BOBCFL: Ernie Clements

OK.  so you'll be all like 'Dude look at how much worse for wear the paint is'
i'll be all like 'Dude! Both are riders. Once the paints flawed in a couple spots, to a collector, it needs a respray.  Medici guy priced his bike in what many would consider collector's territory.  To turn either one of these bikes, the medici or the clements, they'd need a respray

Less than $325 in price (asking $490), around 1/3, and MUCH cooler pedals if you ask me.  Both in cali.  The cost of cleaning up medici's rusty fork (urban dictionary that one) would be the same as replacing the Clement's RD, And the stem and seatpost of the Clement's just needs a little elbow grease, prolly'll show ya how it's done.  And the rims on this Clements are pretty f'ing sweet.

But I digress
