Whoa! Hold on! Not so!! Professori Tomassini Hayes screwed up on this one, big time! Obviously failing to realize that his auction might be viewed by those outside the USA, he uses imprecise and confusing terminology!!

"....Included in the auction is the rear wheel drop-out adjusters and the seatpost pin."

"Seat pin"? Is it the seat post (in the UK for instance) or a seat post binder bolt (might be what he meant, looking at the pictures)?

Plus suggesting that a Richie Sachs frame be built with Shimano (!) is also of questionable taste.....

This is a surprising slip up by this seller (who I know to be a true gentleman and scholar.)
