I Hope It Is a Joke because It Made Me Laugh!

https://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/bik/2615993838.html

This bicycle has been ridden for at least 1000 miles since the 2 years I have owned it. I just put new brakes on it, as well as new derailleurs, both on front and back. Sorry about there being no rear brake, but I figure that a front brake is enough for general stopping needs.

Additional modifications I have done were addition of a headlight (typically the kind fleet vehicles use as a reverse light), and a generic taillight which run on a 12 volt battery. It has a real car horn (safety is crutial for riding, but it needs a pushbutton as of yet), it also has a 12 volt outlet (you can charge your cellphone/MP3/iPod/GPS/etc, you can help stranded motorists or other bicyclists, or yourself if there is a flat tire when you have a pump, you can also use it for homebrew helmet lighting), there even a battery life indicator since I happened to re-use a control panel from a discarded portable jump box. I also have a rearview mirror from a car on the right handgrip.

Just as a reminder, you'll need a trickle charger, or some car battery charger in order to charge the battery provided with the bike. Be sure not to overcharge the battery, since it would be smart to use an automatic battery charger, or to put a timer in line with a manual charger. It is also feasible to put the battery in parallel with a battery maintainer if you also have a classic/seasonal vehicle alongside.

First time I've seen a bike with a dashboard and glovebox.

No rear brake, but "It has a real car horn (safety is crutial for riding)..." Um, yeah...riiiiight...

^ I AM in Detroit, and I have to admit I'd like to see this bike. I can't believe Bikemanbob passed on it! Bob, if I get this bike, can I bring it in to the shop for you to change the oil and do a front-end alignment?

"Near new condition...except for the small cut on the seat tube." The seat tube is cut all the way through! I like how the seller says "can be welded if you would like" as if riding without welding is an option.

If I lived in Dee-troit I'd make the trip just to see how big and heavy a battery he has in the plastic milk carton front basket with no rear brakes. Stopping that puppy from any kind of speed would be a fine test of skillz.

Huge pile of fertilizer getting spread out here:

https://miami.craigslist.org/brw/bik/2622644121.html

"I also checked the internet and noticed that Gitane TDF's are selling for around $350, but it also costs $165 to ship them! Why would I sell it for $100? I don't like to haggle. But I hope the buyer is someone who will ride it, not just someone that wants to resell it and make some money off of me." Sure thing, but the buyer pays the shipping they want it that bad.

I'd bet the farm he picked this up Sunday at a garage sale, there's way too much detail and drama going on here.

MISSONI FOR TARGET 28"BICYCLE COPPER - $1325 (DELRAY BEACH,FL.)

BRAND NEW LIMITED EDITION ON MISSONI FOR TARGET 28" WOMEN'S BIKE.
THE MUCH ANTICIPATED AND COVETED PIECE OF THE ENTIRE COLLECTION!
YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A PIECE OF MISSONI HISTORY! THE BICYCLE IS A WORK OF ART!

E-MAIL ANY QUESTIONS AS ALL SALES ARE FINAL.THIS IS READY TO BE PICKED UP TODAY!
SHIPPING IS ADDITIONAL AT ACTUAL COST TO YOUR LOCATION IF YOU LIKE.



-----------

For those who missed it: Target got stampedes in their stores last month as people fought to buy special one-time-only stuff by their pet Italian designer Missoni. The fugly bike pic'd above with those really bad acid-flashback zig-zag stripes all over has a Shimano 3 IGH and I think sold for about $400. There's also a black 'n white version that's equally obnoxious.

The flippers immediately started hawking all the special Missoni stuff on eBay with reported success for clothing and household stuff, but this bike hasn't moved in the month since. Maybe because bright op-art patterns just look better stretched across nice lady curves than all over some poor undeserving bike. Hate flippers, esp. @ 3x's markup.

Ouch. That brings back memories, including a neighbor's bike I painted. The more I painted, the worse it got. Guess orange peel finishes weren't popular yet in 1974.

Heh, one bike I painted as a kid I used a low grit sand paper and you could see every line through the paint. I also painted the seatpost... needless to say it was nearly impossible to adjust after that!

A small cut on center seat tube, which can be welded it if you would like.

It's just a flesh wound!

Black Knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: *Look*!

I have a road bike frame theat used to have gears and brake but now i took everything off and all i am selling is the frame and the crank is still on..the crank still has the three rings to put gears or if u wanna make it into a fixie u can just cut off the one of the rings or just take it to the bike shop..it has the pedals but one is missing so u would have to buy that..right now it is purple but for 10dollars i would paint it any color u want.this frame is great to make a fixie..i made a fixie using the same type of frame...down below i will show u how mined turned out..i dont ahve any pictures of the frame cause my camera is mess up but if u want a picture just txt me and i will take one with my phone 562 676 5898 txt please or just email me..100$ or make a offer..but money only..if u seem like a nice person i will probably lower price to 90$..
