    They're proud of this one, judging by the price.

    Appropriately priced, but it looks like this seller hired an (uninformed) ad agency for a $50 Next!

    I like the not 1, not 2, but 3 non-drive side photos. It's like they planned it.

    Why spend over $10,000 on a Cunningham when you could have this Ross.

    Budget Bicycle Center is clueless. Has anyone been in there? Are they really this dumb?

    I woulda bought it, but then they went and took $6K off the price by clamping it on the seat tube.

    You ask $14K for a bike, then go and do that to it? WTF?

    Yes....I've always wondered how they arrive at their asking prices.

    Or maybe he's a genius and really only targets uneducated buyers by creating a high price differential between his items (in store and ebay) making items that are simply overpriced seem relatively inexpensive when compared to the outrageously priced ones.

    I do this all them time at garage sales, swap meets or whatever. Have one or two items priced really high and labeled prominently and price the other items just a bit higher than "typical" and by comparison they seem cheap. 50% of the time it works all the time!

    He's not advertising it as a Ritchey. In the description he clearly states it's a Pacific. It probably has a Ritchey stem or had a Ritchey tyre at one stage of it's life.

    And besides, he's dropped the price from $50,000 to $15,000 so he can't be considered unreasonable.

    My father had one and from what I recall one of the decals said they were produced by Astro-Daimler. Must have been a year when the exchange rate was competitive for bringing European bikes into the US. Before the Japan invasion. Back in the days when Puegeot, Motobecane and a few other Euro road lines wer were hot in the US. But it's a road bike in a Mtn thread.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.
