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
.
You can get $100 or more for just the skip tooth chain, so it's not a bad deal for a nearly complete pre war or early post war bike? Try again.,,,,BD


Meanwhile, he finally went down to $500 on the Italvega. I only have to wait another year for him to hit $400, and I will begin to seriously consider this one. He started in 2011 at $900, and has been trying to sell it since then. At least once a week, it pops up with no takers. Maybe I should go look, take $400, and offer $350 to start?

When I saw the thumbnail I thought this was just another bike listed with no mention of how it had been crashed. Then I read "new in the box" and realized they're running the fork backwards. For... reasons?

Sunglasses included.

Hah, I like the picture of it upside down and laying on its side. I think those are supposed to be seductive or something...

Selling the ex-wifes bike.

I'm selling my ex wife's bicycle,she rode this bike almost everyday for most of the day.She's in a facility now and they won't allow her to have it,her doctors all say that her obsession with bicycling drove her to mental illness.Maybe your wife can enjoy this bicycle the way mine once did......There is a mile counter thingy on it and it reads 788,a bit high for a bicycle that's not even a year old..
I believe this is a ruse, but funny none the less.

That's hilarious, imagine some crazy lady riding that thing all day everyday! Not very impressive mileage though for a bike ridden almost everyday for most of the day!

^Way out of line for this sort of Peugeot. I bought one just like it with a broken front derailleur a couple of years ago for $15!

This comment wins!

I love this bike though, reminds me of SB's DIY tandems, where he frankenwelded two bikes in the other direction.
