    There are lots of things with asking prices that just sit there. In the case of 50th, I'd sell it together. I don't especially care for it, but the stuff has a market.

    I bought my c-17 yesterday. You were both correct, this thing is fantastic. Absolute love.

    FYI - the enter/return key is on the right hand side of your keyboard, roughly in the center. You can use it to break up monotonous blocks of unreadable text, like that above.

    I've done very well in the mid-range, quality commuter niche on craigslist. I'm talking about the $300 - $600 quality Japanese/Trek bike that is usually being bought by someone who understands bikes...

    I believe we both share the same opinion on the quality of his work. We are lucky to have craftsmen such as you two, frank the welder, drillium dude and Rudi in our midst....

    False modesty does not become you, as any of us who have your tinkering can attest. For sure Otis is a talent, and I hope to purchase his work some day, but yours is very fine as well.

    I don't really think that's provenance to anyone else, though it's nice ad copy.


    I can't remember selling a single bike on CL that wasn't test ridden, but I usually have placed the higher priced...

    This thread has made me realize how much I need to clean up. Time to get the wheels and tires hung for starters.

    I'm not quite sure why you, or anyone else, feels the need to justify their hobby to an obnoxious, self righteous seeming child. Adults with any sense of perspective tend to realize that there are...

    You need these:

    Your kids don't really need to go to college, or any food. And living outside in a dog house is a time honored tradition!

    That actually sounds pretty darn cool to me. If you're going to spend over $20 on a cage, you want it to be bling.

    Those bottle cages are hard to get now, at least the good ones. They apparently shipped production to china and you can really see the quality difference.

    That makes perfect sense. I'd gladly give you the serial number, alas it's hidden under a rather thick Litton repaint.

    What were the time lines for when you stopped using the cards? I'm sure that it's a product of my age, but I find them somewhat affected, and agree they were overly ubiquitous in the early 80s. I'm...
