He might charge you $6 for the zip ties he used to bind your arms and legs as he throws you in the trunk.

Yeah, but then you'll have a story to tell all your friends (assuming you make it back alive). How much is that worth? $6 easily, no?

I wonder if this is some kind of joke or not. Maybe he really thinks he is posting on the CL from the Netherlands.

Bike seller on Holland MI Craigslist selling a Dutch bike for 250 Euros and claiming he is from The Hague.

Dear bbcbikes,

If I wanted one of your mechanics to tune it,
how much extra would that cost ?

He still has everything he has ever tried to sell since his first ebay ad, am I correct? It reminds me of this guy in Marksville, LA who was posting ad, after ad, after ad. Everyday for a year or two, the same bikes over and over, statewide in every LA city with a CL. Always the same bikes, always $250+ for basic model bikes with horrible vague descriptions and no pics. He had NOT ONE single clue what he was selling, or the value.,,,,BD

Somebody tell me this is a joke? horribly bent fork, possible bent top tube, stuck stem, and a cracked seat stay clamp. Even more surprising is that someone actually bid anything on it?,,,,BD

Vintage 1970s MOTOBECANE Nomade 1
I must be out of my mind! IM BASICALLY GIVING IT AWAY...feel free to do the research

Not much needs to be said about this model for those who understand the true worth of road bikes. The photos pretty much speak for themselves, but for those of you who dont know...
MOTOBECANE is a french brand that is no longer in business; therefore, the value is already raised. The Nomade model is extremely rare and worth a lot of money. Ive rode this bicycle one time, and it was an absolute dream. I describe it as the Cadillac of bicycles. It comes equipped with all original decals (which naturally boosts its value), all stock parts (which boosts its value), and in EXCELLENT CONDITION.
(27" wheel)
For those who collect or ride...this bicycle will stop ANY SHOW

The frames aesthetic cannot be compared, they obviously dont make bikes like this anymore. Its been sitting in my house as a form of art and decor for a while now until I did the research and found just how much it was worth.

THIS BIKE MAKES FOR A WONDERFUL INVESTMENT and A MARVELOUS RIDE.
Feel free to contact me at: 757.602.2691 if you have any questions, concerns or would like to state your reasonable price.
*** I suggest you do the research on this particular model and how rare it is to not only have one, but to own one in this type of condition considering its age!
(NO CALLS AFTER 10p) Happy riding!

It depends on the particular bike Motobecane mixtes ranged from low end 5 speeds top end full touring models. The low end ten speeds like this Nomad where the most common.

Barracuda Euro Tour


This is an exultant bike. New rims and tires, new pedals, new handle grips. Barracuda bicycles are out of Colorado. It has a chameleon paint job. (Green, Brown, Gold) This bike cost $3,499.00 new. I am letting it go for $500.00. I love it and will miss it. I need the money to get by on more.


If interested please call David at (605) or replay through Craigslist.

I'm dying of laughter already. I've got some old computer games made by Sierra Entertainment - they're defunct, so the value is already raised!!
