I just turned down $300 for my 'well used' but well maintained 1972 Typhoon. Someone saw it sitting in the driveway while I was cleaning the garage. They stopped and tried to buy it and two other bikes I had outside in the driveway.
I've had it since new so its not for sale for any price but the guy came right out and offered $300 as his first offer. Mine is green.
I bought a pretty clean 1963 Fleet for $100 at a yardsale, it had flat original tires and an inch of dust on it. It cleaned up nicely, even the tires pumped up and held air. Its another bike I'll die with I suppose. The guy was asking $150, I pulled out a crisp new $100 bill and asked if that would buy it, and he took it.
