i recently bought one off Ebay for $2522.

The big downer over here is that you have to pay a hefty import tax bill. Her Majesty's customs are now very hot on getting their cut and almost nothing slips through the net. Also this one has been to Steve Potts for a refinish and disc mount which will add almost $1k to the bill (then add shipping to and from the US). All adds up far too quickly.

That said I had a choice a year or so back; spend a fortune on a carbon 'me too' frame or spend the same fortune on a rare, handmade frame that will see another 10 years of service when the carbon will be religated to the back of the garage in favour of todays next big thing. Guess which I went for:

Haha - just noticed this thread - I remember noticing the frame on ebay straight away! I'm SO glad it was WAAAY too big for me otherwise I'd have been either a) tearing my hair out b) robbing a bank or c) selling my grandma.

I think the price was reasonable to be fair and would probably have found a way to pay for it had it been in my size :wink:
