Gorgeous. Looks pristine. Bring a tape measure and measure the effective horizontal top tube; for a reasonable fit, the measurement should be within about 1 cm of your preferred top tube length.

Yard sale: I'd just ask how much they want for it. For all you know it's an ex-husband's bike with a get-it-out-of-my-sight two-figure price. Otherwise, I'd pay about $500 maximum. COVID pricing shouldn't apply for something so esoteric.

Post another picture after you buy it.

Agreed....If it was at a flea market and no other bikes at the seller's table, you are right to suggest asking "How much do you want for it".....might be very reasonably/inexpensively priced....I would have like to know even if I didn't want a L.P.
If cheap enough, nice wall art.
Best, Ben

Ya know, I agree 100%. There is a (small) desire to own one TT bike. I would have to take a tape to see if it is even close to big enough. With the adjustable stem moved slightly, it might work.

As to wall art, I just partially disassembled 3 for the attic and 3 more I likely wouldn't ride through the coming wet weather months. (Simplified/resolved several issues)

I need to go back just to get better pics.

I'm thinking $500 may be a bit high no matter what. I haven't been able to ride my old Prologue TT since a wreck and seperated shoulder. It's been listed locally for over a year and I still have it. Brand new build with mainly all new 10 speed Shimano parts, they are just a weird sell I guess. I'll keep mine listed a little longer but when I have time this winter I'm tearing it down for parts and hanging the frame on the wall in the bike cave. I think these just take a very special buyer and not too many people want them. Most peopel see it and think it's going to kill their back or something. Reality is that it's not that different from my road bikes in terms of reach and saddle to bar drop. It just looks extreme.

Thinking around $300 max if you wanted it for yourself. Not a lot of value as a part-out.
