What's wrong with that? In a few years as my daughter gets older, I'll probably be looking for a trail-a-bike of some sort.

I just don't think it could get weirder than that. I hesitate to post this one (that can't compete), but the photos of this innovative setup are worth seeing.

Nishiki Road Bike wish Shimano Ultegra and extras

This is an 80's road bike that has great potential to be an amazing ride for somebody out there. The derailleurs are good, wheel set is good, tires are fair, frame is in good shape, brakes are in good condition. The main thing that needs work on this bike is the handlebar, shifters, and brake levers. They are all there, they just need to be rewired. A local bike shop should be able to do this for not too much. (Bikers Edge in Kaysville quoted me 20-30 for the cables and the labor.) The handle bar is a unique aero-bar that will need to be wrapped and set up with a shifter set, or replaced with a standard handlebar set.The rear derailleur is Shimano Ultegra. The front derailleur is Shimano. I also have a Shimano Ultegra crankset if you want it. There is the option of either the original shifters with Shimano breaks levers, or Shimano Ultegra shifter and and break combo. For a shop to do all the work will cost closer to $50-60 not including the price of a new handlebar set and wrap.

I am selling 3 Vintage Beach Cruisers from the 60s-70s. Awesome project bikes with lots of character. I am selling each for $150, or the lot for $400. I will post pictures later, but this picture of Marilyn Monroe on a bike is what I had in mind for my girlfriend at the time, just to give you an idea. My girlfriend does not look like Marilyn Monroe.

Doh... maybe if I had known what it was that I was looking at. NOW it makes sense.

Apart from the dialogue, he should see if the bike shop will give him $175 for it so they can flip it for the $350 they quoted.

Optimist of the month:

[h=2]FOR SALE OR TRADE . STREET SURFER - $900 (OR BEST OFFER $$$)[/h]


This is a one of a kind bike that feels like SURFING with a suspension system that all the kids will want to try.
Don't laugh BMX'ers, Everything you have ever seen done on a BMX bike has been done and is viewable on the website video. http://www.streetsurfer.com.au/home/ OR look it up on YouTube.
I have one of these from Interbike that only dealers got to look at.
Perfect condition and This one is Silver and like new.
the Retail price is 900.00 US
This will fit little kids from 6 to people up to 6 foot tall.
The rear suspension adjusts to raise or lower the whole bike.
In Japan they have built a whole bike park just for these and Adults ride them. Sold around the world but only a few exist in America.

I WILL LIKE TO GET FULL PRICE . BUT YOU CAN MAKE ME AN OFFER

I spray can painted a bike like that once. Except it was solid yellow in the front with b/w stripes in the back. I called it the bumblebee. Of course I was 14 years old and that was 40 plus years ago. I probably thought it was super duper cool then too.

Reminds me of the summer I spent in Somerville, MA (Cambridge-adjacent), a couple times I saw "cheap funky green limousine" driving around, it was covered in astroturf and had that advertising slogan painted on the windows.

I remember seeing a process called "flocking" in my old Hot Rod magazines! It involved a positive charge and some "flocking material". Kinda cool!

Seems pretty whacky wierd to me if the bike could be sorted out as cheaply as the seller say's why has it not been done. I would figure several times to qouted price to have a shop sort everything with the STI's if there working correctly which I doubt.

If it was turned around, that'd be a pretty cool looking squiggly fork. Also, is that a leather saddle? $100 sounds like not a bad price (if you are big enough for a bike that tall)

I especially like the location of the brake lever!


Nice!

Here is Hubris.

I don't know the maker, a quick google search shows that they made some TDF bike back in the day. But this isn't one of them, but it is priced like it is.

Yes but its Free Shipping.

I think the high price is so it won't sell, and then he can justify keeping it to his SO.

Why is painting a bike black a theft deterrent?

An easy question to answer. Most thieves operate at night, and they can't steal what they can't see.
