Lot of Bicycles on the Bay

Anybody want to get into the flipping business with a massive startup inventory costing $750? I wonder what the condition of these bikes are? Calling anyone near Easton, PA!

Its been up there several times. Bikes look really low end and well picked over to me. But if someone wants to go for it.... In my experience, it is much better to flip something up the foodchain a bit, where the market value of a completed bike is higher.

I saw that one. They're about 1-1/2 hours northeast of me but that looks like a lot of work.

If I was located in a college town or urban area where I could move them quickly, it might be worth looking into.

Bring a truck. I'm about a 1/2 hour from Easton and would be happy to help you load up.
