I thought this was a very interesting auction:
Seems to me this is clearly a lower-line production or semi-production bike from Herse. I wouldn' t be surprised if someone told me the frame was subbed out, and Herse's characteristic paint and graphics applied. The overall build is lower-quality too (note that the brakes are not secured to the rear-stays, for instance..) plus, condition is not the greatest..
Mike Kone, if you haven't already discussed this bike, or I missed it, what do you think of it?
I know the final selling price seems quite high to me, given what I see.
