Very odd listing. Look at his one feedback as a seller...it is from an antique dealer in Brooklyn, NY. Then, he states that he has worked in the bike "industry for 20 odd years." I don't know the seller, and am not saying that he won't deliver, it just seems a bit odd...what with that one message where a prospective buyer talks up the item and his experience selling antique vases.

Who knows. Nice bike, though. >>

Ah, the hyperbole of eBay! "Brand new!" ....amazing!

Nah, Campy never drilled stuff out like that.. I wrote a message to the seller.. Let's see if it gets added to those which are already there (All of which are as kookie as the sellers description.)

BTW those are USA made Arnold (Black anodized) alloy top & bottom pivot bolts and (gold anodized) crank bolts on that bike.

Also note that those are NR parts, not SR, Cinelli M71 pedals (Has he got the unique cleats to go with them?).

But it is a cool bike.

Also The Bike Source, Charlotte store is part of a chain of shops headquartered in Ohio I think? As far as I know, they have no older or experienced employees. Mac Cannon the racer worked there briefly some years ago but I haven't heard of them having a vintage knowledgeable employee (which this guy obviously is not either.)
