    Abstract 10-speed painting...

    ...I'd need to flip a few more bikes to afford it, though!

    The painter is a bit off I would say. I would not want it in my house.

    YES. that's exactly my thought. Besides (not to harm the feelings of the artist) it's brutally ugly.
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    +1 for showing drive side
    -1 for no white garage door

    So I guess I'm calling it a zero.

    You probably would get it. Many of the past sales went in the $50-100 range. It looks like the $1,000,000 listing idea is being used to just get an offer.

    I actually kind of like it...I gravitate towards shapes and lines with my artistic preferences and this is interesting.

    ART: in the eye of the beholder. Or so they say.

    In this age of government-financed "art" the beholder often is the one left holding the bag...

    I actually would love to pick up a couple of good bike art pieces, but this painting is a bit too much for me (both financially and taste).

    I really like the older French posters; they have such charm and they scream fun.

    Back in the day, the "Bike Barb" an alias of one of the Competitive Cycling editorial staff, had an Eisentraut "A" bike in a goofy flesh shade, but the cool part was the barbed wire painting that wrapped lazily around the tubes.

    I checked out this artist's other prints on eBay, and he actually has some work that I wouldn't mind having on my wall, though none of the bike-themed stuff grabbed me. The abstract Mr. Spock amuses me

    Welcome to Foo from C&V.

    Any Foosters got a spare $1,000,000 burning a hole in their pocket?

    The shipping seems cheap for such a valuable item.
