If you haven't seen it or didn't recognize it for what it is:

It's a Basso Monza, made from Max tubing and in this case fillet brazed. It's the first one I've seen since it was introduced in 1988/1989 along with the Ascot. I have one of the latter but this one's too big and I'm not into Max frame sets for my size. The components look decent, ha ha C Record crank, possibly C-Rec front derailleur but Victory rear derailleur, calipers look like Record to me, C-Rec brake levers, seat post and hubs. Shifter levers are either NR or SR. Given what people are paying for Merckx MXL frames, this one's a sleeper. Funky Italia paint job and Basso's are really nice riding bikes.

Profile CX

Yes, I figured it was yours. Despite not being my size, I'm watching it. That is the most pristine Colnago I've ever lusted after. Most of the ones I've seen have been Oval CX's. I don't recall seeing a Profile CX. Glad to see the auction is reflecting the value of that machine.

Too bad you're not getting in that many miles. I'm in Shanghai now and despite the hair-raising riding conditions, I'm still logging the miles. Good luck with the auction. I'll be looking for the Ascot!

The rear der. is a 1st gen C-Record. BTW, have you seen my Colnago for sale?

The Ascot is most likely next on the auction block...
