I could facilitate.

Good thing it's way too small or I'd be on the N right now.

Schwinn Varsity cheap Montana

​​​​​​https://kalispell.craigslist.org/bik...301368080.html
​​​​​​

1965 Schwinn Varsity - $75 (Bigfork)


1965 Schwinn Varsity 10 speed. 58 cm frame. Bike is ready to ride. The paint is fairly chipped. But apart from the handle bar wraps, all looks to be original.

Nico in San Francisco for $100 - obvious replacement Rd and possible dent (?) top tube between 1st and 2nd cable clamps (or maybe old sticker?)

For fun click on first photo and after it opens, tap photo rapidly twice as seller stood in same spot and moved camera so bike just bounces around

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/bik...301444488.html

Vintage Road bike - $100 (burlingame)


Rides but needs new tires and brake adjustments. 53cm frame with 21 gears and 27” rims. Model is a Nico

He can't count either: that sure doesn't add up to 21 speeds AFAIK! Interesting that this "Niko" looks very much like some Centurions, was it another brand from the same importer?

Raleigh NC - Surely $75 for a Diamondback is fair, even if needs a bit. Unsure if rear is a tubular or just deflated

Early Schwinn foray into having frames built in Japan. Seems a bit high on the price, but I have no real idea. Looks nice. Hopefully the rear dropout eyelets aren't missing.

It does look like an Elite paint job. Think you could pay them with these?

Looks to be in excellent original condition, with both baskets, in the large size. Somebody please buy this.

And the enthusiasm of C&V members for Centurion IM DS has not gone unnoticed. Hmmm....

They are posting a picture of the bike in each case.

For some reason, some users can't get those pics to load, which may be the case here. With those pics, 1000 words have been saved.

Really? Sorry about that, then.

I'm on Firefox on a laptop and have never seen any images. Any clue what might be the problem? I don't even see an icon to represent an image, or an indication of a broken link.

I don't really know, but I recall having the same issue for a short period of time a year or two ago.

Here's the only thread I see in the Support forum that seems applicable, but I did only a cursory search.
