Look closely at the frame and parts? Me thinks its a cheapo bike resprayed with GIOS transfers applied !!!

I wouldn't have thought a Gios would have mudguard eyes on the forks. Can't quite see the rear dropouts.

Reminds me of a "Colnago" I was watching a few weeks back:

Again it has mudguard eyes and has patently never been a Colnago, I love the bull about the "embroidering" being taken off the frame.

Some poor sucker paid good money for a fake.

Mark.

I got into a slagging match with the seller of that so called colnago! Telling him he's selling a fake colnago and is no way an original.

Looking at that so-called Gios :roll: Checkout the clamp on cable guide behind the chainset...lol

Best part about his listing is this......
''P.S. Please watch out for further offers as we are clearing out our massive collection of Classic Rare Road Bikes, Frames,& components.''

May just watch this seller to see what other crap he brings up.

This seller is only four miles from me by the way :shock:

Just had this reply from the seller[I asked him if the frame is Panto'd with GIOS anywhere ?........

Hi, to the best of our knowledge this bike is genuine as described, early models were panto'd as you described but later model were not this can be checked on Gios sites.

Well the 'Original rare SR APEX Chainset' is probably late 70's early 80's :roll:

Nutted brake calipers and missing its brake cable guides on the top tube

One to compare with http://www.raydobbins.com/ebay/bike-gio ... r_sale.htm

I do feel that if this were an original (No chance BTW) that they may have actually managed to get the head tube badge in the middle of the tube :wink:
