Market forces as a cure for CBAD

Despite a compelling financial, logistical and commonsense objections, I made an unsuccessful effort to acquire this WB Hurlow on ebay this morning.

This one is a late'70s racing frame (no mudguard eyelets) with similar seatstay treatment and lug cutouts to my Roy Thame.

The components, which look to be original, include a rare first generation Campagnolo Super Record rear derailler and fluted 2-bolt seatpost.

I have a 1977 Super Record rear derailleur the same as that one in really good shape that came on an otherwise dilapidated TI Raleigh 531 a friend gave me...just saying is all...

Lovely bike, by the way.
