I think there something about one of these years ago. Maybe even the same bike.

I'm having some serious deja vu here. Wasn't this exact bike, exact thread, exact everything posted on this forums a couple months ago? Searching through criteria I cannot find anything. In the Marketplace description of the bike the owner seems to know exactly what it is. Why not just buy it for $150 and ask the owner questions later?

It’s way too big for me. I was just curious since I’ve never heard of one before.

There was a movie called Zotz in 1964 or thereabouts? It starred Tom Poston, as recall--possibly his only starring role in a move. But I don't think there was any link to the bike we're talking about here.

The only reference to Zotz on Classic Rendezvous is this comment by a John T:

"I remember seeing a high quality tig welded frame called a Zotz at a The Bendix Wood Criterium (finished 3d as a junior, best finish ever!) in 1978 . The builder (Mr Zotz explained to me you could weld steel just fine with a gas atmosphere. I think Zotz were made in Fort Wayne. Of course, Indiana in the 1970s had a very hot racing scene. Zotz frame are still occasionally spotted around I am told though I have no idea how many he made."

The fact that this bike is still listed slightly irks me... Do I really have to be the guy to ask about shipping?

Ow! Nice! 25"? If that were for sale anywhere near me - like within 200 mls near me - I'd be all over it.
