    well....from an email.

    "It's a real deal. I got the scoop from the buyer, who seems like a nice
    guy.

    Basically, he's been hunting for a De Rosa track bike in his size for 3
    years now and have yet to find one (I believe him, because I've been
    doing
    the same thing!). Apparently he stumbled across the auction's bike on a
    website somewhere and proceeded to make an offer to the owner that
    couldn't
    be refused (that's also the way I've bought some of my bikes). The
    bike's
    owner apparently "legitimized" the offer to buy by posting said bike on
    eBay
    for the buyer to bid on... so that's why it sold real fast after it got
    listed.

    Anyways, the new owner is happy as can be since he also has a
    sentimental
    reason for the purchase. He raced a similar De Rosa in the 80's.
    Memories
    are worth some monies, eh?

    So there you have it. Maybe this should be added to the price guide.
    <grin>"

    You would think for $5000 the new Trek Madones would have color options.

    The problem is that eBay sellers will now try to use that auction as backup for their outrageous prices. As if eBay bike prices weren't high enough already!
