Allow me to relate what I think is kind of an interesting story.

I bought a 3Rensho with 1st Gen C-Record at a good price, then sold it to a rather well known (in some circles) eccentric collector. I got cash and a large collection of Campagnolo components. About a year later, he emailed me asking if I wanted to buy it back at a really fair price. Had it been my preferred size, I would have done so, but I passed. A few weeks later, it was on eBay for $2500. I got a laugh out of it as he said it had been professionally prepared. He had not done a thing to it, I could see where I had botched the bar wrap. Anyway it disappeared. Several months later, I got a note from a BF member saying he had my old 3Rensho frame. I figure someone bought the bike for the C-Record and flipped the frame.
