Big guy Atlanta

No connection to the seller, and I cannot, unfortunately, be the buyer. i'm a sucker for yellow bikes.

I've asked the seller to list the serial number.

The seatpost and bars look suspect to me.

You mean suspect from a safety standpoint?

As it happens this is my size (assuming the top tube isn't as oddly short as the seller claims), but the yellow and black isn't for me (in this case it looks ugly enough that I'd have the bike painted), and since I just bought this watch I think I need to refrain from expensive toys for a while.

Serial number is CAS 61 2161. I've asked Serotta James for information. Generally speaking from information that I've gathered, a 'C' in the first group of digits in a Serotta serial number means 'custom'. It is a 61CM bike. I've known of only a couple of custom Atlantas as they were usually stock geos and measurements.

The carbon bars and seatpost do look well used and maybe a little sketchy

I have a custom Atlanta. In addition to having a serial number starting with a C, it has a sticker that says "custom" across the "Atlanta" logo.

I believe that serial number would be a pretty late model Atlanta. I have had several that had serial numbers ranging from the 1200s to the 2100s.

Yes. Seatpost: C4 (Cracked Campy Chorus Crap, from a prior Cracked Campy Chorus Ti experience, I'm rather unlikely trust the carbon version!!!). Bars: Could be just dust, but why worry? Just swap 'em out.

I like the look of that watch. Enjoy it!

FYI, I e-mailed the seller of this bike, and the top tube is in fact 59 cm.

It's got a pretty steep seat tube angle for a big bike: 73.5*.
