A 100 bicycles?

Every once in a while I check Craiglist/Chicago for 1). my stolen bicycle, it must be out there somewhere unless it has been ground up and turned into paperclips 2). a "matching" Motobecane to my husband's bike (ca. 1975), but a small to extra small.  They're just both mental exercises.  But yesterday, when I typed in Motobecane, I got a listing, not for a Motobecane, but someone who has over a hundred bikes.  No name, no company address or name, contact by telephone.  What's going on?See More
