Listers Just a little background on this bike. It was built for the 1983 Show and had some very unique touches. Campagnolo group was disassembled and alloy parts were anodized Black. All Steel parts which showed were GOLD PLATED (even gear and brake cables!!) Further gold touches were created by cutting up a Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin and soldering crescents of actual gold as accents (bike has substancial amount of gold applied this way) maybe the coin collectors among us might be able to give actual gold weight used as Bruce used the whole coin.. You can see one of these crescents on the head lug which barely shows in the sellers crappy pictures. I believe we can safely say there is no other bike like this anywhere except for the Popes Gold bike.

As someone said....................Bid High and Bid Often .............................................before Lou Deeter gets it

BOB FREITAS not a GOLD BUG in MILL VALLEY, CA USA
