Not a bike, but look @ this idjit, thinks he's going to get $500 for a pair of Oakley factory Pilot sunglasses. Someone needs to inform him, that when new, they werent even $200(I remember them selling for around $125), so why would you think you could get $500 for them, when they werent even a 3rd of that new? Good grief.

Maybe it's just me, but that seat looks like it would be pointing directly at a very sensitive area, especially if one were trying to ride in the drops. Could be an optical illusion though, or perhaps some people find this comfortable?

You KNOW those old "carbonlite 103" frames are worth a lot...!

Since it is made of Carbolite 103, it's an entry-level frame...anyone hazard a guess as to the model? '83 P8 maybe?

There may be millions of AW hubs out there, but no parts to rebuild them with. It would take weeks to find them if you could, and by that time someone would be complaining about why their bike "isn't ready yet". Any real bike mechanic would adjust the shifter chain, shoot some oil into the oil port and shifter, and wait for the law of averages to work in his favor. Real bike mechanics honestly don't have the time to fool with rebuilding complicated 25+ year old hubs. Unless it's a single speed coaster, or a straight axle and bearing hub, it's really not cost effective. It's not making you money sitting in the back of the shop waiting for parts? You can call and ask that question, but 9 out of 10 times the answer will be no. The shop employee will then breathe a sigh of relief, before moving on to recabling the 5 year old hybrid hanging on the stand.

And yes, a few months ago I witnessed a 23 year old mechanic take the back wheel off of an 85 Schwinn Traveler. He stared at the freewheel for about 10-15 seconds and said.... "How the heck do you take this thing off?",,,,BD

A "Buy It Now Price" of only $1000. But it does come with a lambs wool seat cover. I do like the Weinmann concave rims though.

Soma "prestige" frame and build. Killer 58-60in" lavendar frame - $300 (cap hill)

I can't beleive how many people want big prices for half finished fixie conversion. But this has to be one of the highest prices.

Dig that second pic of the fat finger pointing to what is described as the "SPEEDING IN FRONT"! Someone has an old road bike to sell and no clue what's worth so a grand is a nice round number.

I have never seen a freewheel this worn out. Only $10.00 with shipping included is $9.99 to much.

Well except for the large frame I'm pretty sure all the other claims might be incorrect. This does not look at all like a race bike and that does not appear to be a brooks racing saddle. As for ridden in the Tour DeFrance that is just crazy.
