Free Bianchi!

Craigslist (France): Free Bianchi bicycle! Recipient must pick up bicycle. Location: Foot of the valley of the Col de la Bonnette-Restefond, near Jausiers. Bicycle is in immaculate condition. Minor scratches to head tube, top tube, down tube, seat tube, seat stays, chain stays, and fork. Handlebars have been crumpled in grip area, perfect molding of rider's grip. Brown stains on saddle should wash off. If you can find it, it's yours!

Front wheel needs "slight" truing. This is a top end bike, plus it is the discontinued Barlo World colors.

If we do that one piece at a time, we could be here till the Vuelta a Espaņa is over!

How slightly used are we talking? And will you throw in a near-mint condition roundabout warning sign?

Might be easier to ride it to the bottom rather than drag it back to the top.

That was steep, but I'm from West By God Virginia. I have went over mining high walls before to get my dog out of a creek! If I were there that bike would be mine! All you have to do is slide down to the bike, then walk the wreckage down to the road below. The bragging rights alone would be worth it. I can see it now, "hold my beer, and watch this........"
