Not cycling related, but words cannot describe how badly I want this thing, the velociraptor cage from the opening scene of Jurassic Park. Currently at over $100,000 :shock: .

I saw all of this sellers bikes for sale last year - in Poland. Notice the snow in the background in some of the other bike shots.

I wonder if they've moved or set up a middle man?

Too right it's tempting, one that finally has the measurements the right way around (60cm seat tube 56 top). If only...

Limited edition!! They only put shimano 100GS on the good bikes & Peter Brook Brock was a well known bike car racer so gas pipe with his sponsors and colour scheme must be worth at least $800

Jan Ullrich's original bike jerseys You know they are authentic because "i personally got these items from Jan himself." Regrettably it they don't come with the EPO that made Jan a superstar.

Good thing I backed off then - I was going to give Mr $1,200 Shogun another spray, but somehow I suspect that he is immune to ridicule as well as reason :D

yeah certainly all of those items were definitely in poland, I saw them too. Setting up a middle man is more likely no? Look at the selling history, one negative comment as well the seller was being unreasonable, maybe shipped bikes hasn't arrived yet or seller realised he can't make his money back.
