I received an unsolicited offer through eBay e-mail to buy a Colnago CF3. I responded and the want-to-be seller replied. What follows is his e-mail offer, my reply and question, and his subsequent reply. You couldn't make up stuff like this...you gotta love it!!!!

======================
HIS INITIAL E-MAIL OFFER

Hello,
I have a new COLNAGO CF3 only for 1000$.I want to sell it fast.
Thanks

MY REPLY AND QUESTION

Wow, thanks, can you tell me more about it? Is this the one with the helium filled carbon fiber tubes for better climbing and lighter weight? I am interested if it is!!!

Frank

HIS REPLY
