<< If I'm not mistaken this was offered last winter by another gentleman with an opening bid of about $300.00. The seller ended the auction prematurely to make a private sale. It may have been another bike but the description was incredibly familiar. It was offered to several list members at that time.

I don't remember this particular bike but I am put off (once again!) by this seller's style repartee... It is always curious how these type seller's attempt to "educate" the buyer by saying how valuable the item is while it seems obvious that no one would consider bidding at this level unless they already knew about the item. What about that description of size! Easy to decipher, eh? Such lousy photos too! Do you think this is an attempt to obscure details and further mislead? Obviously a special & neat bike but geez......
