Subject: [CR]Outing an ebay auction, ...Rare US Cycling

I lead such a exciting life that late Saturday night I decided to scan through all the listings in the "Collectibles>Transportation>Bicycles" section of ebay. I am sure there is quite a few of us that know about this "misplaced" category, 95% of the listings are OT. But you can find some Gems now and then, and the bidding is a little less competitive, due to the smaller sample group and even guys that know to look there sometimes get discouraged and neglect to pay it its due consideration.

I did happen upon something quite nice and ended up winning it this morning, but I will wait till I get it so I can verify all the features.

Anyway in my travels I came across this auction that has about 2 days left and so far only one bid. It is a little interesting and I thought some of the members might be able to shed some light on the veracity of the tale set fort in the auction, and the possible authenticity of the merchandise.

If the link dose not work it is ebay # 270045524511

Also if the one bidder is a list member, sorry, I could not resist
