Come on now, he painted the Pletscher rack red - that must be worth $100.

I ended up grabbing this just now for $40. Seller told me they had over 15 replies in the first 10 minutes but I could have it for 40. I think I ended up with it because I told them I was available now or whenever was convenient for them.

I kinda wonder if people don't have auto responders set up to be able to reply so quickly, though tons of ppl are looking on CL all the time..

Yeah, I have an auto responder set up. It's about the only way to snag a good deal around here.

The buyer isn't paying $150 for a BSO BMX frameset. He's paying for the contraband that is stuffed up the downtube behind that OPC.

zukahn1 02-18-14 12:24 PM

This one has been listed for 2+ years strait and has not sold. I suspect it never will.
