isn't this completely irrational? An 80s De Rosa track bike, no special parts, not in very good shape. Did the buyer understand what he/she was buying?

I am utterly gobsmacked by this one. I'd sure like to know how it is that both seller, and buyer, thought this thing was worth 5K. Because, from where I sit, it was worth a grand, if that.

Sometimes this little world of ours is totally weird.
