I've seen few "benter" without rubbing the DT. Even in the Ebay picture you can see the bend starting right below the crown. Notice the seller says "This bike was built in the days of wheel-pedal overlap-the fork has less rake to give quick steering geometry and short wheelbase, but one has to time his pedal strokes with his turning (see pictures)."

Now I'm not a lawyer, but I can say that if someone bought this I think they would have firm grounds for fraud. It's always interesting to see what people have for sale. So what do people on the list do when they see things like this on there? Do you inform the seller, Ebay, or just snicker and move on? enjoy, Brandon"Monkeylad"Ives
