Now that's my kind of bike. Of course since it's not a racing or touring bike I think he'll be lucky to get $2000, which is really too bad. I do have one thing I find odd about the bike. This bike has a downtube decal and not hand-drawn lettering like all the other Herses I've seen. See the decal here <http://www.pianosromantiques.com/images/schott8211.JPG>. Does anyone know the story about this? The hand-drawn lettering is one of those things that make Herse bikes special in my mind. best, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Vancouver, B.C.
