Fred,

I've bought several. None of them local. A 1975 Schwinn Paramount P-10 (out of Phoenix) for $300, 1990 John Howard (Tesch/Baylis) for $200 shipped out of San Diego, a couple of early Ritchey MTBs from San Francisco (picked up and shipped by an I-BOB for me). I'm also aware of some other purchases via that list that were screaming deals (last month a Masi and a Ritchey Super Comp for $40 each -- same seller). I've not had any problems with my transactions.

Some are scams, many are overpriced and most you get sick of seeing every day, but there are a few gems in there.
