Slap a tourney crank on a 94 C'dale, and suddenly it's worth $650?,,,,BD

Good luck finding a new full length seatpost for this one. It's a cut to fit the rider, "no going back" kind of thing. There should be another 6-10 inches of post showing, for it to be properly sized as intended.,,,,BD

The top tube would be level still, if that was the case? It looks like someone jumped it off of a loading dock wearing a backpack full of lead filled cinder blocks.,,,,BD

A badly repainted Aerowind? I'd recognize those frame tubes, cranks, and shifter location ANYWHERE!,,,,BD

Doesn't have the aero brake levers though.... Maybe it's a Huffy made right after the aerowind went bubbye? It has the Huffy stickers on the chainstay. Weird....

Just looked up some photos of the Aerowind. The appearance of that particular road anchor is quite distinctive. I think you are correct.

Actually the fork position seems about right based the really small size and sport geometry

I thought she was kinda cute, even with the thin lips. I'd pay $9.99 for the Rudge, not more.

Having to sell your nice original Rudge so you can afford to buy some britches would cause anybody sorrow. Times is hard!

Not necessarily wacky, but rare. I had never seen one of these before and had to look it up.

Delta 7 Ascend Road Frame 54cm - $1500 (Bentonville)

Beatuful Delta 7 Road Frame with an Enve seat post and fork. Very rare. Ridden less than 100 miles. This frame is light but super strong.

It's amazing how many people ask me if I will bring the bike to them so they can buy it. I don't mind meeting halfway if they are spending big bucks for a bike. But for $50-$75. Yeah,sure?
