Is this it? I called about this one and got a real song and dance. I walked away because I think it's overpriced by about 1/2. Selling price is "..$695".
The seller talks like trader who ran across what appears to be a nice bike but all he knows about it he got off the internet. He tried to sell me on the rarity of the chainrings. I couldn't get a straight answer about anything. The guy just wants to talk AT you, not have a meaningful, informative conversation
My guess is he picked it up cheaply and wants to make his fortune on it. If it sells quickly it will be to someone who is emotional about it. If it doesn't sell in a week I bet he will take a fair offer of $300-400.
There's a 60 cm version of this bike hanging in a LBS that can be had for asking price of $500. Even that's too precious for me.
At these prices they are investments.
If you've laid hands on it and approve of its condition, if it fits you, etc. it may be worth a bit more.
