If you believe that story, I have some prime swampland in Louisiana you might be interested in. Even if it were true, someone had some 70's Internationals and Pros NIB he was selling a while back for $1000 or $1100, half of the opening bid here. Regards,

Not enough pictures provided to really judge the true condition, not even a drive-side shot. "Never used" says the copy. Seller has 0 feedback results. We'll just have to watch and see if this goes anywhere. Maybe it will come back in a couple of weeks opening at $600. You be the judge. http://tinyurl.com/5g7gg

Doug Morrell St. Louis, MO ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------- As much as I like Raleighs, I have to agree with your sentiments. The seller is a real newbie and is making some major newbie mistakes, like listing the frame material as Aluminum. cheers- Dave Anderson Cut Bank MT

p.s. If the seller is a list member, I apologize in advance and have an ice pick precariously poised above my right eyeball ready to jam it as penance for my deed of accidentally offending a fellow list member.
