If I were the bidder being shilled, I'd wait for the last minute
of the auction and cancel my bids. Either the seller's dad
really pays up, or the seller gets stuck with the closing value
fee and the bike. And what's he going to do, complain that his
shill bidder won because a legit bidder withdrew?
