It's been relisted several times. It's been for sale for 2+ years.

Maybe. I think there were some road frames painted up this way too, a number of years ago there was a road frame for sale on ebay for near or close to this asking price. I paid no mind and then one day saw a completed item showing of one that sold for $8,000. At least "on paper".

looks kinda cool. fairly unique. I bet the paint actually took quite a bit of time to do. i think this is something you have to draw people to your store, but no one actually buys, but people say things like "hey, have you seen the _____ at ____?" and people reply "no I'll have to go check that out sometime". Ebay is no different it brings people to the pros closet. The pros closet is great and actually sells lots of great vintage parts at really reasonable prices.

Now that little statement made me choke on my coffee - haha. JUST A COLNAGO - I never…..

I'd have to agree with cyclotoine - the paint scheme must have driven the painter nuts - but for his share of the $20000 i'm sure he'd get over it.

You would think 20 000 would get ou a better story than that. Thats 5 Pegorettis with equally artistic paint.
