This one hurts.

I never noticed it.

Yes, I would have bid aggressively.

I wonder if that top tube measurement is true?

Yes, that went cheap. Maybe the problem of low feedback.

I think the top tube could well be 54 cm, the head tube looks on the larger side for a 57 cm center to top frame.

Just noticed the seller has zero feedback. I wonder if that sent up red flags. So the first thing you sell on ebay is a classic bike? Ya never know.

Well, the seller is not that aware of older bikes. It is not full Campagnolo, at least not with Weyless hubs.

The problem is the buyer is suspect.

Are the measurements accurate?

That's the question I ask myself when these opportunities pop up.

It's a real pain in the rear to ship bicycles back. I had to do that recently.

I agree, probably the vary same reason that I was able to get a good price winning bid on the Polchlopek TT bike I bought last last week, seller had zero feedback.
My seller also required local pickup in the SoCal desert area, so I had to pony up a couple hundred to get the seller to deliver to a bike shop for boxing, pick it up later in the week, then take to UPS for big money oversize box..., ouch.
