Great Bike

This is classic. Not sure how long this listing will stay up.

"Great bike for sale it’s been wrecked a few times left outside for years but with a little fixing up and some duck tape it will ride like a champ. I figured,I could get retail prices because I only bought it 5 years ago and I still think it’s in perfect condition..was asking $400 but now, I want $500 because I had to spit shine and take a picture, that’s extra Right? I want every Penny I can get for my old used bike..."

It's not far off from what I see now from people who are serious, probably due to temporary shortage of bikes. But there's still some reasonable deals too thankfully.

I've definitely seen a spike in prices on Craigslist. Amazing how many bikes with rusty nuts and chains are being presented as nearly new and only ridden two times.
