Getting rid of grandpa's estate, this young guy was selling 4 bikes on craigslist that have been sitting in an attic for years!!! This '59 Schwinn was in the mix so I popped! Here it is now. It is one more bike on the road with new rubber and 52 prior years of existence and many more down the road. :wink:

Total investment: $23.15

Thanks everyone. I can't believe a few people actually voted for it in the poll. I made some money off of it though; I sold it to an awesome guy for $100. That's $76.85 profit toward college! :lol:
