My buddy sent me a link to an auction with the rare Exertainment Bike with Mountain Bike Rally/Speed Racer. At the very last second I sent a bid of $1,011.11 and that's exactly what I won it for. I was shocked. I never thought I'd win it for that price. I didn't even get my wife's permission before bidding!

I stayed up the whole night trying to think of a way to convince her to actually let me buy the thing. At the end I just told her the truth. And begged. A lot. After a few intense minutes she graciously agreed.

Next I had to convince my awesome brother to give up a whole Saturday and drive me 4 hours away to pick it. Thank god gas prices are so low right now!

We pulled up to the guy's house at around 11 am and got the story behind this bike. He told us that he had just won it a week earlier in a government auction for $400. Apparently this thing has been sitting for years in the break room of the Portland, Oregon post office. 

We loaded it up, drove 4 hours home, and lovingly placed it in my too-small basement game room. 

And now some pics!





My very patient and understanding wife!

That thing looks sweet! Nice pickup!

($1k is a steal since that's what the cart alone goes for)

Never even heard of this thing. Amazed that Life Fitness partnered up with Nintendo to make this thing. When I first saw this I thought that you could have gotten this way cheaper at an auction or hit up a gym that was looking to ditch old equipment.

I'm the saltiest of salt shakers right now...

I was actively watching this auction until the very end and cried when I was outbid at the last second.
My parents were there and I kept on trying to tell myself "I'll find another..."
Ah well, at least it went to someone good.

This thread is just a subtle way for attakid to show off his wife

Congrats though, on both scores.

Or was the breast-accentuating top a coincidence?

Congratulations on that score though! That is a heck of a price! I bet a lot of people stayed away from this one because of the weight/size issue of the bike, which is usually the drawback for one of these monstrosities, but now you have what I like to think as the best and most awkward SNES peripheral ever!
