Sweet Schwinn for sale.

Weel, at least the ad's worth reading;
http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/2576224459.html
In case it get's deleted, here's the words. You can insert the picture you want;


Are you looking for a bike with two wheels? Yea, **** that. Why bother when you can get an awesome bike with just one wheel? Before you go jumping to conclusions, no, it is not a unicycle...though a handy individual could no doubt fashion a unicycle out of all the *****ing parts in this finely tuned, german engineered piece of equipment. So check it out. The non-unicycle for sale is a green schwinn. It's got some rust and wear, but so what. These marks are only from being ridden through manhattan as if the opening scene from Armageddon was coming down and I was Lance, I laugh at cancer, Armstrong. That **** is hard earned. Hold onto your butts, cause this emerald green schwinn is rocking two pedals, a chain, and mountain bike handlebars. It's wired up for five gears, could be wired for ten, or, if you're one of those "fixie fellows," grab a pbr and throw this bad boy into some single speed action. Front break? Hell yes. Back break? You bet your bottom dollar Oliver. If you've got any back wheel, just throw it on there and you're ready to roll away on what Nic Cage once called "...the nicest ****ing bike i've ever seen." If you want to strip it down and use it for parts, feel free. Break it down like the Beastie Boys back in 88.

Now, i know the price up top is a showy 40 dollars. Those aforementioned 40 bones, yea, those are negotiable. Let's talk trade. You got an old taxidermied rabbit? Perhaps an old lamp in the shape of the titanic sinking into a blue oblivion? Literally ANY Nic Cage memorabelia? Maybe some mud you found on the side of the road that speaks only egyptian? What I'm tryin to say, in case you're a little dense and can't quite seem to get the point, is that, not only is the price negotiable, but I am also more than willing to trade for something that has a *****in value equally or perhaps even greater than the emerald green schwinn. Email me, call me, let's talk.

Hilarious!! I'd almost buy the bike from the guy because he sounds like a rather witty guy I'd easily get on with!

It's an elaborate ruse to get that lamp without tipping off the owner that it might be worth something.
