Well, Bradley Wiggins bought it!

“I don’t know if you saw Indurain’s team Banesto bike, there was a thing about it a couple weeks ago on the internet. I ended up buying it. It’s one of his time trial bikes from 1992, he won a stage of the Tour de Romandie on it.  

“The seller wanted $75,000 for it on eBay. I didn’t pay that, I contacted him directly and asked him straight up, ‘How much do you really want for it?’ I had a chat with him. He didn’t even want that much for it, but he put that price on because he didn’t want to get underdone for it.  

“I’m not telling you how much I paid for it. Less than 75,000, oh f*** yeah! A lot less!”

He’s got plenty more, too.
