I have revised the seat tube measurement. Should have been 59cm. Also in remeasuring I found a small ding on the right side of the top tube. It is about 3mm long, very shallow. I have taking $50 off the selling price for this flaw. See the right side images on the Flickr site to see how it looks full view, also see attached images for this finding.

These are very nice frames, well worth the asking price,. For those of you who remember bigbossman, he loved his. He had some high-zoot bikes (De Roso, Basso-era Pogliaghi, Dancelli, and others I can't recall) and the Palo Alto was the one by which all others were judged. His was built by Biemmezeta - I assume this one is too. (If so, it should have "BMZ" stamped on the underside of the bottom bracket shell.)

Were it my size, I would be hard pressed to pass it up, and I am not looking to add to my fleet. So consider this a bump to (hopefully) get the right buyer's attention.

Is this recessed or nutted brakes? What are the BB and headset threads?

Bump for a price decrease. Remember, this is shipped CONUS.
