$1100 Schwinn Traveler? I have two in the rafters waiting for next Spring. I had no idea they were commanding Italian prices.

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/bik/1436901368.html



SCHWINN, road bike, A REAL SCHWINN . Due to situations I am forced to sell this bike. This bike is in excellent condition (just out of storage) in as near new condition as a bike can be. Beside being an excellent bike to just ride, this is one of the last truly great bikes produced in the USA. Yes, this is one of the last Schwinn’s produced from the custom shop in Chicago. A few years ago this bike could have brought huge amounts of money from collectors. I know times are tough now. Will someone go $1100 ? or make me any non-silly offer? OK- make a silly offer but not too silly, Will consider trade or partial trade for firearms, high-end camera, (220V) Mig welder ????

I saw that Traveler on CL. I didn't know what that guy was thinking. And still don't.

Someone shares our opinion.

RE: Schwinn Traveler, road bike - $1100 (Fountain Hills) - $110
http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/bik/1437043818.html


I think you're missing a decimal in your price.

Well... I'd certainly hope shoes weren't made for that purpose.

Amazing what an "ea" instead of an "i" would do...
