You didn't mention the location. Oregon, Washington, or Colorado?

I think Street sellers may well be illegal due to presumably skirting regulation and taxes. I suppose it depends on the weedy source. But, I think for the most part they're ignored in the POT states. At least I've noticed apparently a lot more tolerance since legalization.

I agree with the green handlebar tape, and then white hoods.

I did that type of bar wrap with the old Benotto celo tape on a chrome frame track bike. It looked better since the entire bike wasn't as busy as this one is.

Interesting that the seller selected a photo of a HeadShok bike for the ad, assuming that it's not really a bike that's for sale.

Sorry, the ad was posted in Manhattan, New York. It's plainly for some kind of marijuana delivery service. I just thought it was funny.

Can you imagine paying $4500 for a used bike? I mean, how much faster do you think you're going to go?

About 180 mph faster than you would on a good solo ride?

Frankly, I'm amazed the seller is that clueless. There are so many Lime Bikes around almost anybody would recognize this immediately. Bet the first person to want to see it arrives with the cops

It looks like it was setup as some kind of a trick bike allowing the rider to spin the handlebars. I'm surprised the front end isn't perfectly symmetrical.

It is probably not made for 50 MPH hillside descents... unless one counts those concrete jungles some cities have put in.

You'd think rather than simply scratching off the decals, they'd paint it jet black.

Is it possible the bike share companies are selling the trashed bikes in their fleets? It would seem like a dangerous thing to do, as the bike styles are often very distinctive.

And, of course, the hubs, wheels, cranks, etc are worth more than $45.

That will be something that we'll likely see, as the bike share fleets of thousands of bikes age to 5, 10, or 15 years, and the companies deem them too expensive to maintain. Cheaper to just buy new from China.

Perhaps Craigslist is a new way to rid oneself of dockless bikes that get dumped on one's property.
