Looking to start a bike shop specializing in low priced two-wheeled steeds? Then we have a golden opportunity for you.
In what has to be one of the more odd posts we’ve stumbled across, a seller on the Indianapolis page of the popular e-commerce site Craig’s List is trying to move 4,000 bikes. Asking price $20,000 — or $5 per bike.
“You will never see another posting like this on Craigslist!,” boasts the seller named Matt in his listing. “If you want to start a bike shop, have a bike shop, or just love bikes a little too much this is the opportunity for you!”
The make of bikes range from Trek and Schwinn to vintage stuff to your typical department store bikes, adds the seller. “There are lots of kids bikes and a good amount of adult bikes, too.”
As good as the add is, the accompanying photos are even better. It what looks to be a rural backyard setting, thousands of bikes are haphazardly stacked on top of each other like firewood. Another photo appears to be kids bikes only, hundreds and hundreds of kids bikes.
How anyone could ever accumulate such a vast collection of bikes is beyond us. But if you’re interested, the seller is located in Wisconsin and can help arrange transport anywhere in the U.S. Happy shopping. And as always, buyer beware.
