I figure if a good deal sits for a few months, this scenario is probably likely. Some version of seller neglect is happening.

Curious about this one. Not high end, but maybe a little earlier than normally seen. Decent parts pick up, anyway.

Classic Mercier road bike - $90 (Chicago)

CL Chicago Mercier
Steel frame vintage Mercier road bike circa 1970 with classic features but performance upgrades. Mavic breaks, Campi rims, Puget detailer, new crank - running sow ups. Smooth and easy ride for a steal bike. Replacement metal toe guards and modified with up bars for more of a cruising geometry. Original owner. Available with extra tube and tube accessories.

My favorite college bike. Bike thieves' favorite too. Had a couple of them. Both stolen.

Specialized Hard Rock 1988 $50 Westchester, IL

Facebook IL Hard Rock

All original except for seat and pedals brake pads. Condition is rough needs some tlc, rear rim is slightly bent and needs a derailleur cable and a servicing.

Nice bike!
Hopefully @juvela will be along soon to remind us of the provenance of those unusual cranks.

This is a rare 1985 vintage rockhopper. You can't find these anywhere and they go from 450 to $1,500. This is a great deal for anyone who knows about bikes.

Santana Cilantro - $200 - Del Mar, CA
https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/...658480953.html
"This is a 90s Cilantro with 26 wheels that was originally set up as a mountain bike, although it was probably never ridden as one. We bought it in near new condition and converted it to a road setup with drop bars and 8 speed 105 shifters. Lots of paint chips, but no dings, and in great mechanical condition. Lots of high quality parts:
- Swiss Edco hubs with 40 spokes and Velocity rims. Front rim is brand new.
- Arai drum brake.
- Near new Michelin tires.
- XTR rear derailleur
- Paul cantilevers in front and Shimano V brakes in back
- Cane Creek Thudbuster ST rear seatpost.
Bike as shown is set up for 57 captain and stoker. Could probably be adapted for captains down to 55 with a shorter stem, and stokers down to 52 or so. Upper end would probably be around 510 front and back."
