No no, that's just the "bicycle hoist" price. You need to select the bike (black and red) from the drop down select menu. It's $240 ($222 with current "discount").

I think this one is even better - it is a "road" bike and the front brake is on the correct side (forks are not reversed) and the stem points to the back to give a nice short reach.

This is terrifying, these people are making bikes without the faintest idea about how a bike actually works. If the basics are that wrong it doesn't bode well for the complex bits

No, I missed both by a few bucks. But it didn't matter as I was only after a few parts then was going to sell what I didn't need for a minor profit. Nothing like this bloke is though!

I think this one is the other half of the bike Familyguy liked in the Lake Goldsmith thread.

It then went to fBay and was sold three times to a buyer with 0 purchase history here,
here and here.

It's back up on fBay again with it's location as Quzhou which is quite a long way to travel from Southbank :)

Looks like still trying to scam it on fBay

And it's back up on GTree with a different story
I'm moving overseas selling up my possessions.
This is an extremely rare 1950s Malvern Star Track Bike . Best ride you will ever get.
I paid $1200 for it but I'm open to all offers.

Now I've seen it all. Nearly $3000 for a "raliegh" and that's just the start of it.

Pfft, he can ask for $2900, doesn't mean he'll get $2900.

Bargain indeed! I’ve seen that seller before, usually has rare and quality bikes - with prices to match.

There's so much ignorance there it's outright offensive. $3250 for a frame which has clearly had a nasty front end shunt :evil:

This is bad for everyone if the prices of bikes goes up. Just don't pay it.

The market will decide what they are worth. That’s the thing about Ebay, he who has the most cash wins.

We need to cast our gaze further if we are to pick up bargains. This was drawn to my attention yesterday.
Don't limit yourself to the Bicycles filter category, look on Gumtree in the 'Other Antiques, Art & Collectables' and you can pick up a bargain

Except it invites bottom feeders who have no interest what so ever in cycling and who are just in the market to make a buck on "vintage" things. Just add "vintage" and slap on a $3000 price tag.
