If indeed the hubs are Cinelli Bivalent (can't really tell from the limited images) that definitely adds some value although the starting price still looks to be ridiculously high. The seller describes the frame size as "L". Perhaps with some dialogue from any interested potential purchasers the seller might be convinced to provide greater image and description detail as well as possibly adjust the price to a level more in keeping with reality and likely to incite participation in the auction?

Mark; It may be a Magnum Opus, but worth is way overstated and if lucky the seller as you say might realize about 40% to 50% of the starting bid.

Best regards, Peter Naiman Glendale, WI

Considering the crank is the very rare "semi-cottered" T.A. ('Cottered'crank-Rebour.jpg) and the Mafacs are also not too widely sown, this bike might be worth half of the staring price.

Best, kim
