No connection to seller, etc. Item no. 230577355889

I've been watching this for almost a week and noticed it does not turn up on a normal eBay search. Currently has a single bid of \u20ac2200, only 19 hours to go, and listing says free international shipping.

700c. 53cm by 54cm. No Singer stem but most of the other bells and whistles like racks, diamond fender reinforcements, and lights with internal wiring. Also desirable components like Super Champion rims, Maxi-Car hubs, TA triple-crankset, and Mafac brakes. Photos on eBay are small and fairly useless for judging condition but seller sent me 16 very good high res scans.

I've been trying to talk myself into this all week, but I'd really need to be head over heels in love with it and I'm not. Nonetheless it clearly merits a good home and some thoughtful tlc.
