I don't know, I think Mike Kone's parodies of these auctions a while back still have the prize for funniest auctions. This latest auction almost inspires me to auction a Huret Jubilee rear I got from Mike. I ordered a VG Jubilee from Mike, and either as an honest mistake or a wicked practical joke, I received an incredibly beat one with missing jockey wheels and mangled cage, which he had been offering for $5. When I emailed him about the error, he started his response with "Gee, you should have seen the BAD one". I received my VG, of course, plus he let me keep the beat one free, still don't know if he planned the joke or it just happened, but it was a good laugh. Maybe I should put it on eBay with a caption like "A little rough, but should clean up OK". I also have a pair of cracked AVA bars that would fit into the same caetgory. Anyone have any Lambert forks to auction while we're at it?

Regards,

Jerry Moos
