Judging from the pictures and other information you've provided, it looks like a 1968 Baccigalupi. Extremely rare, and worth thousands, but it could be a Modigliani, which is even rarer, and worth somewhere in the tens of thousands.

With all the information the OP provided, I'm pretty sure it's a Nopunctuatio.

I'm pretty sure it's an Ullbay Apcray. It's the ultimate shop-nipping frame.

Jack Frost is the ultimate nose-nipping frame.

I really have no idea who it really is, but I just don't get why people think posting this kind of fake nonsense is funny.

Cue OP pretending he/she doesn't know what I'm talking about.

Yes. Posts #5 and 21 are the tells. Last major outbreak was two/three years ago, iirc. @indyfabz will recall.

That's it; no more from me. Pointing out the obvious in this context is frowned on by our moderators.

Dude, on the supposition that you're for real, you gave us no information about the bike. Without at least some pictures we can't tell you anything. Be nice, read and respond to some threads, and when you get past 10 posts, feel free to post some pics so we can help you.

OK, we can help but need a bit more information to narrow it down. How many wheels does it hold? Also, we need a precise chemical and/or metallurgical analysis of the frame material. Assay the selenium content and we'll take it from there.
