    I figured it had to be a typo, so I emailed the seller:



    It'd be a tough sell at $200... Hope they're feeling patient.

    I'm told the Italian Mafioso controls the postal service... I did notice in the ad that the seller will post world wide. For that price, he'd better!
    (and Yes, I realize the price is made up until he can calculate actual shipping costs, in British pounds, it's 1,234,567.89)

    Why would anyone have a picture like that hanging in their house? I guess they must never have company over.

    $650? Not full 531, but three main tubes only. Nothing too numbskully except for the ridiculous price. About 3x value.

    http://richmond.craigslist.org/bid/3529830448.html

    62cm Cycles Gitane shaved lugged Reynolds 531 steel tubing throughout. Beautiful original Mavic Module E 700c wheels with new Panaracer Pasela tires, 6 speed Suntour freewheel.
    New bottom bracket with Sakae SX crank single chainring up front. Overhauled Cyclone rear derailleur, set to 6-speed.
    Overhauled Dia-Compe brakes with new jag wire pads. New cable and housing throughout.
    Velo Orange thumb shifter. New Old Stock SR stem. New Avid levers, city bar and grips.
    The bike has been completely disassembled, cleaned, greased and rebuilt.
    Email with any questions. Thanks.
    $650.00


    Bought the frame a couple weeks ago for less than 100$.

    LOL!
    I was intently studying every bit of the frame, looking for some obvious thing, not seeing it.
    Then I saw the picture in the background.

    I'm surprised nobody has mad a joke about the impressive down tube. I sincerely hope that's not a self-portrait, or else that individual should be riding a mixte.

    it looks cool, but if you're gonna ask that much, make sure it at least has a matching gruppo and no stem shifters.


    i wonder how much weight is added on with the leather

    DFG.

    http://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/3531503598.html

    Your walking downtown and you notice all the flyest homies have a bike. Maybe you've seen them cruise downtown without holding handlebars, or playing the modern day gladitorial battle of bike polo. Regardless deep inside your soul you know that what your missing from being a true Richmonder is a sexy bike. I got a bike for you sonny boy(or a girl i dont hate). Meet my personal ride "Explosions in the Pants". This purely one of kind custom bike turns heads from the scraggy crust punk kids to high waisted jean hipster girlies. Unfortunately it has one issue... That is only real champions can ride it. Many have failed to mount this steed earning this bike the nickname "excalibur of richmond". So if your a champion and have bit of extra cash in your pockets, take this baby home. I'll warn you though they don't call him "explosions in the pants" for no reason, so bring an extra pair of knickers of you plan on riding it home.
    Rather funny, with the distance of the internet. Might be scary in person.

    Brother, you made me laugh! Unless you "only" have one demographic hanging out at your house, you would have a huge problem with that sort of "art".

    This one's just pure gold all around. He starts right off the bat by informing you that a 52cm bike will fit riders who are 6 ft tall. Next is my favorite part of the ad, "This bike was to costly to build so it was opted out for the carbon plastic cheap to make type." He then states that the "Technuim" frame is "much like the armor plates on a M1A1 Tank", which is especially fun because the Technium road bikes were not exactly known for their longevity or durability. Then you have the "over 300 bucks each" "marva" rims, and the cheap twelve dollar Kendas that "cost well over $60 bucks". Finally, after making your way through the whole wall of barely comprehensible babble, you get to the end and realize that this guy actually runs a business. Unbelievable.

    Same guy is trying to sell a LeTour with a bent fork for $300.

    That is a hilarious ad!
    Really weird mix of stuff on that bike, too. Looks like an 8sp Campy RD on there. Bizarre.

    I've been in that guys store before. I learned my lesson the hard way and now I have an app on my smartphone that allows me to jiggle it in my pocket to make it ring so it looks like I have a call to take, BECAUSE THE GUY NEVER SHUTS UP! He has kind of a cool place, with some old bikes and vintage toys, but he is so full of conspiracy theories and random streams of consciousness that as soon as you come in, he starts talking to you about how we never went to the moon, or NASA is a front for mind control, or how the government is screwing you over, and if you try to make your way to the door he just keeps talking to you. He's really scrambled in the brain. I can only imagine how he is now, with the Fiscal Cliff and school shootings/*** control issues going on. Too bad, because he usually has some random parts I might be interested in. The first time I stopped in to check out the place I didn't think I'd ever get out of there, until work actually called me and I stepped outside to talk to them. He was still talking as I went out the door.

    Without commenting on the bike or the price, I was just struck by how bad some Craigslist ads are. You get the impression that some of these sellers were stoned when they decided to list their items for sale.

    Actually you could comment on the bike and the price... I just hope he includes a rear skewer for the eventual buyer. Naa, on second thought, he's not about to find a buyer anyway, so it's moot.

    I also find it just funny that the guy says the rims are high end and why he asking so much for the bike, but nver actually says what the what the wheelset is. Last I checked a mistchmatched set of 80's dark anodized wheels go for about $40.

    I'm more impressed with the 6 foot tall guy riding the 52 cm frame.
