If I owe you feedback just let me know. I'm nuts, crazy, scatter brained and just plain forgetful sometimes.

Re: Record high prices on eBay

Very nice reference. Thanks!


I never log off and I had to disable my screen saver because it was causing problems , making me have to restart my computer every time it kicked on. Please keep that in mind if you message me and I don't reply back right away. Thanks.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Re: Record high prices on eBay

I saw some parts that I have that I STILL wouldn't part with for the money they fetched. I can't sell it 'cause you may never get it back.

Re: Record high prices on eBay

i have been a subscriber to martins topic for awhile now, i would love to see a "reverse" topic for e-bay scores ! like buy it nows that are way too cheap for the market (such as a friend that snagged some nos vdc monkey bars in white for a BIN at $75 !) those would give us all some hope and i bet we  would be in shock at what kind of great deals we are missing daily !!

I think in most cases with a hobby for vintage items, it's more money than patience.  How often do some of the higher-end items pop up? hmm

Re: Record high prices on eBay

Having done eBay (buying/selling) for years I noticed 1 thing about the listings shown on the first page,they all (pics) almost "look" like they are from the same seller..(lighting / photo style ...take notes guys wink>>  Awesome link!     I also have to say after dealing with balloon tire bicycles for 10++ years these prices BLOW AWAY any rare pre-war bike parts..I bought a RARE original paint tank for my Elgin for $600 off ebay and and I guess thats a bargin for a rare part made 75 years ago big_smile

Re: Record high prices on eBay

I can afford to buy stuff at these prices. But I still think it's stupid to spend that much money on any old parts.

$800 for grips. Those hutch grips sucked anyway. When we were young if we got a bike with Hutch grips that would be the first thing to go. They were such a hard grip, they were garbage. We would replace them with Mushrooms or Oakelys. Now people just have to get that garbage. Well anyone who actually rides their bike wouldn't want those uncomfortable things.

Some of those Kashimax Aeros for $300 +

I would rather buy a brand new one for $60.00 because they are still making them. It's probably a better grade of plastic than the old one anyway.


I'm just trying to get rid of a bunch of extra stuff now

Re: Record high prices on eBay

The all black series one Haro plate I traded to Jeff.

I pitched it to a few here on PM's and got laughed at for $200, then the legendary JH(who I think is great) list it and all the sudden it's worth $200 plus shipping. lollol

I paid $50 for it off CL.
