EBAY = Tell me this isn't insane
Seems a little crazy to me, but ebay is full of overly optimistic sellers.
Check this one out:
All Wheel Drive Christini Mountain Bike Last Production Unit | eBay
2013 Santa Cruz TRc 650b
2015 Lynskey Cooper CX
2010 Soma Groove
1987 Haro RS1
^20k and it doesn't even have hydro brakes? Pass...

You only have to sell one of them.
But it does have a kickstand and extra long presta stems
For 7 G's I'll sell them to you, along with my Edge ... I'll even through in some gold valve stem caps

That seller comes up a lot when discussing pricey vintage equipment.....but $7k is nothing......try $24k - Vintage 1991 Gary Fisher Procaliber Mountain Bike 20" Bicycle Suntour XC Comp | eBay
I'm guessing typo (added one too many "9's"). But still overzealous at that price.
I've heard people will post things out of price range - just for post count - to get a multiple item discount on sellers fees.

As of this posting, that Christini that ljsmith posted the link to is showing 33 offers. I would love to know how much he got offered for it.
I kind of watch machine tools on e-bay and see the same type of stuff. Insane prices on some stuff, and some of it is really junk. There is one seller who lists machine tools and parts that always has crazy high prices on everything he lists. I can't figure out the angle on it, but they must come out somehow.
Maybe there really isn't an angle to it at all. If you sell something that overpriced once in every 1000 listings you probably come out pretty good. There is a sucker born every minute you know.
I'm not very smart, but I can lift heavy things
eBay has been great to me- started back in 1999. My best sale was a .99 cent no reserve auction for an item that should have fetched ~$500. Went for $1295.00. I gave the guy free shipping

Damn, I'm a lot richer then I think as I look in my basement and see a bunch of old crap!
I've had a lot of luck with eBay and got some great deals but there are some idiots out there....

It always baffles me as to what the VRC crowd fawns over. Things I think were cool back in the day don't get a second look. Stuff I thought was nice but nothing special is selling for major bucks.
Hey. That stuff is sweet! I like my 7/8 speed bikes. Although, I have to admit I make money selling shiny cnc stuff overseas.

I dare someone to ask the seller if the chicks come with the bike, and when they say 'no' accuse them of false advertising and gouging.

Twinkies were selling for Millions $$$ not too long ago.
Well the sellers were asking for millions, but I don't think they had any takers.
I like to hug trees at FULL SPEED!
Contrary to popular belief, twinkies DO have a shelf life. I dont remember exactly how long, but it is shorter than those single serve cutie pies. Maybe a month or two. The shelf life can be extended by a year if you freeze them, though home freezers most likely will badly burn them after a few months. They need a deep freezer if you want to get that extra year out of them.
