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?
