Maybe I'm misinterpreting sarcasm, but that bike sold for about $300 brand new. I'm not sure the analogy applies.

My mistake. I thought it to be a good deal and selling it when she left the house sounded like a touch of fixing her wagon. Sorry to muddy it up.

Now heading into its 3rd year of being listed on Chicago CL, the price on this Kalkoff has gone up! I'm pretty sure it was listed at $450 for the last 2 years.

This Gardin has been listed and re-listed for close to 3 years now too and always in the $800 range. He puts it up once a week or so.

This guy is so freaking brutal, i don't want to see his ad ever again, i wish craiglist had a filter or block option where you don't have to see someone's posts over and over.

Fixed/Free Artist Bike

Custom powder coated schwinn world sport 56cm frame, this bike was maticuliously painted this way mind you this is not spray paint. It was baked with a white base then sprayed with different colors then baked again. Everything on the bike is new except the stem. The wheels,tires,tubes,bottom bracket, bars,grips,chain, and crank are all new. I'm asking $300 great bike ready to ride please call or text

I don't think the bike was the only thing that was baked twice.
