Personally, I don't doubt that there will be somebody who will pay at least the opening bid, because as Barnum said, "there is one born every minute". For me, a collector buying this bike is only slightly better off than a Maserati collector buying a Maserati TC: a quaint filler to complete the collection.

Oh, I dunno about that. This bike seems a bit more interesting than just as "quaint filler." I don't think you have to be a sucker to buy it for the opening bid, either.

Chacun a son gout, I suppose..but all the points you mention are easily rectified..I will say that I kinda wonder why Alex---Alex, you wanna clarify this?---didn't lengthen the chain and raise the seat-post. Note that the internal routing on the herse I have, which is exactly like this one, does not involve putting the entire housing through the tube, the entry and exit fittings function as cable-stops...it looks like there's enough housing there to do the job, given the way the internal routing works on Herses of this flavor. If indeed this one works that way, and there's no reason to suppose it doesn't...

the bike could be more attractively set-up, but all that is a matter of a half-hour's work and a few dollars worth of odds and ends.

I'm glad it's not my size.. because that pink is looking better..it's more like a candy pink.

I still wish Herse had continued with the painted-on logos.

I do agree that the 650b Herses with all the custom bits are the most entertaining Herses, but I agree with Mikey, this one will easily fetch the opening bid.
