Pipe dream of the day: wall art edition

Almost a shame it was never ridden (purportedly). One wonders if that is what Antonio Colombo would have wanted.

Sellers are asking silly money for these bikes, naturally.

This bike was purchased in 1985 from Conrad’s on the Upper East Side of NYC. Single owner. He purchased this bike and hung it on his wall for 30 years, never rode it. It is in mint condition. Even the original Wolber Neo Pro tires are in excellent condition and hold air, the sidewalls are dry.

This is an amazingly rare bike. With some research I believe it was in the bike show in NYC for Cinelli. Conrad’s probably took it for sale and the original owner who purchased it in 1985 and has kept in on his wall for 30 years gave it for us to sell.

The decal on the Roval hubs is just peeling a little bit.

Some nicks and chips here and there, but overall in truly excellent condition. It probably would cost $4000+ to assemble the same bike today.

Will be secured shipped in the SERFAS bike case ($300 value).

Seat tube is 54.00 cm measured from the center of the BB to the center of the top tube, and approx. 55.25 cm measured from the center of the BB to the top of the seattube. Top tube is 55 cm C to C.
