I've written the winner asking him to tell me what makes those jockey wheels special or rare. In the meantime, I will have to assume that Robert Broderick has uncovered a money laundering scheme operating withing the confines of the Vintage Parts category on eBay :) The most expensive jockey wheel price I'd seen till now was $200-$300 for a pair of used 9 tooth Campy's. I counted twice, and these are not 9 tooth wheels. So I'm going with money laundering.

I started sweating profusely when I realized I had bid '74,850.00 USD' instead of '74.85 USD' as I intended. Fortunately I could retract my bid in time. I didn't like th e sweating though!
