One of the coolest bikes on earth, in the WORST color possible. I'm not bidding.

Any bets on where it's going to end up ?

I'm bidding $40 001.
When I win it I'm gonna get rid of those crappy components and put a fixed gear wheel on it then get an aerospoke for the front. What color wheel should I get?

Ha! Next time you guys will read the fine print! - It says right there in B&W that the seller will ship it to me for just $195, so I contacted him and told him to go ahead.


Shipping: $195.00 - Standard Shipping from outside US
See all shipping details
International items may be subject to customs processing and additional charges.
Item location: See my other auctions !!!!, France
Ships to: Worldwide

Dang, if I had that much money I could buy enough bike crap to keep me happy for 3 more lifetimes!

It is sweet, but lots O' dough.

I showed it to my hubby, who knows nothing about bikes. He said if he saw it at a garage sale for $30, he wouldn't even buy it. Honestly, 6 months ago I would have passed it by too.
it is pretty sweet and yellow is my fave color. But I am currently $9,999 short so I guess I will pass on this one!

Why? I hate cars. I like classic bikes.

If I had the cash reserves, i might think about this..certainly before I'd waste my money on a car. The true cost of cars is the insurance, oil and maintenance...not the up front costs.

I love the color.
