Not mine.
https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rds/bik ... 37763.html

This one is over in Retro_Roy's neck o' the woods.

Advertised as a road bike, so it's
    1 - under the radar (not listed as MTB or elevated chainstay)
    2 - lightly used (used as a road bike, not thrashed in anger by a young buck)

Under that dust, it appears that the paint and decals are in really good condition.
This one would be easy to restore and would be a great rider.
Way too tall for me, though. You'd need to be a giraffe to ride it. :lol:

I emailed Roy last night right after I posted this.
I hope he doesn't mind me mentioning that he lives close to seller.
My advice would be whoever wants it to PM Roy directly.

If you can't reach Roy, you might be able to convince seller to sell internationally. I've done it many times with Craigslist sellers, especially when I send them a link to the RB page where I outed their listing. I usually also point out my username and feedback on RB, as well as that on eBay. Many times sellers are surprised that there is a big overseas market and, if I may say so, a cult following for e-stays (even if I'm the only one in the cult :oops: ).
