1992 O'Brien--Columbus SL

This bike is unfortunately too small for me, so I will be selling it locally on the Seattle CL. O'Brien is a local custom frame builder. The combination of a nice frame with so-so components means I'm not sure on value...
-Fully overhauled and tuned with new tires, hoods, etc.
Specs:
Frame-- 52cm ST, 52cm TT. Columbus SL with Cinelli Cast lugs, Gipiemme dropouts. This info was confirmed by the builder.
Complete 105SC Group with Matrix ISO C-II rims. Sakae FX stem and Sakae-Modolo bars.
Very nice condition, with what looks to be very low miles.

Also included are a set of SPD pedals and shoes, both are from the same period as the bike.

I reaaly like the look of the bike except for the uggle saddle. The lug work is just great very well done with some nice interesting detail. That said I'm not wild about the components or wheelset they seem a bit beneath this nice frame. Say $500 considering market with most of the value in the frame.
