He claims to have ridden both of these bikes in the MS150 a couple of years ago. A ride that has some long climbs that get more steep as you go. He must have thighs the size of watermelons, and calves as big as cantaloupes. The highest Super Pistas on ebay are no higher than the low $1400's,,,,BD

2 bike frames - $60
https://pennstate.craigslist.org/bik/4264723500.html

One Cannondale and one Giant frame.60 o.b.o. for the Giant. Bike is all there just needs some TLC. IT has some surface rust and small dents.
The Cannondale 3.0 is almost complete. Back tire needs new "guts" some surface rust. It needs some work but could be a Nice bike again. Would like 60 o.b.o for that.

lol, why not move one wheel over and sell one complete bike and one bike/no wheels? If he's looking for $60+$60, he could advertise "full bike for $120, I'll toss in almost another whole bike, just needs wheels"

Wholly @#$%ing @#$%.

https://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/4278506891.html



Retro Peugeot (French made) ~ Campagnolo - $895 (RVA)
Vintage hand made French frame, bright red and recently polished (high gloss). Built up with classic Italian made Campy components. Front and rear derailleurs are Campagnolo Nuovo from the 1970's. Crank set is a modern Campagnolo Chorus. Classic Mafac Racer Brakes with brand new Kool Stop salmon brake pads. Light weight aluminum wheels. Genuine bamboo Civia fenders. Brand new Tires and tubes. NOS Regina chain, gold finish. Anodized Gold Seat-post. Italian leather San Marco Rolls saddle with Gold trim. !Gold Anodized NOS Mavic stem! (EXTREMELY RARE). Cinelli Touring specific lightweight handlebars! Dura-Ace 10 speed bar end shifters, set up as friction shifters. New gold Jag-wire braided cable housing. Gold bar tape has a high gloss, water resistant finish. The bike has been given a professional tune up and is in superior condition. This bike is a living art nouveau painting, "Bling Bling" with the added benefit of getting you to class on time. $895 obo. *Picture is of bike with no pedals, but I have several pairs you can choose from for free (don't worry I'll install them for you too). Call, text, or email with interest xxx-xxx-xxxx. If this ad is still up it is still available. Thanks.
Not worth anywhere near that, but potentially the most over-built UO8 I have ever seen. Extra points for "painting" line.

My advice to seller: take parts off and sell separate-like. Sell frame for 10$.

It does need at least 1 part about 25 bucks

It's amazing how anything with gears is a "ten speed" to those with no knowledge. Somehow it's usually the same people that go into a bike shop and immediately ask to buy a Schwinn(because they're the best). They're also the same people convinced that if you even touch the front brake AT ALL, you will be catapulted over the handlebars to your death.,,,,BD

He's probably "going to fix it up someday" and 10 years from now it will be sitting in the same spot but 3 inches farther in the ground with the chopper laying on top of it.

Already sold, but I got a kick out of this one.

"Shanelli Handlebars with Triple P stem."

I'm ass-u-meing that they were Cinelli bars with triple T stem. He also only charged $2.24 shipping, and only got $10 for the item. Shipping will probably cost him the full $12. Add all the fees, and he should have just donated to his local co-op.

Great fixer upper sounds like "the more work something needs, the more you'll like it." Great is the amount of work needed.

He is not, however, $1000 ahead.
