Craigslisted Part 2: The Discounting

I see that a few of you out there reading have taken heed of my recent “vintage” bike pricing rant, and although the average mean asking price of so-called “vintage” bikes on the mighty CL hasn’t dropped for the general public, one seller of bikes has decided to add a special discount to those named Sam. Interesting.

Up for sale is a nice, vintage, Schwinn World (10 speed) road bike. I have owned this bike for 5-6 years now, and have always enjoyed riding it! I hate to see it go, but have one too many bikes currently. It has a lugged frame and seems like a very well built bike for it’s day. I am asking $150 (OBO), unless your name is Sam, then the price is only $120 – Thanks for looking! Call Luke before it’s gone! Phone calls only please!

I like that some headway is being made in bike pricing, even if it is only for people whom happen to share my first name.  It looks like a nice bike, but it looks a little short for me, Luke!  Thank you for offering a lower price to grouchy CL surfers like me.
