What?? Part two.,,,,BD
Okay - this guy has a pretty nice Raleigh Sports for sale, and the starting bid is a very reasonable $50 with no reserve:
But - the item description is a piece of work. Fascinating, unique spelling and punctuation, a lot of self-promotion, and a tendency to drone on and on. Which is too bad, because if you actually read to the end of the description, you get this gem:
Now, if that doesn't inspire you to bid, I don't know what would!Quote:
Also since I'm a practicing Dark Arts Vo*dooist and Satani*st I'm a strong believer in Karma, hence the name bikekarma"."com & while all items are saged/blessed according to my faith, still however, any Negative karma (V.S. Positive) sent my way will be reflected [return to sender;] and amplified 9X usually within 1-2 moon cycles ~ need I say more?..
If however these sobering terms are acceptable to you, I welcome your bid or business.
sweet layback seatpost and I just noticed the two-tone spokes
Too bad it has the dreaded Sturmey S3C hub - which according to Sheldon - was faulty in design and "prone to failure." If it were an AW, it would be worth nabbing up.
I wouldn't call them moderately high quality. They are pretty nice, just not worth that much.
I'm not sure but I think this belongs here too. I think the price would be alright for a pair of older ones that where made with great quality, these reak of plastic. I may be wrong but I think that price must be a miss type.
Everyone's a Shcwinn expert... :rolleyes:

This guy seems very unhappy.
Be the envy of all your weird-looking, tight-pantsed friends with this stupid-ass bicycle. "Woah, a Pabst Blue Ribbon beach cruisin' bike," they'll say, mouth full of pocky. "Too bad I'm pale and effete and wrist deep in Rilo Kiley right now or else I would wrestle you for it!" Every lanky ****er with ridiculous hair and spedphones will accost you just to sniff the seat of this abomination. It's made by Pacific so you know it's good, or ****ty, or whatever. Basically I'm selling this super ironic weirdo magnet so I can get my girlfriend a mountain bike so we can be that awful couple on Kelly Drive. You know, the ****-eating couple with aerodynamic helmets weaving in and out of families trying to enjoy the scenic river, except I have a $99 department store bike and she'll be wearing jeans and a ketchup stained Tweety Bird shirt. I don't even know where this ****ing thing came from except it's taking up space. It's a cruiser so it's got like one speed and takes way too much effort to move around. But you can hang it on your living room wall right next to the pop-art wall spray painting of Scooby Doo giving an HJ to Scrappy Doo. Is that a thing you guys would have? I don't know since I don't get out much (two friends- both cats). This ***** is seriously bright blue and in good shape but it needs a tube for the front wheel and a pedal. I don't know where the pedal went since I spend most of my days in an alcoholic stupor, although I will attempt to remain reasonably sober for when you come pick it up. Also I made up the price, just offer me whatever. Or trade me a girls mountain bike with a flamingo on it. She ****in' loves flamingos.

- it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
That IS a well written ad. I don't know if it will sell bikes, though.
full disclosure is optional, apparently:
I wrote to him, asking him not to sell it to anyone.
Just because it's rare doesn't mean anyone wants it. Espcially not if it's an $800 Huffy.
And it's not all original either. They either came with tan cloth wrap(early) or tan foam slip ons(later).,,,,BD
