At least they're honest about this but do they seriously reckon they'll get that much coin for it?

That would be nice.

23 1/2" frame makes it a touch too big though, thankfully.

Not for me! I've been perusing shipping options, but they cost more than the frame unfortunately.

It may not be a Colnago, but it is a decent frame. Look at the lugs & dropouts.

Edit: Can that. The rust patches look bad enough to be structural. And it's in Anglesea.

without the 'C' was insufficient to ward off the Germans, so Mr Richardson, (who owned a Porsche car) had to rename the bikes be produced, so then Ricardo bikes were born.

Are we assuming that big ding in the top tube is just a trick of the light?

PMSL - they've shown the full address of that one, and it's a flat I lived in for a year in 1997 :lol:

Assuming that block hasn't been bulldozed and re-built since then, it's a dump, and the soon-to-be-ex GF is probably not worth missing anyway :mrgreen:

Oh, I dunno.

It'd look nice as a display-piece somewhere, or for the missus or daughter.

But I doubt I'd be riding it much... :shock:
I don't care if it's a $20 Huffy or a $20k Colnago, if you're riding it, and you're happy, it's a good bike.
