    Thought you had a wanted ad up?

    Somebody needs to get it before Pete grabs it to build his personal show gilson army.

    I bet it wasn't bringing close enough to what they really wanted or was told it should bring so they just ended it. If it was closer I would jump on it. I'd be happy with 2 of them.

    That was control4userguy

    I had actually considered selling my complete lighted Gilson 2 speed to him, but thought better of it

    Ended again , what's that the 3rd time now... This individual doesn't have time to allow a commercial transporter onsite but always has time to play games on ebay.

    Last try here- Is anyone on this forum interested in picking-up and flipping it? If so, see my WTB https://www.oldminibikes.com/forum/w...-survivor.html

    So, for the price of the theoretical "barn find", one can obtain the mythical GIL 15 (or is it 13?). Just imagine this in your living room, dining room or even suitable for a bedroom. Yep, you got that right, reverse-HS forks, upside down/dangler shocks, custom drivetrain and none of the extraneous crap like chain guards, brake assy., Riversides, remote tank, etc..

    ^Yeah, that's a shame too. I would guess many true time-capsules fall into the hands of pickers (pick-up only condition) or locals with no interest other to run them around their farm. This listing feels valid as I was on their good-side for several emails until I mentioned the dreaded transporter...

    BTW, I'm not seeing the defects you pointed out. Compared to some of the "offers-to-consider" I have received, this one is choice. I'm starting to think that money doesn't talk with these. You either accept them in un-original/pieced-together condition, incomplete condition or don't take them at all.
