Craig's List Ad of the Day - Wouldn't You Like To Be a Pepper Too?

While perusing Craig's List this evening I came across this awesome collectable "special edition" Dr. Pepper theme bike. I'm not sure if it's the theme that makes the bike so special or that it appears to have been as assembled by this guy.

I am however really curious as to why the owner would want to sell such a collectable item. I wonder if it could be that the bike is so unstable that it is near impossible to ride with the fork on backwards. Or perhaps it could be that every time he/she would attempt to make a turn the front tire would rub on their forward foot.

People, People, People. Support you local bike shops.

ROFLMAO! "Special" indeed.

What is the deal with all the backwards forks?! Anyone who takes ten seconds to look at the bike realizes something is terribly wrong (must less actually ride it!)

The fork could easily be turned around... How much is a bike like that worth?

Curious, As with anything of value. It is only worth what the market is willing to pay.

Luckily the Dr. Pepper has just been resisted at reduced price.

price is down to $200 OBO
I have half a mind to tell them that the bike is assembled wrong!
