Craigslist Bike of the Week - 1971 Hercules

Craigslist can be a great place to browse for used bikes. You'll soon find that there are plenty of ill-priced bikes and potential scams out there. When it comes to older bikes (you'll also notice the plentiful use of the word "Vintage") you can find some great deals.

Here's a great example. I can't speak to the authenticity of this bike nor the quality of the seller, but this post seems like a great Bike For The Rest Of Us. Try searching for the term "lugged steel" in your city's Craigslist today!

I had a bike just like that stolen a few weeks ago in NY. A hercules women's bike. It was a great bike.
