Still a better deal than the 12K Ritchey sport-touring frame but I think there's some extra 0's going on.
25K would be a stretch but a hair more realistic, maybe?
Too bad it's not in Lire.
I wonder who in Ohio owns the bike.
The search for inner peace continues...
I would buy it if the top tube wasn't dented.
The Pope gave that thing up after the 4th time is robe got caught in the chainweel.
Redxj posted this a few hours earlier in the eBay Finds thread. He also says that this is the bike that was supposed to go to JPII, until someone at the factory dented the top tube!
For that price, it better have been presented to the Pope by Jesus.
Well, I'm sure that God would want somebody to spend a 1/4 of a million $ on a holy racing machine....
I hope that this trend of nice, maybe even gorgeous bikes being listed by numbskull sellers will end soon..Or is this what we can look forward to for the '08 season??

It's hard for me to swallow that Colnago would be OK with having any show bike with dents.
The bike is my old coach's. He got a number of years back for what I'm guessing is a pretty good deal of money. It's been in his office for at least 10 years. The money will go to the Cleveland Velodrome Project.
Check the seller location and my location. The pictures were taken where I work.
And yes, it's real, the thing is gorgeous. I've got pics on my cell, too.
In that case they should make that known and be selling it as a "charity auction". Or have a raffle for it. $5 dollar raffle tickets worldwide might bring in some serious coin.
That sounds like a good cause and correctly marketed for that this bike might bring in some money for it. But as it is being represented I don't think anyone would touch it. If you know the owner I would suggest rethinking this before it just turns into a joke.
I'm a bit short this week, and regret that I will have to make do with a chrome Paramount.
Maybe next week, who knows???
1971 Paramount P-13 Chrome
1973 Paramount P-15 Opaque Blue
1973 Gitane Tour De France
1974 Raleigh Professional
1991 Waterford Paramount
This is my favorite part:
WARNING: THIS BIKE IS EQUIPPED WITH TUBULAR (SEW-UP) TYPE TIRES WHICH MUST BE GLUED TO THE RIMS, BY THE PURCHSER TO BE SAFELY RIDDEN. RIDDEN, HAHAHA
