climbo: "a friend sold you that fork? he should have let you have it $0"
this fork was purchased with another identical fork, two RS Indy forks, and two cannondale coda suspension seatposts, all for $100. they were bought with the intent to use one of each, but all turned out to be the wrong size (too short steerer tubes) or not compatible (seatpost=165# max, J=200# arse).
the answer forks went for $38 and $61, plus shipping. so, that's what they were worth.
total turnaround: $100 invested, $265 returned, $165 profit (eBay fees not withstanding).
goes to show that there's a market for almost anything on eBay. keep your auctions accurate, honest, and to the point, your pictures fair, and your practices respectful of others, and eBay can be a great resource.

|Yup, I once listed a virtually unused 1 1/4 Manitou IV on ebay, expecting to get like $20 for it, and some German retro freak bought it for $75 plus $20 shipping to Europe, because it matched the Manitou FS frame and some pretty old blue ano parts he'd bought.
No accounting for nostalgia!
