600 dollars for a chris king headset! Pb bikes has lost it. Ridiculous pricing! I have personally sold him used items he then posted as new at 400% market value!

Miyata Touring Bike - Frame / Fork / Cantilever Brakes - $50 (Toronto)

https://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/bik/3921278063.html

"The frame is a really nice model with MIYAYA engraved in the fork crowns."

"Seatpost (may be stuck but at a nice height and not broken so not an issue)
The only issue is a crack in the headtube... the frame is steel so I'm sure it could be tack welded up..."

"With no crack I would sell the frame for $300..."

The seller actually expects people to believe this frame is in NOS condition and worth $650 with no fork.

1987 schwinn super sport


Rare
Super sport in excellent condition. This bike pulled Schwinn out of a certain death of the brand. When this bike came out itwas so far ahead of its time that it paved the way for the bikes of today. From its cinelli handle bars to the shimano 600 ultegra components and tenacious itailan made frame and Frigid rims this bike had every after market upgrade available already installed stock.only available in this color this bike was a game changer that all the rest followed. Definate piece of Schwinn history. Could part it out on eBay for easily over $1200 (go ahead research yourself)just don't have the time and moving so has to go. First come first served call or text David

Yo, srs 420 blazers only, tx.

[h=2]Bong For Bike - $500 (New haven)[/h]

Illadelph 18 inch Red Label water pipe
Ice notches
Custom Rasta label downstem
Party bowl that fits over 5g
Thick glass, never been dropped, treated with love
Zip up foam case
Stock bowl head
Well over $500, and illadelphs hold their value

Looking for late 80s -early 90s rigid MTB or hybrid
17-18 inch, or 22 inch
Cannondale , Bianchi , Specialized , GT , Gary Fischer , Trek
No $100 low end bikes, something of similar value, a trek 950, m800 , sirrus etc

No bs, no flakes , no out of state people with scams, cannabis is decrim here, and the piece has been iso'ed so well the nsa couldnt find a trace

Let a classic go from your stable, ive had a giant hybrid, and specialized sirrus stolen in the past 2 months, not interested and spending any more cash. Its sad but bikes are disposable where i live.

Im legit, honest, and responsible. The last batch of responses i got were crazy. People do love the illadelph brand

Some Denver fixie freak will buy into the delusion, and be riding it by the end of the month, claiming he can trackstand with one foot solely because of the rarity of the frame..,,,,BD

OH MAN I want that.

The grandfather clock, that is.

No, on second thought, it's probably a $5 modern plastic wall clock from Target that runs on two AA batteries and is framed in case of made brown foamboard and cardboard tubes.

Not to mention the orange plastic grip made from a material invented in the '60's...
