You only get the F1 fork - read the auction notes carefully!

just a FYI!

BTW; looks like a good buy for frame/fork. I paid 1250 for my 56 legend (used) with F1 fork with king HS (was Josh's bike - well his wife's bike)

Rides great.

The seat post collar is a separate piece on the Concours, so I expect also on the legend. I don't know what the Serotta one costs, but otherwise it's about a $20 item from Salsa.

FWIW that tube is dented. No it can't be buffed out. It can be hidden with paint via bondo. It's not a terribly deep dent but it is a dent. Will it be a problem? Difficult to say.

I'm unclear. Can you tell me which picture to look at and what you see? Either I'm blind/dumb or my computer doesn't have enough resolution.
Thanks.

The picture of just the downtube shows the small dent. There are two reflected lines and the one on the left shows a dent by the way it curves around it. This bike does not need a collar as it has a binder bolt set up (see upper left or lower right pics).
