Just recently missed out on a beautiful 86(?) Cimarron in the hills north of my city. The headline on the ad? "Schwenn bike".

Maybe they just have the wrong pictures in their ad. Otherwise, there are so many things wrong here:
"all-aluminum" - did Schwinn make lugged aluminum frames??
26"??
"Cruiser bike"? with drop handlebars?
"Excellent condition"? with deluxe electrical tape handlebars...
"$220".....?

He's a flipper.

Check his listings - seems all his bikes have "26in" wheels. All his double crankset bikes are 21 speed and he has a Univega boom-bike Mixte and markets it also as "Aluminum"

He had an all-aluminum Schwinn 21 racer in pearl for sale in 2019. Possibly the pics in his current ad??

No, no, make it stop! If the pictures weren't posted with the misspellings I wouldn't believe it. I'm a bad speller, so I have some empathy for misspellings, but when it gets this bad and the name is clearly visible on the bike itself even in the picture, sheesh!

Sewing ???

Cchwinn ????

At least they posted pictures.

Just the AI doing tricks to enforce human correction to make the database more correct. It throws a crappy suggestion, while many don't correct it, those remain part of the DB. If they would be corrected enough times, the proper ones would be suggested.
