Ya know, if a person is going to try to sell one of the Japanese Paramounts for $1900, they should at least:

1) get a certificate from Lance that it was indeed bought by Lance and not just some pudknocker in Richardson, TX.
2) clean the mud off the bottom bracket.

Three of my bikes have Richardson Bike Mart stickers on them, so I am sitting on a gold mine since I met Lance way back in the day, when he was a triathlete, he used to ride out to Lake Lavon and stopped by the boat dock once, as he was friends with one of the other employees

Your special edition hologram Spiderman POG is probably worth at least $2500 because everyone knows Spiderman could have totally dropped Lance up Alpe d'Huez.

Interesting that it has been in his family since mid-80's when the bike was not built until around 1990. Fork looks like it may be bent.

I used to take my Popeil Pocket Fisherman to the boat dock at Lake Levon. Maybe I should put it up on Craigslist for $1900

ALL of my bikes have ridden to Lake Lavon!

OK, OK, the Dam is only 4 miles away, but still. I was also just in RBM. Man, this is awesome!

Think I can get $1900 for my Miyata oneten? I'll by an RBM water bottle and then ride it to Lavon, and back even.

Leave it to us to pic a picture clean - If not for the price its not a bad bike - But then again the connection to Lance might be worth the extra money to some one - I once saw a set of rusty old guitar strings go for 1100.00 because they once were on Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar - Hey I could clean this bike up really easy - But I am not to sure about the 1900.00 bucks...

You guys have it all wrong. Lance is a guy that worked at RBM. Mr. Armstrong was a wrench in the back, and had a good, strong career outfitting the PDG frames as they came out of the box. The only yellow jersey this Lance Armstrong ever wore was the one he got playing AYSO soccer, but it was a Lance Armstrong. The ad never says it was the Lance Armstrong.

I have some NIB, pre-Federal Investigation Maillot Jaune LiveStrong road chalk, designed by The Man himself, from the "Lance 2.0" Tour of California era. Very Rare!!!!!!!!!!

Below are some of the details:

Box is Le Tour yellow with black lettering.
Box contains four (4) virgin sticks of chalk in the hue of the historic and unforgetable Maillot Jaune

Priceless, I know, but will sacrifice in trade for a De Rosa Primato. (And please, please, please don't try to low ball me with a Neo Primato, either.)
