Please read my www.vulpine.cc blog about this beloved bike. It is unique, literally a work of art and has quite a story to it. It was overseen and approved by Ernesto Colnago himself, in aid of Ridley Scott's sons' charity Leuka, via the Fireflies Ride. A friend and I actually got these frames made.
I've taken a year to finally admit defeat on and sell. I have a back issues problem which mean I can no longer ride it
It has been featured in Road.cc news article, amongst others:
The worth of this bike is difficult to calculate, due to it's story
and rarity. I'm in no rush and if it doesn't reach it's full potential I'll just wait until the right collector/Colnago enthusaist comes along.
The frame is perfect, apart from some rubbed paint on seat cluster and cable guides, which can be seen on the images.
I am reluctant to post this bike, but may consider it. If it is posted, it will be with the help of a professional bike shop and there may be an additional but fair insurance and courier cost involved. Collection is preferable though. I am happy to discuss.
Please note that the components are not a standard groupset, but are chosen for their aesthetic match to the frame. Please see my blog link for the full build. All components are new apart from the rear mech, shifters and brake calipers, which were used for a short period on my titanium road bike. The wheels have been used the most, at about 1000 miles, but are in excellent condition and perfectly true.
The bike is sold WITHOUT Time RXS pedals, but I will include them if the price reached is fair. I will also happily swap some components such as stem, etc, if you have a personal preference, as I have a good collection of spare parts.
I need this to go to a loving home (I'm only semi-joking!)
