Beauty is of course subjective, and you are entitled to your opinion.

I would draw your attention to the graphic depiction of violence in every sticker. I would be hesitant to characterize them as a celebration of affection for dinosaurs.

Nice ride for a 6 footer who likes purple bikes. $220. Triple-butted steel. It was Miyata's top of the line road bike for 1987. Has internal brake cable routing, so check for cracks along the top tube. I have seen these Miyatas appraised for $350 here, so it might make a good flipper.

Wants to trade for a BMX bike. Ad has been up for 2 days now, I guess Craigslist doesn't mind. It's a new era in the world of selling used bikes:

Am I missing something here? $350 for a rusty bike with a pretty rusted chain. Looks like it lived outdoors next to salt air of the FL coast.

This one is wrong on so many levels. I don't which is worse, trying to sell a $60 bike for $750 or the math he uses when you purchase the combo pack overpriced bike at $750 and the Chevy radiator frame for $40 for a grand total of $800.
