I tried to bid $10, but the minimum was $75! And to find out it is not even a real bamboo bike! Only a steel bike with bamboo covering. Fugly!
Not all that ancient, either ...Humma Hah

... I've seen 'em around before. Not real common, but I believe they were produced in significant quantity.

Still, might be worth $75 just as a conversation piece. What the heck, I'd ride a century on it, but then again, I'd ride a century on durned near ANYTHING with two wheels.

Alas, the garage is full, and sweetie-pie is watching my bike collection like a hawk.
Now, if Lance only had that bike. ...lyleseven

However I have a Sram Woody rear derailleur on my mountain bike and it looks pretty cool.
