schwinn free, fuji $30, trek $150.
At least those are the obvious choices.

Logical- yes, but I've seen too much seller cluelessness...

Trek - free
Schwinn - $30
Fuji - $150

I just bought a Trek 2120 frame today that's very similar to your 2100. I wish mine was gray and carbon rather than purple...

Nice score!

+1, could have been the Schwinn was $30 and the Fuji was free but paying $150 for the Schwinn is high. Also high for the Fuji, but not crazy high. For the Trek its a screaming bargain unless the frame is damaged.
I'd pay $30 for either the Schwinn or the Fuji easily provided they're in good condition.

I think we can all agree that 180 for the lot is criminally cheap...and yes, we're jealous!

Yes the Trek was $150 and the Fuji $30 - an easy guess. Two communities have yard sales in the Spring and Fall. I take my vitamins and get to bed early Friday night to prepare. I've watched Trek owners bike for the last 3 yard sales - and this time he took it down and sold it. He originally wanted $200. I'm selling it to a local lady who is doing the MS150 this summer. I owe her because I sold an earlier Giant out from under her when someone sent money via PayPal.

I also picked up a nice German commuter MTB with fender/rack/and aero wheels - and a Motiv cromoly MTB but they weren't vintage. Another seller is giving me a 1990 (approx) Fuji cross bike that needs work and a third promised to send pics of a 60's vintage banana seat bike

+1, Can't beat community yard sales for bang for the buck. Here's my haul for the day. I typically don't find really nice bikes like your Trek road bike, but I'm happy with this lot.
From left to right, Univega Supra Sport, Trek 820, Raleigh Capri,

$25
