New ad was posted they seem to have "straightened things out"
https://offerup.com/item/detail/93df...columbus&cid=7

We may need to give this seller a spot in the "Wacky" Hall of Fame - I can't imagine how many hours he has spent putting lipstick on this thing - If you click on his profile all the other ads for this bike are still there!

Yeah, it looks strangely incomplete to me. It doesn't have that return curve to normal like I'm used to seeing with the curved Paramounts.

Well that front derailer mounting is a little wacky, but the whole pile of bikes and parts for sale is well into the INCREDIBLE range.
Have you made a separate thread for this CL sale in C&V yet? It deserves one. So much goodness!

Anyone know who the seller is? Bill Stevenson maybe?

I posted the link in the "eBay/Craigslist finds" thread here:

eBay / CraigsList finds - "Are you looking for one of these!?" Part II

That thread gets a lot of traction. There have been over 260 posts in the week following.

Wait, which way is the $28 going? If that's what he's paying me to throw it in the trash for him, then maybe.

Here's my favorite part:



When the wood seatpost inevitably breaks (first time you sit on it), the protruding screw is there to rip you a new one. If the sharp spike of snapped-off wood isn't enough to get that job done.

This has to be a troll, right? Pretty funny though.
