Spotted! Mario Confente in Blue.

Okay, so I'm visiting San Francisco to see family. I took a nice bike shop-themed bike ride and hit a few bike shops today (American Cyclery, Refried Bikes, MASH Transit, etc)

I was looking at the vintage/track bikes section of American cyclery, and lo and behold... the first time I ever saw in person after talking about it a few weeks ago on this forum about my Colner. Stood about a feel away from one in the flesh.

Any Confente experts can zoom in on that pic (with my crappy IPhone resolution) and dispell any details regarding the bike? # out of 135, past owners, how it ended up at American cyclery, etc?

It's on sale for $12,000. The guy asked me twice if I wanted to buy it, I thought about how many people actually came in and knew enough to ask about it.
