That is indeed lovely... The seller seems to know what they have though by the description. I wonder how much they want for it :?:

Yes I contacted him today just to know.
He’s asking for something around 1400$ CAD.

Shame about the dents. 1400 seams a bit steep.

absolutely!

I agree that handmade bikes come at a price but if at least it would have been taken care of and was rebuilt the way it should be.

Not for over here in the UK at the moment, that's about £820 and is equally worth three or four times the prices of the STX/LX low to mid range frame bikes are selling for.
Given they are getting silly money at £250-450, this is practically a bargain. especially as the company, or DeKerf will tell you things like when it was made, current recommended colours to spray it etc.

Agree with this completely, it's actually a very good price, although I am assuming this includes the stem/bar combo - I recently found out how much Dekerf would charge for one of these alone and we are talking a significant amount.

Although I have not had the pleasure I have also heard that he is very responsive regarding frames, dates etc. More so than other frame builders I could mention, where you get a production year at best.

There's a slightly larger frame of the same vintage for sale over here at the moment on Ebay. I would think nothing of transferring the parts across from this smaller one to make a very nice ride indeed...
