Super-cool Colnago frame here. A real find.

I hope a CR member ends up with it. I'm just glad it's not my size!

and then there's this one. I found it bemusing that you had to decipher the description almost word-by-word, and read one of the answers to an obvious question about the paint, to find out this bike has been repainted with home-made (but well-done) graphics. Why the seller couldn't just say "this frame was repainted two years ago with home-made graphics" is a mystery. Cool bike, authentic color, looks like, but the paint's too thick, for my taste anyway.
