    Craigslist Comedy

    I have to share this latest ad that just showed up. It is really funny when the scammers aren't even sure what they are trying to sell and the features list doesn't quite match up to the bike.

    I find it interesting that the seller of this 1987 is so proud of this bike. It’s been continuously relisted on Craigslist since July or August for $2600 and has not been changed. With the dented and possibly rusted tank and weathering on the left side of the handebars it’s nice but not perfect. Either he’s very patient or very optimistic.

    I think you may have embarrassed the seller Gastone for he has taken down the add.

    Hey Fred, unfortunately it’s still listed, and for the same price as he started with last summer. He must start from scratch each time he lists it. It appears he’s very firm on his price. Lol The funny thing is there have been numerous newer and nicer machines for less money listed during the last few months, and he still hasn’t budged. He is certainty committed. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for getting the most you can from what you’re trying to sell, but it seems like a lot of hassle to have an ad on Craigslist for months and stay firm on a price that isn’t working.
    Maybe some forum member is looking for an 87’.

    I can see the 83081 add now that replaces the taken down 73732 older add. Other than the rusty dinged up tank I can see why owner is proud of it although I would not buy it for half the listed price.
