This is a very rare Bike E tandem bicycle. These bikes sold new for $2400, here is your chance to save big $$$$$. This bike has brand new tires, new inner tubes with liners to protect from punctures, new brake pads,freshly tuned. It needs the rear shock to be repaired, sometimes loses air, its a $25 fix, and the front light needs a battery pack. Still functions with out it, just with a rigid ride. To make it even more rare it has a gas motor power assist with thumb throttle that can bring you up to 25 mph, retails for $899. It is very quiet and great for those long trips. No more worries about charging the battery for the electric assist motors. The bike is being sold as is and i have the right to end the auction early at anytime, due to being for sale locally. I bought this for me and my epileptic son, but don't feel comfortable with him behind me so i bought a rhoades car instead.
That sure looks like a Weedeater engine to me!
Eeeekkk! Looks like another bent fork! Could just be the way the pics were taken, but it certainly doesn't look right.
Not just the fork, the frame's roached, too.

I definitely mean that guy. And those guys too. It is crazy how much effort they put into violating the craig's list rules about posting (miscategorized and spam/overpost rules) and yes it is annoying. Elgin guy has been known to post his identical ad multiple times a day. In truth, the place for those ads to go is in skilled trade services offered. Of course he's there too. Repeatedly.
