If you want to see another example of asking stupid money for something, on the same day in OC. He had it listed for $750 last week so he has come to his senses.
The wheels might be worth $100.

CUSTOM BUILT FIXED GEAR SCHWINN - $600 (COSTA MESA, CA)
This bike is custom built and has a green, vintage Schwinn frame (mid '70's) w/ original bar tape and original paint. It is currently set up as a fixed gear but has a flip flop hub so it can be changed into a single speed. Also has Velocity gold rims and new tubes. This bike is a one of a kind. Selling because I don't have time to ride anymore.

mens bike - $80 (dsm)

ok not going any lower than this for this bike $80-$100 is my lowest & if yer gonna pay $80-$100 yer not gettin the bike lock and cable or tire pump unless you pay the full $125

I've ridden it and had a really bad asthma attack so unfortunately I can't ride it. I ask $125 cash if you want the bike lock/chain to(keys included) and tire pump. It has caliper brakes and front suspension.

My time is fairly flexible if you want to come look at it please contact me and do so before dark. There's 4 ******* still on the loose and drake isn't the best area to begin with so I will not leave the apt after dark. Thanks for taking time to view this, I hope i can sell it.

I've replaces the tires, tubes, and rims total cost was $120. $125 plus the bike cable/lock & tire pump is practically a steal. Come check it out before 8pm thanks.

Another thing is there has been guy that think i'm stupid or something they say that each year the manufacturers change the colrs of a bike from the previous year. That is both bull**** and lie each color change is also a model change. Here's why: 1) imagine this if there was 6 different color changes for 1 bike model that were different from last years model do you know how confusing that would be? 2) last I knew each bike model had its own set of colors, markings and variation.

To change any of those the next year is to also change bike models. I encourage you to look it up and find out because anybody who says that bike model stay exactly the same but colors change due to customer getting visual bored if a liar. There's a men roadmaster on sale at walmart yes, but it's not the same colors, markings, or even the same model as mine. Honestly my bike the exact model " roadmaster mt sport sx" isn't even sold in walmart anymore. What is sold is a cheap lesser quality of the brand not the same model as mine.

ok first pic ifs taken with my cell sorry was abit blurry
the pic nxt to it is the same bike but a clearer pic i found mine has shiney newer rims not black rims

Ha, I found one of Trek's carbon/aluminum bonded bikes at the flea market over the weekend and the seller insisted it weighed 5 lbs...

Getting back on topic - how about this "Vintage Italian bike" made by Fuji... He also has an Italian Univega for sale.

Giant Hipster ******bag Bianchi Fixed Gear Track Bike w/ Nexus Hub - $600

Hi hi,
Are you a gangly monster in search of the perfect bike? Do you buy your tight, black jeans with an inseam > 34 inches? Oh man, do I have the perfect ride for you. I'm selling a chrome 62cm Bianchi Pista track bike, the absolute limit in velodrome racing technology and the perfect accessory for rolling up on any Mission location. It comes with two very different rear wheels: Wheel #1 features the original fixed/freewheel hub, and Wheel #2 - much the same as Wheel #1, BUT... this one is laced to a Nexus 3-speed hub for your gear-shifting pleasure! Oh, and what's this? It comes with a big, black U-lock you can jam in your belt? Yes, it does!

Are you still reading this? Do you have $600 or Something Awesome to Trade + $X? Email me an email! Right now! Pictures on their way.

It could very well be a neutral support bike from the 80's. Cool to have.
