Sounds like a pathological hoarder trying to prove they CAN let stuff go... if someone bids on it, that is...
I have seen many boxes and old packaging for sale for the old school BMX stuff....I've wondered if anybody actually purchases the stuff.....I do happen to have a NOS TX500 fork at home...I wonder if it needs old, used packaging?
I actually looked at that ad with the intention of buying it to use as a Belt drive IGH bike. I can't seem to find a Yeti for that cheap but I ended up passing on it because it's still not worth nearly $400.
In all reality, there have been many bikes that were cloned and and raced. Kona took some Turners and renamed them and the industry accepted them, so at least this guy is clearly stating that it's a clone. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
This bike is a limited production bike, #159 / 500 Lance Armstrong Tour de France win number five. It was a special Madone model, and was new-for-2004 aerodynamically enhanced version of OCLV frame that was first seen at the 2003 Tour de France. It has only a few rides, thus limited milage and is in pristine condition. The bike was bought as a collectable investment and it is now time to release and let someone enjoy the ride...
Uhhhhhm, I think the time to sell it would have been last year before he was busted. Not that I have any ill feelings towards the guy but let's face it, nobody is really looking for Lance Armstrong collectibles right now. lol

Saw this on the Bay today, maybe I will get flamed because someone is willing to pay full retail for a nearly 20 yr old bike, but dang!
