    Craigslist find... a good deal?

    I was checking out CL and I saw this listing. I think the top right is the Raleigh right? I haven't asked him ny more about it, but I think I've seen those before. Would $50 for an old Raleigh like that be a decent price if it fits?

    They all look beat up.
    $10 to $15 tops. You would need new tires and tubes.

    Yeah, she's going to send me some more pics of the Raleigh. I thought it might be a fun project bike for the summer.

    If it's $50 for all four? Yeah, but not each.

    Takabrash Post this over in Classic & Vintage. It is a great group with a lot of knowledgeable people that live and breathe restoring older bikes in rough condition. They would be a great source of information as to the value of the bike and full of tips on any project bike.

    One warning they do demand before and after pictures that end up being downloaded and viewed more then a hot babe on the newest porn site

    Ok, I'll definitely see what they think. I'm not sure if it's $50 for all 4 or not. She seems nice so if I like the Raleigh and think it's good enough to turn into a fixie I'll probably offer her like $25.
