Subject: [CR]I wish to sell my sister to fund a bike (you'll understand why)


When I was little Francesco Moser was God (only an italian could be God, no?). Everything impossible, dreamlike and ethereal was from a little country that made cars that rusted before they were assembled, films that had no discernable plot but enough flesh to keep me enthralled and cyclists that sped like they were on the wings of angels. Moser was the one we all thought was super human. Moser was untouchable (or so we thought).

Now I plod around on ebay looking at same old, same old and I find a true Gem, not only that but outed by our very own Don Matteo ... patron

saint of Unearthing Bikes I Would Sell My Sister For !!!! ®\u2122 Matteo has listed a De Rosa track bike previously owned/used by Francesco Moser. Time warp and my wonderlust has tripped.


or item # 110247431456

I ask Matteo straight away ..... And has just shamed me by stating whilst my sister is very nice (and shapely) he would much prefer the money. WTF'uncoolio ????!!!??? So it's over to youse .... What say ye CR folks???? How much can I get for my sister? On-Topic (just btw), blonde (bar wrap and toe straps) and with plenty of assets (monetary and otherwise). Sorry Dale, I don't have a fixed price but I'd rather "fish" here first as I can't ebay her and He Who Must Not Be Named\u2122 (from Boston) isn't in the market for another Aussie Blonde.

Please help me, Moser madness has struck me again. I need it, Bad ... or I'm gonna suffer and pout and cry and end up buying another Fiat/Alfa/Lancia and swear that the Devil is also Italian.
