The original fork would almost certainly have had the Pinarello pantograph on the crown.

Damn! Deal of the week for me. I've been looking for one of these in my size for a while.

Coincidently I was just in Belgium, of course couldn't resist looking at the local bike market. I found quite a few nice older road bikes for very little money. $200-$300 could get you a nice 80's or 90's steel racing machine like Koga-Miyata, Bianchi, Gazelle, etc. But a Merckx would set you back a $1,000 or more. Belgian's like their famous son.

Tx and agreed.

I reached out to the seller, the ask is for frame only so like I thought and said, price is very optimistic IMO and I wish him luck.

It would be a good deal if the fork and wheels were included, that was my main point all along as they are not.

Most of us know these FC's have a very serious following and I'm not surprised about the ask at all, he may get it but I wouldn't pay that much no matter how bad I wanted it.

He might get that on efbay but then have to pay fees and BS

I kinda agree but for me Fat Chance as much as they are nice but lack the agressive geometry of the Kona models from years 1997/1999. I tried many years ago a specialized M2 S Works but very harsh ride also tried a Cannondale F500 less harsh but not as comfortable as a high end steel MTB. The Voodoo Bizango in 853 is of my interest too but I am already on too many road bike projects and one last MTB project. Still one of my favorite MTB remains the Kona Explosif in Reynolds 853, the ones I have seen for sale have been abused or in very bad condition, patience is always the key when you get nice things.

This reminds me of a story I dust off on occasion. A fellow who knew nothing about bikes was tasked with selling his father-in-law's Colnago in the Tampa FL area. As I am want to do, I scanned the CL bike listings while we were there on vacation and noticed it. I arranged to meet him (in front of a restaurant, as I recall). The bike was in his trunk, completely disassembled. Even the wheels had been deconstructed, hubs, bag of spokes, bag of nipples, you get the idea.

Kinda bizzarre that the FB description seems to be something copied and pasted from somewhere just about the bottom bracket shell.....

Ad is now clear that it is just the frame, might be surprised by the location though? Now listed in CA, although that's not where the map shows the bike

Yep, and surprise, he came down on the price.

He stated the fork is $375 and wheels $650 but flexible on the wheels.

I think it's a 1992 and looks super clean. Ad has some incorrect info... it's steel and has 700cc wheels (I think). I wish I had room (and a 2nd rider) for it.
