By the way, lest I suffer the wrath of Ken, I want to make clear that I did not intend to bad mouth the lovely Pantographica in my previous post. Obviously the bids to date speak to the value of this bike, and I imagine (hope) higher bids are ahead. I said that the bike is a bit form-over-function to point out that it is a show bike, not a race bike (though it is obviously a racing bike). Both have their place. Both are collectible. It may be more appropriate to make one of these display-only.
