Blemished Platypus Complete Bikes
These completes have large paint chips, scuffs, and/or scratches. All the bikes are structurally sound and A-OKAY to ride. We haven't taken individual photos of each, but included some example photos. We're offering discounts -- $100 to $300 off -- if you're okay with the cosmetic blemishes. Either ride 'em as they are or have fun with some nail polish.
We have a few 55cm completes in Riv Purple and a 60cm complete in Sergio Green.

These are for complete Platypus bikes, preassembled in Taiwan. They're coming with:
$25 from each sale will go to the Australian Platypus Conservancy.
We have framesets for sale too (or at least we do at the time of this writing) but these completes are easily a better value. An Antonio's pick Platty, for instance, costs a little under $3,700, and for that price you could get a preassembled-in-Taiwan $2,500 complete, have Rich build up a fancy, supplementary wheelset and still have money left over for bags and racks.
That's the magic of buying parts straight from the source instead of through distributors. The completes aren't as meticulously assembled as Mark, James, or Antonio would do it, but they're a good enough deal that paying to have a bike shop or a competent mechanic friend bring it over the finish line is easily worth it.
Can I add racks and fenders?
Yes but we won't be able to install them unless you're local and picking the bike up here, and there'll be a labor charge ($35 and $100, respectively) for each. Not having to take each bike out of the box and then re-box it is part of the lower price.
No kickstand. Add a Pletscher from our site if you'd like one.
