CL ad 25+ bikes (pic heavy)

I responded to a local cl ad for a lot of 25+ bikes. I live in a rural area, so I was surprised to see an ad so close to me. Here is the ad:

" I am selling my 20 year collection of some fabulous bkes.
At 80 years old I need the money more than the bikes!
Bring cash & large trailer or truck. $575.00 for ALL!

Men's -- Schwinn Traveler-X-tra Lite Schwinn Varsity 5-spd with baskets Diamond Back CRMO Mtn. 18 spd Westpoint -no spd Sportcrest - no spd Motobecane C. Itoh w/ child seat National Coast to Coast 12 spd Specialized Sequoia - Spd Nishiki - spd Rollfast
Ladies -- Hiawatha - no spd Schwinn - 3 spd Schwinn - 3 spd Penney's - no spd Columbia - 3 spd CCM Grand Sports - no spd Schwinn Sprint - spd Schwinn Collegiate Sport - 5 spd Schwinn Penney's Flight King - no spd
Child -- Small girl's
Carts -- Gerry Zoomer In Step Duo Sport"

The Sequoia really got my attention, so I decided to check them out. Interesting fellow, and the Sequoia among a few others were quite nice, so I offered him $500. He accepted and I'm very lucky to have an understanding wife and a large basement.

There ended up to be 30 bikes. I had a scrapper pick up seven of them - they were dept. store rusted junk. I dealt 8 of the lower end bikes and the Instep cart to a resale shop for $100 to recuperate some of the cost, and the rest I'm going to keep and flip this summer.

Here are the keepers:

1987? Specialized Sequoia - Suntour Cyclone, came with a park ccp-1, and park 14/15/16 wrench and other tools in the cannondale trunk, blackburn rear rack


Schwinn Traveler w/ new tires


Nishiki Custom Sport


Motobecane Grand Sprint


Diamondback DB Accent MTB


Schwinn World Tourist


'85 Schwinn Sprint


Schwinn Collegiate


Sportcrest Singlespeed


Schwinn Varsity
