Saw this on Farcebook Marketplace. According to the seller "Small dent on down tube - Just cosmetic, does not impact the frame.
No bends or breaks." That is the largest "small dent" I have seen in a while. Only $350 for the Cannondale F700 bike with the small dent.

If you want something like this, $550 is probably a decent price.

Official Chester Cheetah "Cheetos bike." Somewhere I have a photo of me on one of these posed in front a Rocky Mount NC bike shop. The bike had been shipped there for assembly and for presentation to a contest winner. Fifty bucks for this one.

Fork is bent. Frame is bent. It's in extremely grody condition. And it's only $500.

Pretty clean aside from where it looks like it's been gnawed on.

"Wopodrup," but at least it costs less than a grand. $975 in MD.

The fork, at least, is relatively straight. I guess that's what makes the condition "fair"
