    Specialized does paint samples on frames for possible color options for the next model year, then sells them on their "blem" list. That is normally how these happen, it is how i got my 2009 Demo 8 frame with the 2010 paint scheme. They sold as "used" and without a warranty.

    I would just ask the guy what the story is.....
    If it seems ridiculous then you know to stay away.
    May be a good chance to pick up a dope bike...
    That thing is beautiful!!!
    Not to mention it is rockin a firebird.

    That is in fact the Smokey and the Bandit TransAm firebird. I think its weird that this turns up the same time Decline runs an article on someone doing a custom paint job on a helmet in the same theme. Related? Either way, Badass!

    Is it possible for a regular customer to see the blem list and pics for a possible purchase?

    That thing is RAD, nice find...I'd hop on it if you have the funds or are looking for one.
    Some blems are RRREALLY ugly...that one is actually pretty sick.

    Let us know what happened...
