Hate to be nit picky...

That is a pretty cool and unusual bike... but the auction says "Made for the Team by Colnago with special Boule d'or castings..", which is vaguely kinda sorta semi-true. Yes, the fork crown (only) is a casting (not the lugs, those are stamped) and then the seat stay caps and fork crown are engraved/pantographed with the Boule d'Or lettering.

But you all knew all that anyway, right?

I have been watching this auction since the start and keep on expecting it to take off, but still no activity. I find this to be a very interesting bike. Any comments?

A Colnago with Boule d'Or lugs and decals.
