Midwest Craigslist Finds Indicating Lunacy

It seems everyone else is doing these things and we're (as usual, us midwestern backwater bumpkins) behind the curve, so I'll start her off.

Not mine, but you can't go wrong for $125.

Midwest Craigslist Finds Indicating Lunacy (FIL)

I shall start a new thread.

I propose it be populated by posts culled from craigslist, apparently authored by persons who advertise (or attempt to advertise) their motorsickles for sale in an attempt to lure purchasers for said motorsickles.

The finds warranting placement in this thread shall be typified by a fundamental misunderstanding on the part of the ad's poster (OP) as to the value, condition, or other unique feature(s) of the motorsickle.

I propose the following shall commence this experiment:

http://desmoines.craigslist.org/mcy/928399263.html

Quote:
1970 Honda CB 350 Motorcycle Great shape - $1000 (Adair, IA)
Has not run in 25 years but has been garaged for the entire time. Good luck finding a motorcycle this old in such great shape. Good tires, low miles, good muffler. It was put away running but has not been running since. call Greg 641-740-0322. Best offer.



I propose to add the following to the poster's description.

Tires = shot.
Hoses = shot.
All moving parts in engine = enmired in unimaginable amounts of GAKTM.
GAK = substance of a chemically indeterminate composition.

I laugh heartily at this fellow's post. It does not, however, warrant inclusion into the "Best of Craigslist" category.

Further, my GF is getting tired of me pointing out these silly posts to her because, well, she's not as interested in motorsickles as I. This is why I propose this thread.

Thanks to the mods for fixing the title of my thread.
