Subject: [CR]Spotting another ebay trend

I have seen this for the last few weeks and it is getting more and more prominent. I see a nice classic bike go up on auction from a seller without any feedback, a number in their name and the bike starts at $1 with a private auction. Now I know that ebay allow you to do this to target to a customer but it seems that now it is growing more common to where large lots of bikes are being dumped on ebay this way. Case in point...


I know these particular bikes are out of time line but it happens to classic bikes on a smaller but regular scale. Check out the recent 72 Paramount for sale and you will see the similarities. Just trying to keep everyone alert to a strange looking set of circumstances with bikes.
