So an hour before we are supposed to meet he gets back to me with: "Sorry but Hearn Cycle made me a great offer when they appraised it, so I went for the sure thing and sold it on the spot.

WTF??? Sure thing? How about following through on your word and meeting a buyer (me, and I'm sure there were others who contacted him), and if those fall through THEN selling it to the bike shop. It's not like I was going to offer $50 FFS.
Sorry for the rant, but the whole thing just left a bad taste in my mouth.
hazetguy,
Agreed a better way to negoiate (if not price was listed in the ad) would have been to call you from the shop and let you know what they offered and give you the choice to match..I am sure the shop did not "over"pay.
Been there before.

I feel for you. I once thought I had a deal with a CL lister, he said he'd hold the bike for me. I was enroute and halfway there (almost 2 hours from my home) when he texted that he had sold it. I only have a finite number of hours on the planet - time wasters in particular raise my ire, and dishonesty is almost as bad... Hope karma dealt him a particularly sh*tty hand.

I don't think I've ever seen a Bianchi in that color. I really like it. I'm a sucker for a dark green bike.

Me, too. Disassemble everything, clean the frame, then some compound, and finish with carnuba wax. I bet I could get that paint to shine again! Depending on how toast the components are, I'd put 105 from the era onto it.

(So just how does one post a CL picture? The way I used to do it no longer works.)
I use Google Chrome as the browser of choice for this website and I can just copy the entire ad from CL and paste it here and the pix come along. I go back for a second copy to get the URL and post it in the space I left above the original paste of the ad.

I guess someone bailed on their bid, last I saw it was at $570(+) and I thought might be a deal but no further info and for that money i'd want to see it.

Could be great deal for local resident - pick up only in Indianapolis, IN

As an aside, is the AD logo the best ever for a bike brand? (As for me; yes, yes it is.)

PX-10 in San Diego

https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/...630668078.html'81 Peugeot PXN-10 Super Competition - $250

image 7 of 7
I have for sale a 1981 Peugeot PXN-10 Super Competition in Pearl White. This bike is the same model that professional cyclists used in 1981. I bought it a few years ago with the intention to restore it to all original parts but never got around to completing it. Unfortunately the front wheel was stolen recently and I just don't have time to track down a replacement before I need to sell it. Everything is present except for the front wheel as mentioned, and it currently doesn't have brake cables as they were a little worn out. Complete list of parts below:

Back Wheel hub: Mallaird 700 Professional Team Issue (Original)
Back Wheel: Mavic 700c (Original)
Brakes: Spindel Side Pull (Original)
Brake Levers: Spidel (Original)
Handle Bars: Nitto Handlebar
Stem: Nitto Technomic
Seatpost: SR Laprade (Original)
Seat: Don't know brand, not original
Shifter: Simplex Retrofriction (Original)
Derailleur: Peugeot branded simplex derailleur (Original)

Selling for $250 OBO.

Need to sell ASAP, contact me with an offer.

Would make a fun city bike. Freshen it up, toss on new tires and a Wald and it would be a great market rider. Imho

I definitely would take a look of it were in town.

Nice Peugeot project bike $120. Been posted for at least a month. Not easy to sell a bike like this these days I suppose. Love the cool green paint job and graphics, and just a touch of chrome on the forks. Tons of tire clearance too, I bet you could easily fit 35 mm tires under those brakes.

- New Vittoria tires and thorn resistant tubes (replaced this season).
- New handlebar tape.

Looks like a PDG Series 5. Not in perfect condition, but for $100, I am almost tempted to go for it myself even though it is not my size....
