Well bought sunho, I look forward to seeing more detail. Do you have a powder coat and deep V colour in mind?

It's not a coppi, more of a copy.

Those shifters are either SunRace or Microshift, in either case reasonable quality. My problem with it is the bend on those bars, yuck!

At least they are down tube rather than some of the stem shifters in this price range ala Reid, Target etc..

If you are going to have a (in the sellers words) "tribute bike", you would think you would spell the blokes name correctly when you plaster it on the downtube.... That thing is 'orrible.

I believe you are thinking of the Il Campionissimo Fausto Coppi

Kinda cool, but def. not 5 thousand smackers cool.

First time I've seen some of that Porshe livery. Didn't realise the head stickers were such a rip off of the Porsche / Stuttgart crest. Would love a repro for one of my Ricardo frames :D

That "Porsche" bike is not worth more than $250.00. Gas pipe quality. Hardly unique, I 've seen others. Stickers don't make a dog of a bike any better. Good luck to the seller, I don't think there's anyone that dumb.

To be honest I think $25 would be optimistic, would be doing the world a favour using the porsche as a boat anchor rather than keeping it as a BSO.

Surely they typed in 5000 when they did the listing and just forgot the . in the middle of it. It cant be seriously $5k. Surely. Then again..... this is eBay we are talking about :roll:

Looks the same as the one my brother in law has. One day they wanted me to pick up a piece of furniture and I could have the old Malvern Star. I thought being generous that I could live with that deal. When I eventually dragged the furniture out at their place they pointed to another bike..a clapped out rusty cheap Malvern Star mtb!! I took it straight to the dump feeling annoyed and a little foolish. Doh!

With the placement of the 'gear stick' be sure that no further children are planned.

And what could be missing from that name? :roll:
