That's interesting. I do think this is a bit misleading. Is he saying the brakes in the picture of the auction were not the actual. Are they the same model or style or type? Just seems strange with the comment "I hate to sell these unique brakes for
> $61." If you don't want to sell them that cheap, jack up the minumum bid. why post them then? just strange. But please remember that in some rare form, everything is a no-no to the ebay folks unless they are making a fast few cents on every million or so items that are out there for sale.

I received the following (somwhat edited to protect the guilty) from the seller of an item for which I was not the high bidder. Isn't this unethical, as well as a no-no per eBay?
