The really strange thing about this is that this derailleur is used, but just a couple of days earlier I bought on eBay a take-off (touted as NOS) Mavic RD of identical design and color for $62. Where were these bidders in that auction? Of course part of the joke is on me, as when I received the "NOS" RD, it had a non-orginal lower pivot bolt. This was in the auction photos, but was very hard to make out, and wasn't mentioned in the description. Maybe the guy who paid $182 has better eyes than me. Of course, he still paid $120 for a pivot bolt (I think BC has them a lot cheaper).

At over $180 for a 1980's derailleur, I do believe it is one for the CR high price page.
