Can anyone explain this ?
Take a look at this Flying Scot (Starts 1 July ends 6 July) Frame No. 137F 54cm
Seller 'Frenchvelos' located in France (AsniÃ¨res sur Oise) - went
from $150 to $300 but failed to meet it's reserve of $345.
bidders were Techno89, nd1862, oldbykeparts and 500 joules. Techno89
was the last bidder at $300.
next this scot ;
The same Item re-listed 7 July and runs to 12 July same seller same everything else except the reserves now $285 bidders this time include ;
Frame sells for $285 (the reserve) to retrosimplex
move on a month to a 7 August auction start date, and lo and behold -
what this ?
The frames moved to Glasgow and being sold as Frame 233E with a reserve of $235 by Oldbykeparts who apparently failed to win it the last time at his max bid of $150... It's currently reached $272 with 20 hours to go with a 0 feedback high bidder. No problem in that, But wait a minute one of the earlier bidders at $247 is retrosimplex - who apparently won it last time round...
Smells fishy to me but there may well be a logical explanation for all this, perhaps I'm missing something here.
