But it didn't sell for $450. It sold for 275 pounds, which isn't quite the same. When I lived in England, we stopped converting dollars to pounds eventually because 1 pound bought you about what 1 dollar bought you here. The exchange rate has nothing to do with what a currency's buying power really feels like. So the person who bought it, if British, may have paid what feels to them like about $275. Consider Raleigh Sports in bad condition go for near that much in my neck o'the woods, that seems reasonable enough for this bike, I guess. It's not a steal, but it's hardly insane, is it?
Or is there something I'm missing about Lentons?
