Buy a car, get a bike for free?

Which probably says alot about the car

I found a non-running 1979 VW Beetle convertible that has been in a barn for 12 years. When I first checked out the car, I noticed and commented on a Schwinn World sitting behind the VW. The car wasn't very pretty, a lot of rust and dry-rot. I offered the guy $500 and left, thinking I'd never hear from him again.

To my surprise, the guy said he liked me and would indeed sell me the car for $500....

...and he would throw in the bike.

So, I bought a POS car and got a POS bike with it.

I find that really amusing.

I'll probably keep the bike and part out the car.
