I just ran across this CL ad. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/bik/2182019760.html
It's a call out to see if the bike he/she bought was stolen.
I see these ads from time to time. Seems to be more frequent nowadays???
I'm thinking to myself this person is just trying to justify buying stolen bike.
The price must have been so good that he/she knows that it is stolen, but still wants the bike and is giving the original owner a chance to claim it if it is indeed stolen to clear his/her conscious. He/she is making it seem like they are doing a service? BTW, he/she wants to get paid for the price of what he/she bought it, even if it is stolen.
The dood or doodette isn't even going to ride the bike, he/she is going to part it out.
Do you think this person is full of him/herself or is actually doing some good?
I've read post that says that even if someone has a partial idea that an item is stolen, then they are still knowingly buying a stolen item.
BTW, this is a singlespeed/fix gear bike, that's why this is posted in this forum.
I attached the ad so we can save this when the CL ad expires:
