No one wants that. No one wanted it 5 years ago when I first saw it for sale at that price, no one wants it now.

Hahaha the dude is asking $15k for the frame and won't include a fucking seat binder bolt.

Edit - I just clicked the "make offer" button and typed in $200.

i really hope when futura was approached to do that he was just like 'fuck it i'ma punk these assholes so hard' and spent literally 20 minutes cooking up that polka dot bullshit. then split with cash in hand.

no, he spent 30 seconds ripping off damien hirst, then split with the cash in hand.

edit: not that damien hirst isn't a prick who deserves it. also pro's closet is a service, not a seller, so they aren't the JA party here, the owner is.

a shitload of it is from USA Cycling which is local to them and I assume they're bros from way back / ex-employees or something

a whole bunch is straight consignment, and some is def. closeouts from people they know in industry clearing out random old stuff

 
the bigger stuff tends to go for real money but if you're pro-shaped it's a really fucking good place to buy high end lycra kits for a pittance

But it's too good to be true. Check out the feedback though...

All of the feedback is for kitschy antique junk. I can't help but wonder if the dude/lady has been hacked.

I also never ever trust anyone who offers a buy it now, but only if you do it on a non ebay site.

That shit was like $200 on Seattle Craigslist last week. Tarckee's friend bought it to flip, because I was too slow on the draw.

More of an acquaintance. He is internet famous for being ok. Not 100% certain, but it's gotta be him.

Good dude, strong rider, builds rad wheels, etc...
