Sell your old bike. Help Habitat for Humanity

Do you have an old bike in your garage that you no longer want? Bring it to Champaign Cycle to be included in the 1st Annual Community Used Bike Sale. If the bike sells you receive the sale price minus a 10% consignment fee. If the bike doesn't sell you can either pick it up or you can donate the bike to Habitat for Humanity . If you donate the bike you will receive a receipt for a tax deductible contribution, you will have more room in your garage, and you'll have the satisfaction of helping a local charity. In addition, the profit from the consignment fee will go to Habitat for Humanity. Champaign Cycle will receive no money from the sale.

Do you want to buy a good used bike? Come to Champaign Cycle during the sale for a good used bike. We will inspect all the bikes and they will be in good operating condition. We will have a checklist detailing the condition of the bike hanging from the handlebars. Since the owner, not Champaign Cycle, will be selling the bike there is no warranty from Champaign Cycle. However, we will do our best to honestly represent the condition of the bike and answer questions about the bike. So please stop by during the 2 day sale to inspect the bikes.


Attention used bike owners who want to sell their bike:

1. Your bike must be in safe operating condition to be included in the sale. We will inspect all bikes when you bring them in. The tires must hold air, and brakes and gears must work. If you wash the bike and inflate the tires before bringing it you will have a better chance of selling it. We will fill out a checklist which will be on the bike during the sale listing the condition of major elements of the bike. If the bike needs repair to be in safe operating condition you can repair the bike or we will repair the bike for you at our normal repair rates. If the bike sells we will deduct the repair cost from your sale price. If your bike does not sell and you donate it to Habitat we will remove the labor portion of your repair bill, which will be a further donation to Habitat from Champaign Cycle. For the sale to be a success for both the seller and the buyer we must present the bikes in good condition.

We will respectfully decline any bikes for the sale which are not in safe operating condition.

2. You will set the price you want to receive for your bicycle. We will give you our opinion on what is a reasonable price for your bike but it's your bike and you set the price. We will suggest prices which are fair for both you and the buyer and which will make it likely that the bike will sell.

3. We will accept used bikes for the sale Wed. April 14 through Wed. April 21
during normal business hours.

4. Please email us if you want to sell your bike at the Community Used Bike Sale. Since this is a new idea for us it would be a great help if you would email us before you bring in your bike so that we can plan better for this event. We will reply to you to confirm and will inform you of any changes or additional information.
