Pipe dream of the day

Though we (mostly) post realistic finds on this website, we will periodically feature ‘pipe dreams’ (a non-derogatory term we will apply henceforth to all expensive* bikes, whether the bike is actually worth the asking price or not) just for fun.

*where “expensive” might be a dollar/Euro/pound figure most reasonable people might associate more with, say, an automobile than a bicycle.

Here’s one.
