I use the "reply" button. Then you know I replied, and don't take a bunch of space up with shit you already read.

I bookmarked a CL motorcycle search with -harley typed in. That weeds out half of the stuff that Im not interested in.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

y'all every use auto-alert systems like "IfThisThenThat" or whatever? I setup some apps to perouse CL and alert me fore specific keywords, tomas and derbi, good 50 shifties or mopeds etc. It works, sends you a note almost as soon as stuffs posted, but I dont think I actually wound up getting good deals that way, just felt extra FOMO for not getting stuff...

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

My old bike spotted on cl. Gave the dude a super deal and now he's selling for a fortune 🙄. It was a fast bike made with all used parts I had laying around, rode it daily to lunch.

I recently sold two bikes on the same craigslist ad and an inflatable boat yesterday within 4 hours of posting. All sold for full asking price.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

You could always offer to buy it back for what you paid

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Nah, I dont need another moped right now. Been putting money into my flareside project.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Yes, dirt bikes have gone up a lot. Especially Yamaha dt125 or 175, Suzuki models in same cc's.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Deals can still be had but you must scour, people post shit in the wrong sections, no pics, thumb over the lens etc.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

I like when they have ten closeup pics of the bike, but not an overall shot. Or pics in a dark garage, leaning up against the Nordic track covered in trashbags.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

or when it's not even the moped, you just see something in the background of another picture - remember steven buzzards snagging the old Toledo tomos chopper just in the background of a car engine on craigslist? haha

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Lol, yeah one blurry pic taken at night of a wheel of some sort of two wheeled vehicle.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

I got an original 70's swing bike that way. Dude has some crap pictures in his garage for some crap bike, with a rusty swing bike in the background. Asked about it, and got it for $25.

Restored it and sold it for $550.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Wow, that's one cool bicycle. I would love to ride one of those.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Those bikes are super cool and a trick to see. My buddy has a pair of them he rides around swap meets, people dont know what it is and he'll swing the front end out and the people will look perplexed lol

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Pretty nice bike, price seems high but it is Texas after all.

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

dang that swingbike rules. We built a few for fun at my old bike co-op, used to race em down the parking deck. super score, I never really realized it was a thing anyone actually sold haha

Re: Should we bury Craigslist?

Funny thing about my swing bike. I had it on Craig's for months. Just kept getting low ball offers.

Then American Pickers found one on their show, and the next day I sold mine for full price, and had calls for weeks, even after I deleted the ad.

Yeah I have seen this trend here also. If American pickers found some rusty ass old sign then any rusty sign is worth hundreds. If it looks like it may have been a sign at one point and has an F that is kinda recognizable then it is worth a few hundred. Rust sells now. I am cashing in on it. I live on the coast so I can say any rusty junk I have was found in a barn on the coast of maine. That is why it is rusty. The actual reason is I found it at the dump and tossed it to the side, let the weeds grow up around it, then I pissed on it for 5 years and then found it again after I weed wacked and was like.....fuck I shoud sell this. Rusty gold.
