I hate CL ads like this,

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/wvl/bik/2659606514.html

What would be a "fair offer"? And what are the sellers presumptions on what a fair offer is if they cant even list the components in the ad?

They gave you a phone number to call. Do they not answer?

Yes it's a stupid ad. Most on CL are. Just call and ask what they want for it. At least there are some pictures, although they're almost useless.

I always flag those ads since CL is not an auction site.

Say you would offer $50.00, then they will say thats to cheap and tell you about what they are really trying to get out of it.

Who is Francisco Moser? Francesco's cousin?

Jokes aside, the bike is not in very good shape, neither is it rare. The pictures are bad but you can see that a washer is used on the seatpost bolt.
Call and ask, if seller insists on an offer, offer very low.
