Never thought I'd see the day a Schwinn would be that valuable to someone.
Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

So, it didn't sell for $3050.00 so he dropped it to $3025.00 and again it didn't sell so the next logical step is to raise the starting bid to $3099.98.

Meh. It's only a Schwinn . . . .
Besides, there's nothing on it for a hipster Drew to drew off of it.

I love sellers that raise their asking price after their initial overpriced starting bid auction ended with no bids.
Its like they think "Oh boy, my item didn't get a single bid at 20 dollars starting bid, lets raise the new starting bid to 30 dollars the next auction! I'm real smart at this logic thing!"
Hey, it's Waukesha.
Say no more.
Nice. One Inch Pitch. Love it.
Looks like a good deal to me. I would pop for that over a Cinelli or other super euro bike. Come on its an Emil built Paramount. Its the definition of vintage. Check out those hubs.
Let's see - no one on the entire planet was willing to bid $450, so let's raise that min. to $650! Yeah, that makes sense to me - not!
I can't figure out what has made these older bikes so valuable suddenly. You can't buy anything off ebay anymore. CL seems to be the only available avenue ---- and they are double what they were two years ago.

There was a chrome Paramount track bike at the Madison swap last month that sold for 5-600. If that wasn't a steal I don't know what is. I didn't really look at it because I thought it was going to be an arm and a leg. That's crazy though for this bike.
