I think the seller was fishing for offers. Collected a few offers than decided he had a bike he could price like it was in mint condition and fully restored....

Two weeks ago, a Schwinn Volare frameset caught my attention on eBay. Orange with chromed lugs, but a fair amount of chipped paint. Nobody was watching it. Seemed overpriced at $375 BIN.

The ad expired and the seller relisted at $750 BIN! Within a day, 25 people were watching it and, a few days later, someone bought it at that price.

Not familiar with the brand, but the components look good, it's got a cool black wheelset, and sweet smoke paint job.

Vintage 1970 Bertin Project Bike - $99 (laurel hts / presidio, CA)

Vintage 1970 Bertin Project Bike



1970 model Bertin 12-Speed bicycle. All original vintage retro racer. Not ridden since about 1990. Needs new tires and plenty of TLC; all parts original and intact. Would make great restoration project or build a mean old-skool fixie. First $99 cash takes it. Sold as is, you pick up in Presidio Heights area. If the ad is up it's still for sale.

Geez, that's a nice one. The Huret Jubilee RD could almost fetch that price by itself.

Goes without saying, but be very thorough in your inspection given the "surprised it's still for sale" bit. If it checks out, sweet deal on a cool 80's paint job Fuji. That fork crown is dope!
