Re: Gee I wonder who this is...

700$ for shipping seems a bit high.

Re: Gee I wonder who this is...

no guessing....he bought that bike a while ago. Its a great bike, someone should buy the bike complete to save him from parting it out....which he doesn't want to do!

Between ebay/paypal fees they extract almost 200.00 from ones wallet on a 1295 sale.
They don't tack fees on for shipping so I guess the mystery seller decided to do what so many others are doing and price the item low and price the shipping high to avoid being sodomized by the grim rapers at ebay & paypal?

Actually they do charge fees on TOTAL price now, including shipping. They started this over a year ago to prevent those people listing things for .01 and $500 shipping.

Sorry to break the bad news..... but I agree, their fees are ridiculous.

Re: Gee I wonder who this is...

That was my final clue...

I've dealt with SRADIATOR before, he's not the cheapest, but his stuff is legit. Wish I was closer to NY. I'd save that 700 for shipping

I was sure someone was going to pick it up when SRAD posted that original thread. Surely there is someone over there who wants a perfect, unmolested Srad.

The cuts they take must be pretty severe, seeing as I hear people talking about it a lot. Trademe in NZ recently bumped up their fees too, hope it doesn't go the same way as eBay

Lol, I think it's more like 15%

If you count Uncle Sam then yes, it's about 35%
