    Any experience something like this: craigslist ad for a custom, handbuilt frame with breezer dropouts and other cool stuff, posted for a hundred bucks. I call on it and the guy tells me the price was just to generate interest but he actually wants 450$! I say I don't understand why he put 100$ in the add if he wants 450$ and he again says "just trying to generate some interest." What the H. E. double hockey sticks does that mean???

    BTW, turned out that he had built the frame, and rather shoddily it sounds. According to him he made the rear triangle too small so it could only fit narrow tires. Really sounds worth the 450$ . . .

    Craigslist has definitely become very competitive. Used to be you could catch things hours or days later. Now it's down to minutes and people trying to out-offer the guy before them.

    The irony is that I missed it because I was busy searching ebay for a titanium frame. There was nothing available locally but when I clicked the refresh I found it had been posted about 20 minutes. All it took to miss out on 500 smackers, but I guess that's part of the game!

    Nice looking ride, but too early for a hand job. Doesn't seem right to have an old steel Ibis without a hand job.

    It is never too early for a hand job! Maybe if you ask nicely the seller would include one?

    I think the handjob came to be in the 90s. But the early classics from the 80s were lacking that "gimmickry" in lieu of the nice seat cluster with the scalloped seat tube and the fillet brazed seat stays. To me the early customs with the Type II forks and LD stems are truly one of the classic norcal classics.

    Hmmm. What was the listing price? A Type II alone would be $450ish. If you could still get one made...

    I was actually surprised no one grabbed it. Here's the listing---started at $650 and didn't get anywhere:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ht_9648wt_1026


    And I agree about the "hand job." Same goes for the "Moron tubing." Just seems kinda dumb to me.

    I agree about the moron tubing, but the hand job was nicely done so I always considered it more than just a gimmick.

    I just like the way this one looks in the photo, bent fork and all. At least it is cheap, though maybe not much below market for this model...

    The only info I can provide is that you just brought them to the attention of just about every person who would likely be bidding against you. If they hadn't seen the auction yet, now they have. Not wise.

    Or its your auction, in which case you need to buy a classified.

    Considering its your first post, and the locations are both in Loveland, CO, my bet would be on the latter.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Just Curious

    No, it's not my auction, the location sparked my interest because it is local to me, and I am just looking for info because I am intrigued by early CNC manufacturers.

    Per ECS:

    "While the title of this thread may make you think it is "For Outing Stuff", (scroll up and read Mendon's introductory posts), it's was actually supposed to be a thread for the guys who are for/against outing to bang bars, and discuss why each other are wrong.

    It also eneded up being a place to "out" ridiculous CL stuff for fun.


    Posting a link to a decent vintage bike might get your hand slappped. "


    After re-reading MCS' initial posts, I'm assuming this thread is no longer for discussing whether or not "outing stuff" is a-ok, but rather a place to post links to ridiculous CL stuff, as pointed out by ECS. People are not supposed to post cool bikes or good deals - just funny stuff.

    But then again, I could be wrong?
