Wait a minute, you're right --- a Sharpie special. Maybe just filled in/accentuated the existing decals?

I was going to post something about the similar frame pieces and then noticed that everything had been painted white. You don't think someone is reselling a ghost bike do you?

Way WAY overpriced, but ....GRANT PETERSEN!!
And this is a particularly "Rivendell-esque" build with those hideous bars, ridiculous stem and "beausage".

Beauty bike. Size 56, this is the flagship touring bike. Package deal with panniers (ortlieb/baggins/sackville) and full-size nitto racks (last image with smaller front rack is an earlier set-up). Loved this bike and is in amazing condition aka, little to no beausage. Tour the continent.

$450; not sure if the sizing. This is a Master Iron Man model which has the Tange 1 tubing and Shimano 600 Ultegra parts. That color combination only came out in 1988.
