Not too bad of a price I guess.

Hey, it's not a bike, but y'all might just enjoy https://richmond.craigslist.org/boa/2781786672.html this. That is, if you need your very own pirate ship...

Apparently the seller thought it inadequate. It's re-listed, now with starting bid of $799 and BIN price of 1299. Now this is getting interesting, just wish I had ever seen one of these bikes to have any idea what it's value might be.

^ Same seller also has a more affordable Motobecane "racing" bike for sale (though I can't guarantee it comes with a saddle).

after reading that listing I'm thinking more like Jethro chasing Miss Drysdale around the concrete pond. While granny cooks up 'possum and biskits.

I just had a guy email about a CL ad I posted informing me that there were no road bikes made in the '80s equipped with cantilever brakes. He then went on to tell me that the only reason that mountain bikes were spec'ed with cantilevers is so when the brake cable broke the straddle cable would grab the knobs on the tires. I know he knew what he was talking about since he informed me that he had built a hundred bikes last year and sold them.

Sadly, many CL users suffer from rectal-cranial inversion.

When you guys post "colour pathways " like this, I can never find a stick to poke out my eyes fast enough. That's an insult to ugly.
