Mixtes seen in the last two days on sf bay area craigslist:
Mixte (unknown and beat) - $520
Gitane - $400
Mixte (unknown) - $400
Peugeot - $320
Peugeot (a beauty!) - $300 (sold)
Nishiki (beat) - $225
What!?! Earlier in the year I was seeing Japanese mixtes for ~$150.
Did Michelle Obama, or the equivalent of Brittany (I'm a little out of it as far as celebrities) suddenly start riding mixtes? I've never seen prices like these. Besides, I'm looking to spend $150, plus the obligatory new tires and whatever else. I'm certainly willing to do some work on it. I'm hoping to come up with a ridable, decent looking bike for $200.
Btw, this is for someone else. I've already got my mixte, a '75 Peugeot and I love it. I've got slightly more than $200 into it, but that includes some head tube and fork work by a (real) mechanic.
