What is ridiculous is bleating about those top sells here, why not call the SECOND highest bidders ridiculous? They're often only 10, or 25, or 50 bucks (or sometimes less than that) below the "winners."
There's a page on the CR website for "ridiculous prices"....let Mr. Brown decide what's ridiculous I say!
I'd give something fierce for an early colnago like that one that just sold if it were my size (61cm) ...
e-richie's right...in that nick a colnago of that vintage is rarer than a hen's nut
