^No, it's the Shimano 600 crank set, shimano105 derailer, shimano 600 brakes, race wrapped handle bars, mavic rims,Michelin pro wheels that are under 12 pounds. All the rest of the gear (plus the frame) add another 12.

Only $3000 for a Fuji/Marlboro folder and a Murray/Squirt MTB! You'd think for that much money they could at least wash them.

This one is kinda wacky good pics of everything but the drive side of the bike or components. I just find annoying when people take pics of everything but what matters. Plus the only description is 23inchs likely wrong and very light. Almost a perfect example of how not to list nice bike.

Only has what you see, no other parts

I have for sale separately a single speed kit that might work on this bike also other vintage road bike rims

Please put something in your ad so i know it isn't spam

Asking $900 or reasonable offer

This multi-colored rasta rough rider is more than down for the long haul. We got her as a wee magic Green Machine and converted her into the single-speed wonder that she is today. ALL the business on this Betty is brand spankin new, you name it...

-wheels:converted free wheel, new tubes, Vitano 700x23 tires
NEW leather bar wraps AND seat, etc, etc, etc...

So, the short and skinny of it is this bike is NOT $100,000 dollars, but thank you for spending the time to check out our master creation. We are looking to sell the NEW and IMPROVED GREEN MACHINE for...

$500 obo
...and I do mean obo
We put a lot of lot of love amd dollars into this work of art, so...
Just sayin

Please text or call for initial contact,

Agreed, as it's kind of a unique, cool look(Although I think bullhorns would fit the look better). But the $500 price is way out of line(might as well stick with the 100,000 price as the seller will get the same sort of interest as the 500 price - zero)......even with the Portlandia style description.....lol.

I think there's a syntax error in the listing title "this peugeot sucks"
in fairness, she does say "obo....and I do mean obo"

esp. since it still has the original cottered cranks. 150/200$ bike with a load of hype attatched, and I really like UO8s. It's not the bike's fault.

Chrome Ross Single Speed Mountain Bike - $800 (Horner Park)

Not really sure I want to sell this, just seeing what kind of interest I can get for it.

Beautiful Chrome Ross Mountain bike that I had converted to a Single Speed.

Bike rides like a dream and will turn heads. Never seen one built up like this.

Hey, I have an all chrome plated higher end Ross mountain bike also. $800.00? Good luck with that. I would happily sell mine for $100.00.

700 Dollars for Mountain Bike.

Not really sure I want to spend this, just seeing what kind of bike I can get for it.

Beautiful new bills. All sequential serial numbers.

Bills fan out like a dream and will turn heads. No one ever worked so hard for $700.
