But even with gold at the price it is and the frame being made of SOLID gold (which I doubt since it says plated) it can't weigh more than 10lbs for the frame. And thats being EXTREMELY liberal. That would still only value JUST the gold at $150,000. The components are nice, Colnagos own, but still there is no WAY that bike is worth that much.

And whose gonna shell out a quarter mil and then still have to pay shipping. On a SHOW bike that the Pope never even owned?

Why buy a bicycle you can't ride?  That's offensive to the bicycle.

Collectors man, one of the shops back home in NY has a $15,000 Colnago Ferrari Edition. Its like one of 3 on the north american continent.
