You have no idea what you're talking about ----
Getting Richard Sachs to say that he thinks this is a legit auction is worth more than a seller's response to the question of its provenance. And because he did comment on it, the woman has a far better likelihood of getting what this piece of art is actually worth; I think I did her a service.
If you look at the auction questions. That question below is from me ---- does she sound offended? Do you see my condolences about her loss? Q: I thought you should know I also had concerns about the authenticity of this auction, and posted the question on a cycling forum and Mr. Richard Sachs himself commented that he thought this was legit and not some sort of scam. http://forum.slowtwitch.com/...orum_view_collapsed;
Thought you should know...and sorry to hear of your loss.
A: Thank you so much. All interested parties see link below!!!.
I did not submit the question on the auction which says do not buy the frame this is a scam.
I never asked why she is selling the frame --- but seeing as this is a $3000+ frame and it's being sold by a person with ZERO feedback that usually
is cause for alarm. I posted the link on Slowtwitch because I did have concerns of the authenticity and there is a high likelihood that it might have been a stolen frame of which someone could have recovered. However, that is not the case for this auction.
You have 80 posts over the last two years ---- maybe you should stay a lurker...
i'd like to thank this thread for sending so many visitors not only to my site but to the auction as well atmo. as a result, the traffic has near doubled the high bid since i first saw this 5-6 days ago. koos died tragically as a result of a car versus man incident some 8 years ago and his widow has slowly been cleaning house.
it pains me to see so much vitriol and misinformation aimed at her while this auction was live. shame on anyone who had condescending opinions about her or this frame without knowing the back-story, especially when it is delivered by folks who hide behind a screen name.
lastly, i have had a login here since 2004 and at a loss to understand why one's (low) post numbers have any relation to the efficacy of what he posts.
