This has got to be the oddest Craigslist ad I've seen in quite awhile:

It will take awhile to grow into 16-20 feet bikes.

Magic bicycle - $500 (Northern NH)

Date: 2009-10-22, 6:46PM EDT
Reply to: sale-epvhp-1433411453@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]



Up for sale is my custom magic bicycle.

I built it myself from a Schwinn frame. Has Nitto bars and stem, really cool paint job, fixed-gear for all of you hipsters, new tires and tubes. The great thing about this bike is that it's MAGIC. Seriously, it's magic in a supernatural sense. It may have had some enchantment or spell put on it one night while it was chained up outside my house, maybe a fairy or wizard or something, not sure. The fact of the matter is it's magic and it's the only magic bike I've ever heard of, let alone ridden. If I were you, I'd seize this opportunity to own the world's first enchanted bicycle and who knows? You might end up on Oprah or something. Anyway, $500 is a mere pittance when you think about how awesome it will be to have a magic bicycle. E-mail me for pictures.

Double that weight and it's about right.

Yea, but they are only asking $200.00 so you'd better act fast.

I love it when sellers tell you what the TRUE value of the bikes are.

Funny thing is... every bike I have bought was strangely worth exactly the amount I spent.
(Of course, sometimes the price went up significantly when I sold them )

I laughed long and hard. And then I looked at his other auctions, realized he is serious and laughed long and hard. Then I did a search here, and realized everybody is laughing at this guy apparently.
