Agreed, these bikes can be interesting to the right person. I volunteer with the bike coop when I'm in France visiting family and every now and then one of these kind of Italian gaspipe jobs winds up in the donations. Of note, I've seen Legano & Bianchi versions of the trusty old IGH 3 speeds & coaster-brake populaires - in well kept condition they're rather impressive (to me a least).

Does the Raleigh fork look a little tweaked back?
Not too far from me but too small.

Raleigh fork may be slightly bent (or not). Could be just the camera angle. People, please don't spend 10 pages arguing about this. But if it is bent, it's minor enough that a good bike mechanic could pretty easily bend it back, if need be.

^^^^ Granted, I've read that the frame geometry is a knock-off of some C&V bike, but as a 2008, that's a "new" bike.

My first fixie was an old Lotus with a bent fork. The overlap was terrible, as you can imagine, but I thought it was supposed to be that way and was so proud of myself for learning to ride it--with toe clips on city streets-- without killing myself.

On another topic, I thought this was interesting because it has dual steering. Not sure if that would cause fights or prevent them--cause them would be my guess; and also that those fights could easily end in disaster. (Unless there's some way of choosing one steering station or the other, but if there is I didn't see it in the pictures.)

Ah yes, nothing like a little steering with someone's back directly in your line of sight.

Selling my 2013 Marin 4 Corners bike. It is a beautiful bike. I am selling because I have one too many bicycles at the moment and this one isn't getting ridden like it should. Deore XT components, disc brakes, Brooks saddle, all the goodies. I have always taken care of my bikes, garage kept, freshly tuned up. This is your perfect touring

I tend to agree with Stormy Archer, something seems off about this one. Anybody replying to this, make sure to meet in a busy area, as opposed to some vacant lot or house..

Yeah. Seems sketchy. Especially the Campagnolo thing. Even if the Campy script is somewhere on the frame it would NOT be on the (obvious) down tube, where the non cyclist would look for the name.
