What a wonderful, beautiful thing! I think it belongs in a museum, but maybe they have a bunch of these over there...? This is the kind of bicycle I try to replicate with some of my builds. Not necessarily the same hardware, but certainly the same design ethic. If I were to buy it, I would hang it from the wall in my shop for inspiration. Thanks for posting this, crank_addict!

When I saw this I thought immediately of the aesthetic presented by most of your bikes. This one is so cool, and the price seems low compared to other "constructeur" bikes, particularly that $6000 opening-bid Dujardin camping bike. I personally like the details of this one better

Beautiful bike. Perfect for the next gravel ride with those 650b wheels? Or maybe be the cool kid a the Dairyland Dare with the oldest bike to show up at the starting line? This sounds like something iab might do but it's not Italian so there's that.

Nice time capsule-ish Bridgestone XO-5 for $40

Probably already gone, nothing more underrated than a nice, comfy early 90s steel hybrid.

^^^^ The Blackburns and panniers make this a pretty good deal. Nice build with the barcons and aeros, exactly what someone would do with an '83 sport tourer in, say, '87.

Someone had a 1993 55cm XO-4 brand new in box here in ATL for $300 and it's still listed over here.

On a totally different subject, in 2 hours, it looks like this Follis on-base at Dover in DE will go for $65 if someone actually bids: https://www.ebay.com/itm/143530659598?ul_noapp=true

Granted, this would only be a good deal if local pickup were an option. @crank_addict has one he's working on over here, it's quite similar (I think his may be a 172, though, his is definitely a bit better)

$65 local sale, yeah that would be a fun bike to turn into a town bike. The seller gets points for figuring out the model.

Note the kickstand clamp damage to the chainstays. May be a turnoff for some folks.

I wouldn't touch this with a 10-foot pole, but do any of you think this is worth the asking price? Why?

The market dictates the price, and this could be for a very small market. Like these guys.
You'd have to be a collector to pay that, but is the bike in collectible quality shape?
Put simply, a person looking for a cheap used carbon mountain bike will not pay that price, which gets you a respectable lighter new bike, all in.

Vintage MTBs are getting more popular but $2000 is a bit much for even vintage road bikes which aren't like pristine pre-Columbus-family Cinellis or something.
