    A NOS 1975 Viner Professional on eBay

    OMG--someone posted this on the CR newsletter & I thought I would share.

    This eBay auction is for an original NOS 1975 Viner Professional Special Course and it is a thing of beauty. 59cm--so just my size--too bad we are still broke!

    (In Germany and $150 shipped to the US...)

    Back in the early '80's, Bikecology (before it became Supergo) stocked Viner framesets along with Bob Jacksons. Didn't know much about them but they were beautiful. Wound up with the Jackson both because I was intrigued with 753 and I had some BSC Dura Ace AX parts that went into the build.

    Right now, I'm glad that frame is a wee bit too big for me.
    Anyone who believes there are no stupid questions never worked in a bike shop.

    Was that bike tucked away in a air tight bubble for all these years? Very nice, but I need lots of chrome to get excited.

    Where the hell do these things hide? I'm flabbergasted complete NOS bikes like this pop up.

    Sold for $1200--seems like quite a bargain for that bike in that condition....

    $1200 does seem like a steal. The mention of Bikecology reminds me that I paid them $700 for my Masi GC back in 76 - silk tires and shipping to CT included.
