Default Nice Effort, Moron

I'm not normally inclined to take notice of ridiculous Craigslist ads, but this one got my attention.

It seems like the perfect trifecta of bad ads:

- Mid-2000's "TV Chopper Show Boom Era" bike, complete with tart's handbag paint job and way kewl billet wheels? - Check!
- Ridiculously overpriced? - Check!
- Can't even be bothered to pull the trash can out of the way before you take the pic? - Check!

Somebody will buy it and the first mile he puts on it will be Sturgis '19.

Ugly as heck.. maybe instead of behind the garbage can, cut it up and put it IN the garbage can.

Wow, can't look at that and not hear the TV announcer voice.

"Sparks fly and tempers flare as Paul Jr. battles to create a $150,000 Race Car theme bike in just ten days."

And it ends up on Craigslist behind a trash can.

For a cheap price I would buy it and paint it before taking into my garage. But not his price!
