Overpriced Used Parts

#1 Post by ns86 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:55 pm

Just another example of flaky Ebay sellers. Used RG500 R/V Valve cover from Greece. $66.00CDN. Made an offer and told the vender I can buy NOS for $55CDN. His response was he prices items according to what others are charging on Ebay so I should buy a new one. Stupid Logic? Sorry but I will continue to buy brand new parts for less than used. Always check first with the dealer, in Canada a lot of it is still available, just order it!

Ebay used to be the reference when you wanted to know the value of your items for sale but not anymore , there's so much bid shilling from commercial sellers
that it's now almost impossible to price something .

I have sold a few of these at around £100 each, nothing silly about the price. No one makes new ones.

The price is silly. I have sold a few as well, but not at extortionist prices.

It's a useless bracket that is for aesthetics only and isn't needed. Seriously; like the top is going to blow off the coolant bottle or the rad cap is going to magically fly off.

Buyers set prices. As long as moronic buyers are willing to pay 100 GBP for a useless bracket or 250 GBP for a mud guard the silliness will continue.

Just because some idiot pays 112 GBP for it doesn't make them all worth 112 GBP.

Don't be so harsh on Mukeido. He had a YZF750SP engine for sale. Yes a SP complete engine. A year before that I had the opportunity to buy a complete YZF750SP, but it had the YZF750R engine. Its a shame that both items were not around at the same time. The SP engine sold for $650.00

That is true George. It is buyers that determine prices, not sellers.

I've been watching his prices for a long time. He doesn't have eyelids.
