Pinarello or Divorce?

I thought I was at least temporarily bike lusted out, till I see this frameset on eBay:

Abomination! Foul Tempter! For the cost of refinishing my Cadore from the same era I could have this minty Montello. Would my wife be the wiser? A rolling pin to the ear would be too kind for me. Buy it, sell the Cadore... buy my wife something nice with the leftovers? Too late for that maybe, her threshold for all things velo has worn thin. The Delta brakes were the straw that broke the camels back methinks. But the geometry is right for me, the details speak to me... I am not made of stone! Pinarello? Divorce? Both!?!? Man was not meant to make these kinds of decisions. I'll just hope it goes for way out of my financial reach.

You must be tall. That is a pretty big ride.

I'm going to wait until the last second and then nail it. You shouldn't have turned me on to that beauty. Just Kidding. Too big for me.

Great looking ride though.

Reminds me of a classic Basso Gap that I had. With the engraving around the dropouts and such.

Lol, if I could afford a Prince I could afford a new wife who enjoyed bikes like I do or at least could fake it

A friend of mine once had a similar dilemma. His wife stated,"It's the bike or me"!
His solution was to get a better bike.
Women come and go.
Italian bikes are forever.

Don't get that divorce yet,
wait for a mid 60's Pogliaghi then
its a real dilema, no?
Nice Pinarello but I'd wait for something a bit
older. . .
