Totally. A much nicer 700c Routens sold for around the $2000 mark about 6 months ago. As nice as Routens stuff was, it has nowhere near the collectability of a Rene Herse and the seller is asking Herse money.

I actually like this more. A much better price too.

I agree with you 100% on that.

such a shame really, when such gems pop up...



My post about this bike has been pulled by the moderators due to the fact I defamed the guy, I should have said in my opinion the guy is........etc.

Oh, and received a warning.

I've tried to play by the rules, occasionally I slip up, maybe I'll just stick to myself in future.


i see he sold it without any mention of any damage.. maybe wal42 had a valid point (but failed in the diplomatic delivery of said point)..

Perhaps I can convince my better half that its a long term investment opportunity?

Disagreed. This became the "hey let's all post random eBay/gumtree links" thread a LONG LONG time ago. Much easier to keep it all in the one location.

+1, the bikes are nice (not my cup of tea, Colnagos and the like do nothing for me) but over $3,000 each is silly IMO.

I dunno, he is in Europe and if he has a reputation as someone who restores bikes to as new (or keeps them as new which is better) like the Farrens here in Australia, then $3000 (say 2000 sterling?) is not too bad. They aren't making these any more and you can't buy very much in a modern bike for that sort of cash.
We tend to be a bit on the Scrooge side here in Oz and don't differentiate much between immaculate and 'slightly scuffy' with older bikes.
Slightly surprised he has put them on e-bay instead of using a proper specialist auction house if he really wanted to sell.

Yes it sold buyer was more than happy with bike and so was I with the price,it sold for about what I expected and not what the bloke on here thought it would go for.Buyer came and had a good look at it before bidding and also on pick up and was obviously clued up on what to look at

Did you specifically tell the buyer you knew the bike was damaged? Your bike, your sale, and all that, but that's just bad karma man.
