Turns out it has a realtively rare $75, white, Concor Profile seat and ultra super rare Cinelli LA 84 handlebars.
Interesting! I guess that shows that each market is different. Odd people would take the time to go look at a bike, knowing the brand, model, components, etc., and then not buy it.... Strange. Glad I haven't gotten lookers around here, yet...... I tend to get no shows, people that say that they will be right over (and then never show). But those that show, go home with a new (used) bike.
