Red handlebar tape

Is there any bike that red bar tape won’t automatically spruce up? Here’s a rather plain-looking Atala that’s been given a nice visual kick in the pants courtesy of the colored cotton wrapped around the handlebar.

Seller is threatening to part out if the bike doesn’t sell.

UP FOR SALE IS A REALLY NICE ATALA CRONOS FROM 1982/83. I’LL CUT TO THE CHASE; THIS BIKE HAS VERY LOW MILES AND FOR THE MOST PART IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. NOW THE 3 NEGITIVES, 1.THE PAINT ON THE TOP TUBE HAS SOME TOUCH UP, PLEASE SEE THE PICS. 2. THERE IS ALSO A SMALL DING ON THE TOP TUBE, AND COULD BE A FAIRLY EASY FIX AS WELL AS THE PAINT DEPENDING ON YOUR SKILLS. 3.THE BRAKE LEVERS ARE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE AND HAVE ZERO CRASHES, ONLY SMALL NICKS, BUT THE REAR BRAKE LEVER IS MISSING THE SMALL BLACK SHOULDERED BUSHINGS. IT’S STILL WORKS BUT HAS LIGHT PLAY. I BELEIVE I HAVE SOME AROUND, I’LL TRY TO FIND THEM THIS WEEK.

NOW THE POSITIVES AND THERE ARE MANY. JUDGING BY THE BRAKE WEAR, BB GREASE AND OVERALL CONDITION, IT HAS VERY LOW MILES. THE HUBS ARE ICEY SMOOTH, MAVIC MA2 RIMS ARE TRUE, BRAKING SURFACE IS EXCELLENT, AND SPOKES ARE 36H SS.
DBL BUTTED.
ORIGINAL MANUAL INCLUDED AND IN EXCLLENT SHAPE.
SERIAL # 82 D1457/23
CHROME STAYS AND FORK!
COLUMBUS TUBING!
SILCA FRAME PUMP INCLUDED!
FLAWLESS SKEWERS
THE PEDALS ARE NEAR FLAWLESS CONDITION WITH ICEY SMOOTH BEARINGS AND COULD SOLD AS NEW. THE TOECLIPS ARE, NEW/NOS CHRISTOPHE. THE STRAPS ARE ALFREDO BINDA THAT ARE GREAT TO LOOK AT, BUT I WOULD NOT RIDE THEM.

I DID TAKE THE TIME TO DO SOME FRAME OFF CLEANING, CHAIN, FRONT&REAR DERAILEUR, CRANKS AND PEDALS.
I PULLED THE BB TO CHECK OUT THE GREASE AND FOUND CLASSIC FRESH’ISH RED BULLSHOT.
SELLE GI-LUX 311 SADDLE HAS LIGHT WEAR, BUT NO KNARFS OR SCRATCHES.
THE BARS ARE BEAUTIFUL HAVE NEW BAR TAPE BUT THE LEVER OBVIOUSLY HAVE THE INCORRECT HOODS, MORE FOR SHOW THAN GO.
THIS BIKE WILL BE LISTED ONLY FOR 3 DAYS THEN IT WILL BE PARTED OUT. IT WOULD REALLY BUMB ME OUT IF I HAD TO DO IT, BIKES THAT LAST THIS LONG NEED TO STAY AS ONE, SO MAKE ME AN OFFER!
