Tried selling a 87 Repco High Sierra MTB a few weeks ago for what I paid with little to no interest.. Paid $140ish dollars and had it shipped from NSW to Melbourne. Full Deore in good ridable condition but guess have to hold onto it for another few years..

I can't believe the amount of bids on it, 8 days out!


Thats nuts......
I saw a malvern star mustang dragster in 8/10 condition go for $240 on sunday night...chalk and cheese.


Have a look, seller has a description up now and the bids are going nuts. It's got to be an inside job.

He's being way optimistic with his pricing isn't he.

+1, it's in pretty good shape, but i'm not seeing $500.

$300 is twice what it's worth, he should have jumped at it....

300 may have been a bit high in the offer but if the frame was in my size I'd still want it. You know what its like when things get sentimental...I think he's relying on that with someone out there and just patiently waiting.

I assume you are referring to an ebay item leighthebee. If so, you might want to check the item number & edit your post - when I search for that item number I dont get galli crit groupset. Instead I get something that is (1) not bicycle related, (2) NSFW & (3) not appropriate for these forums

Probably. I just don't get water-testing via the Dutch auction direction. :lol: Only caught my eye as am doing up a 54cm. at the moment; same colour combo. Nice (enough) bike, but not a pig-in-poke $400 one. :|
They must catch one now and again, I guess.
