This is a very unique Stingray Bike that was produced by the owner of the wrights to Beatles name and Apple Corps for promotional purposes in 1999. This bike was never sold to the public and the details of the bike display gorgeous Yellow Submarine artwork. This is a very limited and unique piece of Beatles memorabilia. There were less than 1000 bikes produced. The total made like this one only 888 bikes. There are no flaws with this beautiful piece. Excellent new condition.

well you get the feel of this thread have fun sharing what you found!
 
Maybe it's selective memory or false nostalgia but it seems to me that a few years ago there were quite a few bikes on Craigslist for $25 or $50. The impetus was generally the need for more room in the garage. Now almost everyone thinks they have a museum piece or at least a bike that Mike from American Pickers would give them top dollar for. And then they keep bumping the ads for months with no price reductions. And then there are the bikes that are still available at Walmart and are priced higher than the store. I don't get it.
 
Sign of the times @AndyA? A disappearing middle class with less disposable income. The price of metal. The cost of shipping, monetary and ecological. It seems natural that people are returning to saving, fixing and re-making things from sturdy parts. Surely you've seen Mad Max? =)
