    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.

    When you get older, much of your hate comes from knowledge and experience, which is why really old people hate everyone

    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:

    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.
