Hello,

My experience with him is that I contacted him by telephone about a special request for Huret Jubilee parts he had offline and he claimed he would search his Huret parts bin and Email me with the complete list with prices ASAP.

His specialty and preference seems to be Schwinn bikes and parts. However, he has bought out the inventory of several local bike shops which is why he is always on ebay.

Lo and behold, the entire "list" never arrived by Email and within several days all the parts we discussed suddenly appeared on Ebay on his account without advance warning to me.

When I Emailed back asking why they went up for auction without Emailing me, he claimed that I need to check his auctions more often and never fully explained why he did not contact me. It turns out the parts were overpriced and did not sell for weeks. He ate the cost of several Ebay ads with "no sale".

I consider him stubborn and quirky.
