Maybe it's me. But it looks like the bars are down flat and the "back sweep" of the bars look to be coming up toward the lens of the camera. If this is not the case I stand corrected or need a better pic!

You're probably right. It's hard to tell.

yeah, I mean... of course I'm no fan of exact reproductions, but more to the point, I've never felt comfortable taking the presumptuous position toward the original product maker, of telling them not to re-do what they came up with in the first place.

 

I guess this strikes me as relatively low impact since there are so few factory plates out there, and the condition of these will be a tell, and I can't figure out if he is hand signing them or what, but I don't think there is a big threat of people getting burned by paying OG prices for one of these down the line in a collector context.  I don't know.  I also just want to mention that I don't give a shit about the prices and all... I get it strikes people as high. But even on the freestyle bike that didn't happen... I had no problem with that, and in fact thought it was cool he didn't make an exact replica of an old bike.  But maybe that was more about not being able to legally since the brand had sold, then not wanting to go down that road at all.  Anyway... yeah, I just stay quiet when the OG person re-issues their own stuff.

I still get shocked... nothing should surprise at this point, but it does.

 

 

edit** So... are they claiming this is dead stock at the link?  In other words, not freshly made?

As I walk back into the final phase of my personal collecting, I know the only pieces/parts that I truly desire to have, must be real. To me, real means original. If you create something new that mimics the original item and appears in the same market place where I am shopping for that original vintage item, please let me know it is not original. To delianate a reproduction from an original takes only a small consideration. Anything less is an inconsiderate obfuscation at the very least and a blatant intent to defraud at best. Repoopers who don’t disclose their wares as copies, are like pedophiles walking the high school halls with our children.

I think the "Continental" (were they called like that back in the days?) was never discontinued. If I remember correctly, the reintroduction of Composite and the International came about via Planet BMX and their Tuff Wheel connection.
