I thinks it's cool. If someone on this forum would have taken a used stock Felt bike from CL and made it look like this one, Everyone here would be praising it. Successful people are easy targets. Also, pricing is a two way street on vintage bikes, no one complains when they flip a $15 yard sale bike for $150! As far as MSRP goes, I couldn't spend that, but maybe I'm not in their target market. There are a lot of cool cars that I can't afford also. Is that their problem or mine?
