You don't drop that amount of cash on something you don't cherish... it just makes for a bad ad, and a fishy sale...

Because no one ever buys things on credit, sure they can pay for them later... ;)

Three i came across over the past two weeks that seemed decent:

Early 80's Schwinn LeTour Men's Road Bike Near New Condition - $250 (Chicago - Far North Side)
Schwinn World Sport Vintage road bike - $220 (60056)
Lotus - Exelle - Sport Series - 80's Road Bike - Made In Japan - $250 (North Side Of Chicago)

That Lotus is nice.

MasterJoda 12-28-10 11:18 PM

Holy **** chicago! Those things are expensive. South Carolina is the place to be for cheap bikes. I got a raleigh record for 20 bucks. Couldn't sell it for 140 so i traded it for a Bianchi Sport SX. The bad part is that if i ride out of my drive way i get run over.

bontrager kevlar tire on the back- NO MORE PINCH FLATS:)
Well thank god you can't get pinch flats with bontrager tires!

seau grateau 12-29-10 11:23 AM

Bontrager tires just don't pinch. Ever.

No wonder why this bike has been on CL for the past few months.
Just cause your in PDX doesnt mean you can jack up prices!!
Check out this scammer!
A VISP frame track bike for 1200. Its certainly NOT a Fuji Track Pro.
This bike is worth about 300 bucks if not less.

Scrodzilla 12-30-10 02:56 PM

Actually, I don't think it's a Visp. Don't Visp frames use a separate seat post clamp?

Where does it say something about it being a Fuji?

edit: Nevermind. I just found quite a few pics of Visp frames via Google that show integrated clamps.

seau grateau 12-30-10 04:46 PM

Lol at all the carbon.

xavier853 12-30-10 05:05 PM

looks pretty nice to me. Minus the risers

Scrodzilla 12-30-10 05:09 PM

But does it really look like it's worth 1200 bucks?

xavier853 12-30-10 05:32 PM

Yeah your right. Pass

fixedgear80 12-30-10 05:35 PM

Well darnnit...I was looking at the rear dropouts!
Very similar to this??

Anyways if your selling a bike for $1200 you should tell us what type of frame it is!
No I dont think its worth $1200
Which is why its been on C.L. for a few months.

Lilcphoto 01-01-11 01:52 PM

Why do I seem to always come across these ridiculously expensive 80's conversions yet they look soo tempting to bomb around on in the snow?

one of the more hilarious things i've found on CL, happened to be reading through the best of. Also theres one on sex, but I wont post that.

You figure out why that Sram shifter and that Shimano rear derailleur don't work together. While we're at it, you recumbent people scare me a little. Don't bring that lumbering ****ing thing anywhere near me.
