Craig's Thread

These pop up all the time. Why not stick them all in the same place??
- I'm talking about individual threads linking to CL finds.


Maybe some guidelines.
1. Location, location, location.
2. Make, model + price.
*3* I really would appreciate linking to hysterical CL posts. I don't think anything makes me laugh more than when someone can't spell ["helmut" gets me every time ], or thinks their yamaha xj650 is worth $3500 and tells you why.

nice

I saw an ad the other day where a hispanic gentleman (or so I assumed from some of the phonetic misspelling) claimed that he had a nice running sv650 with an oil lake.....

This could devolve into a more amusing thread about fugly bikes/goofy Craigslist Ads-

Look what some dipstick (or his "professional" painter) has done to a CB750-

Those last two are some of the worst looking bikes I've ever seen. They should be ashamed of themselves

This is going to be my new favorite thread.

I went to duccutters.com and in reference to that bike shown, they said " If THE DEVIL RODE A BIKE, this would be his weapon of choice."

DOUCHE BAG!

We already have such threads in the Central forum, one for serious ads and one for "finds indicating lunacy".

I'd suggest copying and pasting the ad into the message since a link is good for only so long with CL. Anyone reading this thread a month later will find only dead links and will miss the object of the joke. Or whatever...

agreed. But I'm guessing CL will stop hosting the pics once the ad is gone so all we'll see is an 'x'. Time will tell....
