An honest bike seller:

My crappy bike for ??? (Logan Square)
Date: 2009-09-19, 5:45PM CDT


Hi all,

I'm on my last limb with my bike and I just want to get rid of it. Maybe it can be used for parts or as a fixer upper. It's a Huffy ladies bike, frame/handlebars/seat/tires are all blue, manual gear shifts. The handlebars are currently dripping a rusty liquid and one of the brakes isn't working. Maybe all it needs is a simple little tweak to fix that but I really know nothing about bikes. The tires should probably be replaced, they're pretty worn. Also, the handlebars are a little banged up from a little fall I had. I'm willing to part with it for a small amount of cash, booze, or bike accessories (helmet, lock, led lights, etc.) Any one of those would work but a combo would be even better.

The bike is locked up at the Logan Square blue line station by Kedzie where the buses come. Feel free to stop by there and check it out. I think it should be pretty obvious which bike it is based on my description but if there is any confusion it has a white and red section8chicago sticker on the front of the frame. I'm available to do the exchange at the station on weekdays before 8am or sometime later in the evening past about 7pm

I think cb400bill posted this bike the first time it was on craigslist. It looks like the price and description have been revised a bit. He still calls it rare but it lost a couple hundred dollars of value.

got a rare le tour-yellow/shwinn - $75 (kz,prt,vk,gal,bc)

Corima carbon fiber fork - 700c - $25 (South Beach)

Nice carbon fiber bike fork from Corima. Good condition, no cracks or damage other than a few minor chips...
Uh huh. I prefer my forks not to fail suddenly, thank you very much.

Every now and then you see a posting like that, and just have to watch it to see if it really does sell.

A race bike with flat bars (I guess those could be changed back), but how about 8 year old used sora components for more than you'd pay for a new bike similarly equipped:

When you hear the seller say this: "If you know anything about bike maintenance, this is probably for you."
Run far, far away!
