Just to let folks know I ran accross a very honest party on Ebay a few days ago. There was a cycle frame listed on Ebay, but withdrawn before the end of the auction. I wrote the owner as to why the auction was cancelled and he promptly wrote back that he cancelled the auction because there were questions as to the authenticity of the frame.

> from me. The "seller" was asking for $2000 for the second chance offer. These people are scum!!!
