Found the specs: tubing is Tange Infinity, Not Prestige (I could only see the edge of the sticker in the picture) rims should be Araya RM-20 - so nothing exciting, probably fair deal at $150

The PDG Waterford Paramount is a real oddity. Serial number indicates a Panasonic build, but the style & fittings are definitely a Waterford build. Lots of weird stuff went on during that time.
The PDG Series 3 looks good good. Price may be a bit high for a local pickup only.
Cheers,
Van

Yikes, they mention "previous accident" & "front rim was damaged too but can be straightened", I posted this one as I was walking out the door, apparently I did not look very closely (or read the description!).

I suspect the seller thinks it will sell to someone. But the frame damage is gonna break the bank, need re-painting, and new decals. Resulting in about $800 to repair it. That means a $1500 bike when finished and it will still be a used bike. Seller did not respond to me after enquiring about the item and price. Today it was re-listed and ran the same ad copy. This is one to keep clear of. Even harvesting the few bits of Campy it would be some overpriced parts stash. Smiles, MH

Question is, is it worth it? It looks badly straightened.
