Not much.

His bikes have character and are likely excellent performers for the bucks.
Absolutely. I follow Doc's sales on ebay, and may one day end up with something from him. All very fine builds at very honest prices.

Just as a data point, if you could find one of those Cinelli frames to buy, the asking price range would be about double the numbers mentioned above.

I lose money on almost every bike I build, but that's why it's a hobby and not a business.
For the record, I have nothing against the bikes you sell or the prices you ask for them. More power to you- I think what you do is great

Here's another early eighty's Trek 420. Weren't we just talking about these? This one looks to be a few years newer that my '82 - this has the fastback seat stay / binder bolt arraingement.

Tempting! Unfortunately, it has been converted to fixed (I love fixed gear and have nothing against it, but feel that a Cinelli road frame is not the right candidate), but at least it appears to have been done to a very high standard.

I second acoffin's comments. I've found Doc to be nothing but a gentleman of integrity doing the hobby a service.

Anyone know a giraffe needing an old Schwinn? Here's a 71cm frame. I didn't even know they made frames that big.

That is nice, and in my size. But I already have a Vent Noir I, do I need a Vent Noir II? The smoked chrome is cool.

Big time plus one - that Cinelli is a steal in that condition. If I was looking to fill the Cinelli slot, I'd be emailing him.
