Since this list praises framebuilders as much for their artistic work as for the frame's roadworthiness, I think you also get 2 extra joints to display the framebuilders artwork. This bike has proven its roadworthiness and probably wouldn't be used except for an occasional Cirque ride or the like anyway. But you can't dispute the beauty of those lugs. And, how many all black Shimano (early DuraAce) Crane groups do you see in this condition?!! Wish I had the room in the garage to add it to the collection.
