for you! Show up on my doorstop with two crisp $20 bills and you'll go home with one that looks brand new. Free tune up!

I've done a couple of single speeds with vertical drops. I love 'em.

1970s is hilarious though!
