outrageous ebay finds #1
I remember a thread something like this on the old site, and if there is one here on this site, Mods, please move me over there. But I did a search and did not find anything here.
Call it what you will: most outrageous prices, most outrageous mis-identifications, everything short of devin's "block this seller" thread.
Here we go; most outrageous re-purposing of a non-original fender:


I suppose we could go with most outrageous price as well...

Definitely Bad-azz, man.

Those almost look like something you might be able to find in a Home Depot Electrical department . . .

IF it isn't one thing, it's another.

Solid 18kt gold.

But this is precisely what I'm talking about. These are certainly more valid than the front fender I cited, though.

I have seen some outrageous prices, but some I've come to find out the seller was out of stock and didn't want to delete the add. They heightened the price until it was back in stock, i.e. throttle for $12,000.
But yeah some are truly ridiculous.

I saw a st of Works Performance shocks on eBay yesterday for $1,900. Nothing really special about them.

Question authority, think for yourself!

I need one of these 68 DT1 fuel tank stays if anyone has one. It doesn't need to be pretty, just functional.

It's better to remain silent and be considered a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
