Alert readers may recall our previous reportage on skyrocketing sale prices of vintage constructeur bicycles bearing the marque of René HERSE, Alex SINGER and Jo ROUTENS, etc. (https://quarterlybicycle.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/470/)
Today we share a cautionary tale by way of an advert found posted on Craigslist. Is the market softening or is this a fluke?
