|I am guessing that it is a FOCO frame with carbon rear stays? I don't think that it is Ti because of the small diameter of the tubes overall, specifically the chainstays.
Hmmmm...seems to be a trend for the pros to run carbon posts too...
How much is an UltraFOCO frame with carbon seatstays built up with Ultegra?

|Looks to me like a Pinarello Opera. Made of their Pegaso EOM 16,5 steel with an Aria carbon fork.
If it weren't for the funky orange rims, it'd be a real lust bike.

|Makes me think back to a line of orange bikes from the 70's. This go-around, though, I suspect the color will stand out more (at VA tech, there were an awful lot of Crescents).|

|You should really give Chorus a look. A classic bike like that really deserves nice Campy parts.|
|It has an awfully high seatpost....||PdxMark|

|You better have a lot of money saved up or you'll have to run up a big charge account balance if you're looking at Pinarello Operas or Princes. If I'm correct, I think the frame alone cost more than $2,000. With Ultegra, you're talking about at least a $3,000 bike. With Record, like the bike in photo, more than $4,000.|

|Followed the link for the Carol Addy article (how did I manage to have a Fuji Finest as my first "good" bike and never see the poster?) and found that orange bike photo a few Maynard Hershon articles later:
"You proprably aren't that interested, but...Miguel Indurain, five-time Tour de France winner, rode this custom Pinarello, with a carbon rear triangle, and new Campy Record when he was in Austin, Texas recently."
|i would kill for a set of those "gold" mavic rims...NICE NM||Spirito di Finocchio|
