***RARE PEUGEOT ROAD BIKE*** - $400 (White Center)
I have a rare Peugeot Road Bike I’m selling for $400. It has Simplex gears /gearing, with an aluminum frame, old canvas seat (original), original tire pump (does not work), and it was made in France. All there and it all rides great. Come give it a test ride, if you have any questions you can reach me at 206 XXX XXXX.
I feel really sorry for this guy, but if he love his bike so much why did he left his bike on the front porch? U District in Seattle is known for bike theft.
You stole my Lemond Fixie the evening of the 20th of October off the front of my porch. I'd like it back. I'll pay you whatever you would make pawning it off normally and then some NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Please I just really love my bike and have put a lot of work into it. I am sure we can work out something anonymous so all parties are happy.
It is a 2008 Lemond Fillmore fixed gear. Its dark blue/grey with upgraded petals and black soma toe clips. I upgraded the handle bars to track drops, took off one of the breaks and added one of those sweet cane creek levers.
it looks a lot like the picture below just with track drops.

vintage schwin ten speed 27''. disc break in rear new tires
"Whale. Oil. Beef. Hooked!" The Rumjacks
We've had a few sellers posting damage/unsafe bikes recently in Toronto, and a couple posters who responded publicly letting others know not to buy, which led to some arguing. You know, the usual Craigslist stuff.
Anyways, someone posted this in response:
"It is a 2008 Lemond Fillmore fixed gear. Its dark blue/grey with upgraded petals and black soma toe clips. I upgraded the handle bars to track drops, took off one of the breaks and added one of those sweet cane creek levers."
If only I could find a way to receive a nickel for every mention of bikes with "petals" and "breaks"...
Check this gem on ebay:
Schwin 10 spd. Le Tour Bicycle
This Schwinn Le Tour is five years old and in excellent condition. It is a 10 speed with 26 inch tires. It has Compagnolo shifters and Shimano derailluers. It orange with silver/steel alloy forks. It was $2500.00 new, and it selling for my rockbottom price of $500.00. Get ready for the holidays now, and be ready to take off those pounds after the holidays. It is a professional grade bike, and it is like those used in the Tour de France bicycle race every year. Superb bike for everyday riding or racing. Good luck as it will go fast. I already have a professional racer interested in it for the Tour de France, but I wanted to sell it on ebay first.
Umm ... if the serial number is 'LTxxxxx', that doesn't mean Limited Edition. It means that the frame was built in November of 1982.
Better just "fixer up" ...

WHAT TO SAY IF YOU KNOW ABOUT A SCHWINN THEN YOU KNOW THAT THE YEARS OF 63 AND 64 ARE THE FIRST YEARS OF RACING BIKES FOR SCHWINN!
IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SCHWINN ALSO, THAT THIS BIKE IS THE LIMITED EDDITTION BIKE W/ # LT-------- TO START W/.
SO FOR REAL INQUIRIES JUST LETTTING YOU KNOW I WILL SEND OUT PICS AND WE HAVE HAD IT FOR MANY YEARS AND WAS NOT RIDDEN FOR OVER 20 YEARS.
ITS A FIXER UPPER.
I HAVE ALLL THE PARTS AND PLAN TO FIXER UP UNLESS BOUGHT.

I'm tempted to pipe in just to say "Lying doesn't endear buyers to you" because the claim that professional racers want to buy a Le Tour is pure fantasy.
But I won't bother.
I've got this Pontiac that someone wants to race in Le Mans, but just for you...
He isn't lying, first he's going to sell it on ebay, then he'll sell it to the Tour pro.
I think that the seller:
a. has no idea what he has on his hands (probably an 80s Le Tour)
b. googled "Le Tour" to figure out what it was (and got some hits on the current Le Tour)
c. put it all together, albeit a tad mixed up...
d. had an (ahem) light bulb moment and went tangentially from "Le Tour" to the "Tour de France" and made up a little story.
still at a buck with free shipping, if that thing in not rotten it will make a nice fixie, if one would not mind lugging 40 lbs of steel
I wonder what a person would be pursuing on this Raleigh? It's very clean though.
