Cinelli #1 Steel Track/Pista Stem 9mm Length. No logo but excellent chrome.

I know the seller vaguely. I'm sure the starting price is not a misprint, and doubt he's priced it incorrectly. But wow...

CAD->USD makes it a really tempting buy, but don't have the cash on hand for it. Seems like a grail bike for someone.
That's awesome. Hopefully someone buys it who will really ride it and appreciate it's very high quality attributes, and not just display it somewhere. At least that's what I'd do.

Probably no logo because it's been rechromed, look how chewed the bolt is. The original chrome was thing and the stampings were often uneven and very shallow. I have a bar and stem combo and the logos are very shallow. It's possible this one didn't get stamped, but the chrome is so lustrous I don't think it's original.

Edit: I wrote the above before I looked at the listing and yeah the re-chroming is blatantly obvious looking at the bits and scratches how they are all covered. Either they are trying to pull one over or clueless. However, the asking price is reasonable given the reality that it was a really poor condition stem that has been replated.

I'm sorry, I think its pretty, and I'm sure its a nice ride. But even with the low Canadian dollar, it still seems too much.

Bertrand is a bike shop. Perhaps they made frames at one point, but currently they buy Marinoni frames.

But this bike is priced (minimum bid $2599 Canadian /$1800 US) much higher than a similar Marinoni which is a much more prestigious brand in my opinion.

Gotta wonder why they put a fork blade decal on the downtube, though…

Rattle-can paintjob on the frame, but it's got a nice mix of components.

Almost don't want to post this, I'm tempted to get it. This seller doesn't know what he has, he thinks it's an '85 Olympic edition but that was a lower end bike. This is an '86 531C that was sold as a frameset only. Looks built up with 7 speed 105. $325.

I'm not sure of the model but it looks a lot newer than 1972; more like 1982.

Probably a P10: Carbolite tubing (gaspipe a la francaise). Like most Peugs a nice riding bike but not $500-worth. More like half that.

I would take this if it were local and $600.

Our own Bibliobob just picked up another handsome Medici at a more attractive pricepoint. If his were two cm smaller, I would have chased it as well.

These are super nice riders for the $$$$.
