another amazing E-bay auction

Check THIS out
Another of those e-bay sellers that just doesn't know what they've got.

I'm thinking there is a couple of misplaced decimal points.

I think the seller added one zero too many........ Seller has only two praises....dating back 3 years ago. No recent tranaction. This one really stinks...

you know for a 53 inch frame, $50 shipping and handling is a great deal, since you are looking at a box that is over 4 feet tall just for the frame

I e-mailed him this :

"Can you provide some more information? A model number, pictures, components, etc? Obviously, it's not 53 inches. 53cm, maybe? I'm not about to bid $14, much less $1,400, on a bike with absolutely no information...

Thanks"

Considering the number of new 9speed STI bikes you can buy for $1400, this must be one incredible frame.

Yes, but I don't think the seller realises it.
