This has to be the funniest ad ever!!
 
There's a hilarious ad for a Campy Bottom Bracket in the DC craigslist. Enjoy :)

That is one of the best efforts to sell an otherwise low sex appeal item. Very creative soul.

The ad is great, it makes me want to buy it just for a laugh.

That ad is total bullsheot!, everyone knows that women prefer French threaded!

Only $25? The guy is truly desparate.

$25 for a Veloce BB doesn't seem that low. If I were selling a Shimano UN-72 I'd probably ask $20 or something, and that's an equally good BB.

Just don't go riding your Raleigh 26 tpi bottom bracket around Dupont Circle unless you know what you're doing! That's just asking for trouble :p
