    It's very nice but I think he's optimistic.

    I have one from the 80's enamel red, chrome fork, rare white seat, full Chorus 6 speed group set, original pump and it appears to have done about 50 dry miles in it's life time.

    I will never ride it. So was thinking about selling but not sure of what they went for and what was the best time to sell?

    I reckon he'd better get the hooks up ready!

    If he'd kicked it off at say a grand might have gone to one and a half, but 1700 start is a bit off putting I suspect.

    £1700... piccolo / grande rear hub, but other than that nothing special is it, i think that'll end up nailed to the wall for the rest of his days...

    NOW before the demand for non-essentials completely evaporates in a cloud of economic hardship!

    No-one bid. Time for a reality check?

    I rather suspect he didn't REALLY want to sell it at all! Not uncommon: It's called making a gesture (usually to the partner). "See, I would have sold it, but I'm not going to give it away. Good as money in the bank." Only it ISN'T if no one will come up with the money...
