Motobecanes, grand record?

Hey what do you guys think of this? Is it a fair price for this bike?
It has a 531 frame which I read was good material, and the same for dura ace as well. Thanks a lot!

Paint is pretty mediocre (check the picture of the fork). I would pass.

Thanks, I passed on it. You were right, that paint didn't look too hot wrk101.
Going with the Motobecane theme, what about this one?

I searched here and it seems odd with the shimano and 1020 tubing. Thanks for your help! You guys are great.

That Grand Record has mojo, even with the poor paint. Heck, even because of the bad paint - just the kind of bike I like to find: rides and functions great and nobody wants to steal it. But maybe not for 4 bills.
