Maybe Ken just wants a bargain like the rest of us. But the very fact Ken is bidding means this is a top quality bike. I don't ever remember Ken buying any midrange bikes.

With four days to go the bike has received 6 bids with the high bidder being Ken Denny at $661, $214 from the Buy It Now price.

Now, the question is, why wouldn't Ken Denny (FLM [Former List Member] and generally acknowledged to be The World's Foremost Expert On All Things Vintage Lightweight Bike) _not_ be spending an additional $214 to insure the bike would be his and his alone???

Is his opinion, like mine, that this bike is overpriced at the the Buy It Now price of $875?

Based on the above I think you'll all have to agree that the answer is in the affirmative. I rest my case ;)
