Anybody need an 86 CM Trek 1000? The seller did say the size is approximate.
Tallest bike ever.

Stolen? You would think that a real owner would know his bike.

Aye, you would think... Work in a bike shop for a while, however, and you quickly come to realize that it's often just not true.

Take your eBay ad copy and picture straight from the Walmart website:

20" Mongoose Massif Boys Fat Tire Mountain Bike, Black/Yellow: Bikes & Riding Toys : Walmart.com

Sell a $197 bike for $294:

Mountain Road Bike All Terrain Massif 20" Boys Massif Fat Tires BMX Sand Cruiser | eBay

I'm guessing that after purchase the "seller" has Walmart ship direct to the buyer & puts a quick $97 in his pocket.

^^ Seller has ZERO feedback, so likely he pockets all $293.99 and disappears before PayPal and eBay come knocking.

$125 is a steal for a Stumpjumper. Even $250 for both bikes would be a decent deal and you would have both wheels.

Vintage Skip Tooth Bike.
Awesome old Bike, what you see is what you get, there are no extra's not shown, there is no badge on the bike so im not sure of manufacture.
Price is $200. Cash firm, no less.
If your serious and want a super cool old collectable bike and have the cash contact me.

I will consider trades or part trades for plywood, 2x8's, 2x6's 2x4's at a discount rate
