    is this ciocc san cristobal frame bent?

    I agreed to buy this frame assuming the description was accurate (no serious damage), and asked for a few larger pictures before I make the drive out to pick it up. Looking at these pictures, the top tube and the down tube seem to veer slightly downward at the head tube. Also the fork looks like it might not rake properly, but it's facing at an angle, which makes it harder for me to tell. Am I seeing things? I hope so but looking at the rust under the top lug, it seems hard to escape the fact.

    One of the chainrings is busted, which indicates it was in some sort of mishap (that issue was noted in the ad).

    Classic front end collision damage. I'd pass on it if I were you.

    What's with these bent Ciocc's (and their owners)? I just started a thread the other day about one I was looking at, which was bent behind head tube at top of down tube. Too bad, another pretty frame.

    I had that same bike! Except it had Triomphe.
    And the same front end damage from rear ending a car.

    Not just bent - buckled.
