Yep, that's the title.

I claim no great fame as a speller or as a wordsmith but some of the Oz ebay auctions crack me up. I love it.

In any case this auction may interest somebody even if it has no pic, seller has no feedback, may be half way round the world, is for local pickup only and is a 9 hour drive from me ....

In the auction description it only says .....

 Make CLAUD BUTLER, Very good Condition.

$160 AUD and no action .....

I haven't contacted the seller but im sure someone here will do so ...... can you say long shot? BTW, shipping a whole bike outta here is nigh on prohibitive unless you own some kinda cartel, is a rockstar or is on the down low with some shipping moguls. Oz post = 105 cm length x 140 cm girth (20kg max). I suggest 2 boxes and if it's bigger than a 57cm c-c you gonna find it tough.

I'd say one of my local southern brethren could well clean up on this one. Can the winner let us know if it's a pearl?
