    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!
    That's a hilarious post! -and a good looking Sports. That dude doesn't realize NOBODY reads ads that long.

    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.

    Those look really good actually. Very well maintained. Still over priced, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if they sell at that price. Especially with their stock Brooks saddles and frame pumps.

    This guy seems very unhappy.

    http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/1686072018.html

    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.

    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

    They kind of were when I bought mine, they had one demo, and one in stock. Sears left the aero brake caliper covers off of mine when it was assembled. I am still
    kind of ticked about that, 30 years later....;-)

    Here's one: Love the spelling too

    PUT CURSES ON SOMEONES ELSE BIKE

    Date: 2010-04-12, 5:12PM PDT
    Reply to: see below

    I have been praying all my life so I have some clowt with the LORDALMIGHTY and can put curses on any bad peoples bikes for real cheep. You can pay memyself or just pay pal it to me and I will make poxs on there bikes like Moses did to the Faroe of Egipped. You need to tell me what they did wrong like if there CHEATS or LIARS so that I can make the curses that fits there transgeshuns. No I wont make them crash or fall or anything else dangerus like that but I did already made up speshel curses to make there tires develope slow leaks and for there battery lites to not hold a electrickel charge and for there barings to go bad and for there weels to go un trued or for there bike to get rusty all over it or for them to lose both there criptonite keys or for there tires to get dryroted.
