Default 53cm Slim Chance

Hi Fatcogs Community,

Would like to offer my 1991 Slim for sale. I purchased the Slim in '93 from a colleague at the bike shop in Baltimore where I used to work. He had it built for himself and only used it sparingly. I rode it once and then decided the top tube was too long, exacerbated by the long stem. As such it has been sitting in a warm, dry room since then...essentially untouched for 19 years.

Here are the specific details:
Serial Number: 020Z01
Seat Tube: 53cm center BB to center of TT
Tope Tube: 54cm center of ST to center of HT
GP Wilson dropouts
Color: bright blue
- Dura Ace front derailleur
- 105 rear derailleur
- Dura Ace 7 speed freewheel
- Dura Ace Hubs
- Dura Ace SIS shifters
- Campagnolo headset (may be C Record, can't tell)
- Dura Ace crankset
- Look 50.1 pedals
- Sakae bars/stem
- Dura Ace brakes
- Dura Ace brake levers
- Sella Italia titanium saddle
- Mavic tubular rims (decals gone, but think this is the case)

Few issues I want to mention in the spirit of transparency and so that no one thinks the Slim is a "garage queen"
- chipped paint near dropouts
- some chips on chain stays
- paint chip and small dent at F derailleur band owing to poor installation

Have added a bunch of pics on a Flickr account, link below.

I'd like to get $1250 or best offer. Bike is located in Manhattan. Local pick-up is preferred but can also be shipped for whatever the local shop charges. Thanks for your interest - any questions feel free to email me at RS38@me.com.

Email sent... thanks.

...somehow, I don't know how, I want to influence a trend toward just riding... just riding like kids ride, but as adults.

That's really really nice. I'd be all over it if it were my size.
