He's a student who collects a bit of bicycle exotica. Good to see such a young guy interested. I like buying off him, my sister lives over the road.

'Don't know the guy' = 'I'm not pushing one of my mate's eBay sales'.

Has some good stuff, I agree.

I'm quite intrigued by this MS 2 star, would be keen on it if it had stayed lower:

I call this optimistic http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... ink:top:en , but if it sells, I'll expedite the sale of a spare 979 I have hanging in the shed.

Not sure I'd be rubbing my hands together yet, I'd still want at least double what it's at now.

It's difficult to go past a custom bike like this, when looking for quality http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/parkinson/bicycles/custom-racer-bike/1014775430 It is somewhat disappointing that accessories are not included.

I'd have given him double if he hadn't slopped ceiling white all over the poor thing. :roll:

That's no gas pipe, they're cromo, and if i wasn't downsizing in a big way (and if it was my size) i'd love a Univega Conquest.

This looks tempting. It could be a Yamaguchi or some other Japanese frame builder. Was Tange the only aero tube manufacturer? Some nice bits on it as well.
