    I wouldn't be a sucker and fall for this one.

    Take a look at the seller's rating. They have 5 negatives and only 34 positives. BUYER BEWARE!!!
    Does the perfect bike really exist?

    Anyone ever see "Death to Smoochy"? reminds me of the Parade of Hope charity. the one that took a hefty slice off the top as skim.

    It doesn't sound like it is a legit fund raiser if you cannot use a tax deduction before you bid on anything check it all out. Let the buyer beware
