I don't know exact model of this bike. But based on my search, I guess its Look Equipe 753. Is it true? And how much it worth?
Someone is selling this with some details:
Shimano gear set..
handle drop down SAKAE..
hub LIMITED EDITION STX..
rim MISRTAL imported fro USA..(special edition)
Thanks in advance. :)
Its not a 753. I see a Columbus decal on the seat tube and the fork. Paint looks like a reproduction to me. My Look had a lot more detail in the striping.
Maybe some of the Look experts will weigh in! Does not smell right to me.
My guess is fake.

Looks different from any Look I have seen. Roadbikereview forum had a Look fanatic...
Thanks for the replies by two of you. Never cross in my mind before that reproduction bikes exist out there.
I suspecting there is something fishy as the seller failed to provide anything relevant namely the model of the bike and manufacturing year.
Some "fake" bikes out there do not start out as scams. Instead, someone repaints their bike, and mimics a famous brand of their choosing. And why not, its their bike. We see a lot of fake Colnagos here for example. Then the bike changes hands a few times, all of a sudden, something thinks they have the real thing, and sell it as such.
In this case, its pretty obvious when the seller claims it is 753 (Reynolds tubing), when you can clearly see Columbus tubing stickers (they could be or are likely fakes as well). Stickers may be real, but you can buy reproduction/NOS stickers just about anywhere.
