Probably frame only, but the way the ad is written, seller comes across like the whole bike is for sale. Would clean up nicely.
Gotta be the whole bike! That would be fun. If it was close I'd get it just to clean it up. $40 is nothing.

Guys, doesn't it say $2,300 obo in the ad?

FWIW I had one of these at the in-laws in Bayern.

The bike didn't like weight on the front end and I usually only use front bags nowadays.

I much preferred their Atlantis.

If you do a CL search with a price range say $ 0 to $100 looking for deals then you get these $1 listings that pop up because that is what the price is listed at, it isn't until you click in the ad that you see that what they really want is $2300 so yes they do have the real price listed in the body of the ad but its basically a bait and switch as the listed price is $1. This happens enough I just start a $5 low end for my range to filter all that crap out/

Its a first world problem I just don't like the idea of saying its $1 oh just kidding I really want $2300 for it, just list if for $2300. Ok I will get off my soap box.

Seems like a case of getting the "deal" so I'll just say thanks for the info.

I just don't do this anymore. Too old for bargain shopping I'd reckon.......

Ok, that's fine with me... but I object to your use of "to" when the form you should be using, is "too", as in "...too far with the colour scheme." Not to mention, "thats" improperly used in place of "that's". Oh, I mentioned it, oops.

Yes , I do think they went a teensy bit too far..

Small frame Miyata TripleCross c.1991 (?), near Milwaukee. Great price ($75), great color. Changed wheels (an upgrade?) and other stuff no doubt. If this was my size and closer I would own it by now.
