Check out Africans link...It will take you to a Ferrari Collector's sale of a Colnago

I can't believe this guy...a nut job is right...Then again, this guy would probably prefer to squeeze his enoromous beer gut into a car, rather than do something benificial like eat right, ride the damn bike, etc.
But if he rides a $9k bike, he's a poseurSpoiler

Quite the paradox. Bike enthusiasts might indeed call it art, a monument to craftsmanship and an effort to preserve it for antiquity is a worthy cause.
Others it as a functional tool that although out of their reach, should be used for its intended purpose.
Some would say only a fat cat could affort it, and a fat cat on a speed machine is just as much of a waste as framing the frame.
Interesting marketingPaulCL

If he marketed the bike to cyclists, his price would have to drop but...market this bike as art to Ferrari owners, he might succeed in selling it. Let's face it, if you own a Ferrari, what's another $9000 for a piece of Ferrari art that you can also ride??

Of course, this is assuming that all Ferrari owners are morons and won't check prices on similiar issues. I highly doubt that's the case. On second thought, he'll never sell it....
build it as a fixie ...Spirito
