I am willing..... to negotiate price at the time you show up to see it,
I will ignore low ballers, promise. ^__^
~This is a Prime collectors Adult historic bicycle right here*
Adult or kid size, I am over 6 ' and can ride comfortably.

SPYDER Facts: This sears ad features the 1970 five speed, they upgraded
to 10 speed in 1973. This is the first diamond type frame sold.
This is when they switched from roundish frames to this making it
the Alpha of what we have today. Still has little curve on bars beneath
the seat. Has a double top bar, and ape hanger handle bars, banana seat.
This is the rarest, they are not anywhere to be found except here.
orignal wheels also. All works very well!

I am willing..... to negotiate price at the time you show up to see it,

MANTA Facts: Sting Ray ape hangers, extra large banana seat, orignal wheels.
Frame paint completely removed and fine-ly sanded, with clear coat protection.
Make it any color you want. I left orignal green on forks & chain guard.
Tires are very good shape. All works well! ONLY MADE 2 YEARS: 71-72.
The Schwinn Manta Ray is the Adult size Sting Ray, and feels just like you
are a kid on a Sting Ray. This is a rare gem.

"ounce started"

I wonder if it cost extra to have the front brake installed correctly?

I emailed the seller, no response. If this is a real deal, it is so appropriate he is near South Park (Mall).

Blue book value

I've sold this bike years ago and the used priced is way overpriced.

In good shape it would sell for $150 up here in the Great-white-North but I feel that the Blue book is way off most times.
I have a near mint Raleigh Clubman from 2012 with under 10 miles on her. The book suggests a ridiculous price when some potential buyer quoted it. Told them to go check a new one and get back to me.
I'm not asking near what I paid and not making a profit but ...

Anyone else feel the same?

It Mentions "Bike"?

***FREE MAN BUN***

(Mercifully, No Photos)

"Just severed my ****** doughnut after growing it for three and a half years, during which time I followed a stringent hair care regimen that included thorough lather/rinse sessions with Philip B. Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo followed by intensive conditioner treatment with Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore and Kiehl's leave-in conditioner. The bun was protected from sun damage at all times with Clarin's Broad Spectrum SPF 30 hair sunscreen. Professionals at Raleigh's premiere salon, Alter EGO, worked their restorative magic on the bun bimonthly.
Now I have a big, beautiful knot of detached brunette mane and would very much like for it to go to a good home. The hair is being stored securely in a plastic Food Lion grocery bag. First come first serve.*

*Poster will not accept the following free items in exchange for free hair: salt life stickers, fill dirt, dirt bikes, tattoo work, emu bezoars, homemade jorts or amateur taxidermy. All other offers will be considered, but will likely be refused."

https://wilmington.craigslist.org/zi...419920092.html

(I'm not trading away my emu bezoars; someday they'll be worth a fortune!)

he should donate it to one of those charities that makes wigs for cancer patients.

Although I think they typically want a solid 12" of hair, maybe they can't use less, practically speaking

It's only bike that asks either "Can you find all the triangles in my frame?" (there are 3,847 BTW), or "Name all 17 geometric shapes (including made up ones) in my frame!" Heck, there's a flippin' square in the thing!

Also, you could lean two or three of these against each other, chuck a tarp (ok, canvas since we're going to church up the camping experience) on top and have a solid tent when going bike-packing or bike-camping. Doubles as a clothesline for after you jump in a lake.
