Stolen? You would think that a real owner would know his bike.

Aye, you would think... Work in a bike shop for a while, however, and you quickly come to realize that it's often just not true. :P

Take your eBay ad copy and picture straight from the Walmart website:

20" Mongoose Massif Boys Fat Tire Mountain Bike, Black/Yellow: Bikes & Riding Toys : Walmart.com

Sell a $197 bike for $294:

Mountain Road Bike All Terrain Massif 20" Boys Massif Fat Tires BMX Sand Cruiser | eBay

I'm guessing that after purchase the "seller" has Walmart ship direct to the buyer & puts a quick $97 in his pocket.

Cache 03-12-14 10:38 PM

^^ Seller has ZERO feedback, so likely he pockets all $293.99 and disappears before PayPal and eBay come knocking.

$125 is a steal for a Stumpjumper. Even $250 for both bikes would be a decent deal and you would have both wheels.

Vintage Skip Tooth Bike.
Awesome old Bike, what you see is what you get, there are no extra's not shown, there is no badge on the bike so im not sure of manufacture.
Price is $200. Cash firm, no less.
If your serious and want a super cool old collectable bike and have the cash contact me.

No way man, for $40 you should hold out for a slurpee.

You can get $100 or more for just the skip tooth chain, so it's not a bad deal for a nearly complete pre war or early post war bike? Try again.,,,,BD


Meanwhile, he finally went down to $500 on the Italvega. I only have to wait another year for him to hit $400, and I will begin to seriously consider this one. He started in 2011 at $900, and has been trying to sell it since then. At least once a week, it pops up with no takers. Maybe I should go look, take $400, and offer $350 to start?

When I saw the thumbnail I thought this was just another bike listed with no mention of how it had been crashed. Then I read "new in the box" and realized they're running the fork backwards. For... reasons?

Sunglasses included.

Hah, I like the picture of it upside down and laying on its side. I think those are supposed to be seductive or something...
