Well I guess that is why this one is still on CL? 1957 SCHWINN PANTHER Oh yeah, that's right $600 cdn is worth what these days USD? Roughly $486. Such a deal.

I agree that getting the best possible price for anything is the way to go no matter what. But I would rather give either of those guys 6 bills for their old quality Schwinns than whatever they want for one down at the big box. Or even a Felt cruiser actually. But that is personal preference and I am not in the market for anything even remotely like that so now I will stay quiet about it.
