What say you, fans? If it's a fake, they definitely went through some trouble to make it appear real.

I'm not really sure about the value, even if it is genuine, but I know better than to ask a question like that, in the wrong forum.

Bobby rode for Cofidis in 1997 and did ride that brand, but the first question I have is "Where's the number hanger on the top tube?". Barring the presence or evidence of that, I'm in the "not true" camp.

I searched around for pics of Cofidis 1997 bikes, and I noted one with a number hanger, and the other just used two zip ties. I think the zip ties would work fine, I don't see any critical need for a number hanger if that's the case. I raced a few times and seem to recall doing something along those lines to attach my number, since I didn't happen to own a bike that had a hanger (still don't).

No idea if legit. Not like it would significantly boost the worth.

Now if Alberto's Trek frame with 500 fan signatures were to appear for sale, that might be worth a teensy bit more.
