Ever since shows like American Pickers (or whatever it's called) came out, people think garbage is gold!
It wasn't too long ago that you could buy old bikes that were running for less than $1 per cc, but not anymore. Now everything is "classic," "vintage," and "rare."
And, WTF is the deal with all the "no title, but would be easy to get" ads? If it's that easy, get the damn title for it!
