Death-mobile? It has those cool fender-mounted turn signal reminders; that makes it safer than any other car on the road at the time.

Ahh, I almost missed it. It has a Cinelli stem and bars, and thus is a Cinelli bike!!!



Interesting bike. But, I think it may have a mild Top tube/downtube bend, and may also have a bent fork.
$100 bike as is?

My advice to you is to start drinking, heavily.

Yeah, I'd forgotten about that car/reference. My post was more of a joke about those little lights the '70s Chryslers used to sport. Another "innovation" that never caught on.

Of course it's titanium. That's why it's tied up like a dog. Titanium "racer" like that could bolt and run away on its own in an instant.

This is just waaay too funny. A rare Tour de France bike. Yeah, right!

https://kpr.craigslist.org/bik/d/ric...131517088.html

"This is a one of a kind 1948 CMC (Cleveland Motor Company) bicycle. CMC is wildly known as a motorcycle builder many years ago. This was designed for the Tour De France bike race’s in the 40’s. 99.9% original. The only thing not original are the tires. You will not find another one like it anywhere except for a museum in Canada. I spoke with the curator from the museum and he told me that this bike is the first one he has known of, or seen period. Very Rare. I have been offered $150 just for the handlebars! The Brooks Leather seat is also original and valued highly. Trade For Gibson Guitars, Fender Guitars and or guitar amps. Possible trade for something other then instruments. What do you have? Own a very rare piece of racing bike history. The bike rides great! "

That car is already full of about 20 miles of bad road.

I suspect they really do want to peddle it, for some gas money, some more tats, and to finance another run to Mickey D's.
