Small Doug Fattic light tourer

Yesterday morning I was perusing FB Marketplace while sipping my morning cup of tea and saw this lovely small Doug Fattic light tourer about 30 miles away. Way too small for me -- but it's my wife's...

If your goal is maximizing $$ then a buddy sale is not likely the way to go. Properly presented on eBay $900 to $1000 + is realistic -- but of course you then have to deal with fees and the hassles...

Did the tube or the tire fail causing the blowout on the bike in question? A loud explosive failure indicates a bead that has come loose or a tire sidewall that is dust that blew out under that 100...

When did Ben Serotta make frames in Italy? ;) That frame is most definitely NOT Italian. $150 is a giveaway price. I'd say $400 would be a quick sale, but I'd ask about $650.
