The seller screwed up and put the picture of the Gios dropout from his other listing into this one. The Sachs does not have a white drilled dropout.

Regarding shipping to Australia - The previous poster was correct - shipping bikes there is super expensive. Frames are even expensive unless you do a custom box to keep the size down, and pack very carefully. They often can't go US Postal, due to maximum size restrictions, so UPS and fedex have a lock, and charge about $350. It's a deal breaker. I recently shipped a 60c frame there, and the only way I could do it for a reasonable price, was to ship to the buyer's wife in LA, and have her forward it on with a shipment of film industry gear going in a large container (as in 40' ship container).

What got me scratchin' my head are the two pictures of the right rear dropout -- one with red paint, and the other with white!
