"I custom built this bike ( I am 5’5”) and it’s been sitting in my garage for about a year now so it needs a new chain and seat post. You can easily fix it up to be a really nice bicycle or sell the parts for a lot of profit."

I custom built this bike ( I am 55) and its been sitting in my garage for about a year now so it needs a new chain and seat post. You can easily fix it up to be a really nice bicycle or sell the parts for a lot of profit.

Whenever I see a CL ad listed for $0 I prepare to see the worst price in the ad text, but sometimes they still exceed my expectations. Usually I have minimum price set to $20 so I can avoid these listings. Plus: Schwinn, really?

SCHWINN UNIVEGA ALPINA S - 6.5 (Mpls, MN)

https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/h...960009249.html



This bike in excellent pre owned condition is valued @ 2,200 ! Google it ! Selling mine in excellent condition for 995.00 . Calls only !!
