This bike was on sale during the last year (I'll try to dig up the link if no one can find it). From the photographs and the description it appeared to never have been ridden. That leads me to believe that HvK was more of a Lambo collector than a cyclist. It even makes me wonder if he even paid for the bike or if it was presented to him by the company as a token of appreciation; sort of like the Colnago that was given to the pope in 1979:
