It probably has more to do with ebay having a free listing day for fixed price auctions. Sometimes when they do a free listing day I put up lots of items and fill in the details later

Yes, he seems to have moved into the big league from his general fixed gear conversion offerings. I especially like his description in the Herse listing:

"photos & description to follow if I get around to it."

I guess he isn't in a huge rush to sell it (via eBay). Certainly adds new meaning to the buying "sight unseen" phenomenon. Also intriguing that it is a fixed buy it now auction. That more or less takes competitive bidding out of the picture. I suppose that he could be trolling for off-eBay offers to dodge eBay's fees.
