I just want to say that I love this thread. Am I the only one that notices a correlation between the grammar/spelling in the posts and the quality of the bikes?
And I didn't know that the first cafe racer had saddle bags a trunk and a fuck all sailboat fairing... interesting.

Not the first at all!  I have just stopped being astounded by the ignorance and utter stupidity of the general masses...

Now that just takes the fun out of life.  You have to be surprised by the lack of intelligence.  It's either that or cry about it, and my tears are being saved up for when Bono dies.

Hold on... I just may win this thread. Hell, I might just win the internet with this jewel.

http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/3061516459.html

1. "Ran when parked"
2. "Needs work to be road worthy." - No way. Really?
3. I'm speechless. Why? And to think I could own this beauty for only $700. I don't know that I could fit it in my garage though.
4. Did he need that ramp to get it up the 6" step-up to the front porch?
