    Glad to hear you've found that wonderful old bicycle a new home.
    Thanks for putting up with all of us old bike freaks, and keeping your good sense of humor throughout the process.
    There's a few of us here, that will be eating some Crow for breakfast this morning. Lol!

    Glad the Aerocycle sold, hopefully to a member here. If not, hopefully it has a deserving home. I will throw out any apology to Val. Sometimes we bicycle geeks get all worked up over a pretty bicycle not just a pretty face. Congrats to both seller and buyer.

    I’m real... I swear :)
    All good. I learned a lot and I’m so happy that this bike will be treasured.
    No hurt feelings. I was kind of a moron trying to figure all of this out. Glad that people can be so passionate about these bikes, which are really works of art. I think that is a beautiful thing. Keep being experts in this arena. It’s great to see such knowledge (and still laugh so hard at some of the comments at the same time)

    Just kidding Val. Thanks for joining and making the bike available to The Cabe. Sorry about the rough welcome, but we've had our share of scammers in the past. Sometimes something too good to be true...is. Glad this worked out for all involved! Mike

    No wonder there are so many single people in this hobby. Congrats to Val and the new owner whoever they might be.

    Glad to see this was real and not a scam, but my grandpa said “don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.”

    So was your friend pleased with the price? And do they have any more interesting old bikes?

    I do have some other bikes I will be posting soon. And some bike seats etc. I think one is a motorcycle seat. Anyway, I need to do some research and go through giant piles of stuff to get to them. So stay tuned over the next few weeks. And FYI, the bike sold for $10k, my original asking price and I got a 20% cut, so I was happy with that

    A woman with big... piles of bike junk is attractive to me. I was wondering the same thing but looks like she's got a ring...
