Thumbs up The Craigslist Thread

I have been thinking we need a CL Thread in the for sale section where we could post interesting ads, great buys, funny ads, "are they really serious ads", etc, and help others find what they are looking for if needed.


I admit I cruise through CL far too often. Yes, I stay out of the "looking for..." sections. I am guessing there are others that do this as well. It would be fun to discuss(post) and learn from others about bikes and any issues on certain models/yrs, dealing with people, and all the fun stuff that comes from bargain hunting and window shopping on the net.

Any thoughts from the TWT gang?

admins-If there is a problem with doing this, this thread can die in peace.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

Craigshelper has now become searchtempest. It is a good tool for searching multiple cities at once using keywords. It's simple and works well when looking for specific items.

You can also search results by Googling "search craigslist"
It will bring up pages of results but the 1st one will be "craigslist.org" with a small search box & button underneath.Just type in what you're lookin for & pages of results will be displayed.Not necessarily in order of distance like Tempest though.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

LOL, yeah, at 90,000 miles you could stand a change in bikes.
This brings me to the next tool you'll need for CL hunting.

NADA for used bikes

I am thinking you will also need a capture program for those CL post that will get yanked before the rest of us can laugh at them.

Screenhunter is the one I use.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

I would admit to doing a bit of browsing in Craigslist. I love looking over the bikes for sale. I also like entertaining myself with Missed Connections. I actually found someone I knew in there as a recipient of a MC. I've even looked at the job postings, alot more this past week. I have found and sold a couple items there also.

Might well be a joke, but, OTOH, maybe it's for real - I can certainly understand why someone WOULDN'T want that bike anymore.

Couple of other things that came to mind on that one - he took the van down off the blocks to shoot those pics. And whoever wrote that is pretty literate, a novelty in and of itself in these troubled times, when the TAKS test trumps actually learning anything in schools.
