I live for the CABE
Went to a 2 day church sale last month. Got there at opening along with about 200 other people. I peel off to the non women part where there were about 20 bikes. Incredibly this was the only Schwinn. It was overpriced (it is a Schwinn you know!) and I took a quick look to see it was a Jan 81 bike and moved on. Day 2 was supposed to be half off. I wasn’t going back but my wife and mom wanted to go so I went. This was the only bike left. I’m sure because of the price (it is a Schwinn you know). It was looking at me with such sad eyes and I thought even at half off don’t really want it. I hear the church lady tell someone “that’s not part of the half off” So ok I don’t feel bad except for the way it was looking at me. I walk by and the lady says “you want to make an offer” I say I don’t think so but she presses and I say a price 75% lower than they are asking figuring they would pass on the offer.. “SOLD” she says. I load it up and the bike was all happy! The only new bike I myself ever bought at a Schwinn store was this ones Sport version brother. I did not realize the Tourist was a two year only model.
