I think this was cheap, on checking the highest bidder they have zero purchases? would this be odd or would the sale be pulled?

I would love this!! 3 bids already


I hate it when there's a O buyer bidding. It reeks of fraud to me. Keep driving the price up d***g.

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.

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)..

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.
