"Cup holders":



(***snicker***)

Vintage Bianchi Celeste Cup Holders

Come on! I'm sure that everyone here - especially @Bianchigirll - knows they're wine bottle cages - not cup holders

I like my Takaras, they are well built and in damn good condition and I bought them in ridable condition. But I don't have in both of them what this seller wants plus shipping for a frameset in horrible condition. In fact every Takara offered on eBay is priced ridiculously. I don't know that I would give a C note to get the Takara I rode in high school back.

You all know how I feel about gas pipe LOL and if they dropped the zero off the price I might even pick it up for "s#its and giggles". I like the color and it appears to be in decent shape, if you're gonna dream might as well dream big......

And what is that brand? Dizeta? Bizeta?

Are vintage BMX items so in demand that a pair of Oakley grips - in deplorable condition - are worth a $149 ask?

Judge for yourself:

Check out some of the links from feedback of other stuff this guy has sold,

https://www.ebay.com/itm/225352890048
https://www.ebay.com/itm/225085701686

If those are not just sock-puppet self-sales for self-promotion, this guy is raking in bank for old bmx parts

But yeah, I think those grips are, ahem, overpriced

I also noted the dood lives in Mountlake Terrace, WA. Used to have an apartment there back in the early 2000s.

Thanks for the links; at least those auctions were for parts that didn't appear salvaged from a dumpster behind the LBS

lol I have grabbed stuff out of a dumpster behind an LBS (and later ended up trying to sell it on CL)

(To my knowledge, my CL ad didn't end up posted on this Hall of Shame)

This one hits that rare blend of intentional comedy and a reasonable listing. I'd buy it if the seller would respond.

Merckx bike frame Campagnolo needs front end work - $10 (Portland)









$10
That’s right
$10

No low ballers
I know what I have
