Only $50

Likely New







I would think if you were the legitimate owner, you would know whether it is new or not?

Reply to: see below
[HR][/HR]has shimano brakes and gears, schwinn super soft seat, super elite wheels, other extras. make an offer. email ron09517 at aol dot com

additional info: gear selector levers, pedals, brake handles and brakes are all shimano 600. the tires are 700x26c so i think this is a 26" bike. stickers on the bike show- "limited" across the top bar, bianchi formula columbus on the front fork, del mondo 1986-1987 on the front bar that goes down. it has two drink holders, dual lights and an odometer. this bike has been sitting inside and now used for the last 10 years.

i've researched this bike and found the frame alone sells for 800 to 1500 on ebay (actual sales-not asking prices), all the shimano parts retail for from 1800-2000, this does not include the wheels, seat, handle bars, lights....asking a fair price of 1200.00 OBO



That seller is severely deluded - if I'd have seen this before my trip, I'd have dropped in to see this just to talk to him/her in person

lol, I was going to post this exact same ad here. It might be a legitimate offer. Maybe, it's a 853 frame with di2 and Mavic Ksyrium SLR Road Wheelset. Oh wait, that only came up to be about 6000$ and it is clearly a fixie. shucks.

Since it says "San Jose" on the top tube (retail value: $750) have to wonder if seller added an extra zero by accident. Price would still be too high, but would be explicable. Somewhat. Barely.

He got this part right though?

"There are road bicycles.
And then there are classic FUJI road bicycles.

As with high fashion or sports cars, seasoned cyclists know that
a bicycle like this is more intimately yours, a more personal possession
than a bicycle of other origin."

There were 5 or 6 pics, two of which you could see a small K-Mart on the stickers....Perhaps he is too young to remember K-Mart! ;-)
He posted 5 other bikes at $30 each.....this one should join those!!!
