Amazing 1975 Colnago Molteni Craigslist Posting Mar 23, 2010

Oh Craigslist, how I love thee. Check out the listing for this 1975 Colnago in Seattle. So funny. Gorgeous bike. Let’s hope this one doesn’t go to Nigeria as well.

Here’s the seller’s price breakdown:

Ok enough ranting. I hope this is detailed enough for everyone.
One of you needs to buy this one.
Prices are as follows:

If you are an investment banker – $10K.
Just because Dow is over 10K now old boy, and all is so hunky dory and because it would look great next to the gorilla hand ashtray that your father left you as a memento of his first million.

If you’re a Google, Microsoft or Amazon Yuppie $5K.
Just because all your stocks are going higher every day and because you’d look fabulous on it while you’re going to Freemont to sip your $9 Belgian beer. What, it’s not really $9? Well, you’re in the wrong place, look harder.

If you’re a BMW frat boy: 3K. If you had one of these all those hot punk and goth chicks on the Ave that look through you would actually look at you. It’s magic. Some of them might even talk to you so to I’ll throw in two six word phrases that do not contain the words ‘dude’ and ‘cool’ more than 2 times.

All others, $1350.

    Saw this last night and was very intrigued. Hilarious read to the ad, and a really nice looking bike, but alas it is too small…

  • peter

  • prolly

    Hi there. Yesterday – Someone stole my partner Nate’s bike in Madison, WI. It’s a Colnago Duall Ergal that he pulled out of the trash around 20 years ago and restored with great love. Bare aluminum with two small diameter down tubes. Late 80’s rare Colnago. Single speed. There are very few of them in existence around here.

    The frame looks like this:

    If you see it around those parts, please report it to our UW Madison police. (608) 264-2677

    Thank you
