8 bucks for shipping is pretty good

Re: Parts Prices Out Of Control !!!

I have noticed that with alot of vintage Japanese bike bits lately. I have a 1980 CM400A and a 77 GS750 and I check out evilbay for NOS parts occasionally for them. Stuff is just getting harder to find and more and more parts are being dropped by the factory which of course drives up prices. I know, thanks, Captain Obvious..

Ebay gets a bad rap. If it wasnt for ebay many of my bikes would still be waiting for odd pieces. I normally find what I want for cheap on there too.

Re: Parts Prices Out Of Control !!!

I rarely make more selling parts than the post does on me shipping them

I appreciate nowadays though the opportunities for work-arounds. everything except oem nos stuff is pretty available and you can almost always find a way to make something work

Thats the truth, i have plenty of things to sell but most arent worth the effort to box and pay shipping. So therefore i sit on alot of parts as i cant bring myself to throw them out.

I've made one good handlebar switch out of two on several occasions just like all of you. That price in original post just floored me. Especially when we get these bikes given to us or pay very little.

Vulkan Stavka - this is the casino, which does not need advertising. It will always work and even in the series. But in fact - this is a great opportunity to catch luck by the tail, where to do it, you ask? - on http://vulkan-stavka-games.com/.

Do not worry, it is absolutely fair and legal. Awesome site with a great win. Do not miss your chance!

I see it every day on all brands.

Offer what you think its worth and move on.

Anybody can ask anything for what they are selling. When they sit on it long enough the price will come down if some fool doesn't pay the original asking price first. Its a crap shoot and knowing when to quit is the secret to gambling.
