    1981 Avatar 2000 recumbent on ebay

    Hi All,
    I'm selling a prized Avatar 2000 recumbent on Ebay! Check it out.
    go to ebay, search Avatar 2000 or Item # 330102878113

    The Avatar 2000 is the grandfather of the modern recumbent, designed by MIT professor David Gordon Wilson in ~1979 and produced by FOMAC (Wilmington, MA). Only 140 were made in 1981-82. This one is serial number 0063, purchased new in 1981 for $2127 (over $5000 in 2007 dollars). The bicycle is in absolutely perfect, museum condition, with less than 10 miles on it. No scratches or wear. There are three very small rust spots where the cables/steering rod has rested against the frame in storage, and I have had a professional leather shop reinforce and the seat straps that were slightly cracked, but this bicycle is most likely the best condition Avatar 2000 in existence, as suggested to me by Prof. Wilson himself! This bicycle is truly a gem of bicycling history.
