Looking for an assist in Grapevine, TX…Dallas-Fort Worth metro area. Would be great to have someone pick up and pack a bike, but pick up and delivery to a bike shop would work too!

I am interested in bidding on an auction bike frame but the auction site states they do not assist in shipping arrangements. Do we have any forum members near Katy TX that could wrap some foam on this frame and stuff it in box for shipping? I will can compensate for time and materials. TIA

Can pick up at Mail Center in the USA, bring back to Canada and ship anywhere in Canada
Items willing to facilitate: Just about anything but bikes are very Expensive to ship in Canada

For items picked up in the USA I will need a invoice or PP receipt (picture is fine) for the goods. ALL FEES/DUTIES to be paid prior to picking up if in USA. In Canada I have a Canada Post business account and can get reduced rates on some items.

Anyone in/near Charlotte, NC willing to pull a set of headset cups from a frame and ship it (just the headset) to Seattle, WA? The frame would be yours as part of the deal.

1988 50th Anniversary Schwinn Paramount Frameset

Good afternoon! There's a gorgeous 25" / 63.5cm / my size 50th Anniversary Paramount for a very attainable price that would make a beautiful rider! It's in Oro Valley, AZ, just north of Tuscon. Would, of course, be happy to make it worth the effort! Thank you, regardless!

Ebay seller acepts UK buyer only

I found some thread gages on UK eBay that I could use in my making of old bike parts, located in Nailsea, United Kingdom. The seller will not ship to anyone outside of the UK, plus the buyer must have a UK eBay account. The price is very good, and modest. Anyone willing to purchase these tools and sending them to me? I can pay you using Paypal. Item is here:

Nice frame. Way too tall for me.

I'm in Phoenix, about 130 miles north, but a round trip to Tucson isn't too difficult. Plus it's an excuse to get some Lucky Wishbone steak fingers.

I actually drove up past Portland way exactly a month ago, but the car was so packed I don't think we could have squeezed anything else in, even a Paramount frame.

Is anyone near Sacramento? There's a Caad 2 touring frameset with some parts on it, no wheels. I'm looking for someone who can make sure the frame and fork are in good condition and aren't cracked anywhere, then help pack and ship after purchase. I don't need any of the parts and would be happy to let the facilitator keep those in addition to normal compensation. Can do PayPal or Zelle.

Hey guys! I've got a bike that is in Missoula, MT and looking to hitch a ride down to Colorado. It is already paid for, and there is no tight timeline, so if you are heading southwest-is in the next few weeks or months, please hit me up! I'd be happy to know how I can make it worth your while. Like letting you ride the Huffente

But yeah, if you can help please let me know! Thank you!

Looking for someone in Portland willing to pick up a bike for me and drop it off at a LBS to be packed and shipped to me. If you feel like doing the packing I can pay you for that too, I'll provide a bikeflights label. I can Venmo or Cashapp you for your services.
