One can't helped but feel a bit used & abused after all that is over....

This was an interesting thread, just to watch what happens when someone outs a classic bike that is advertised without a set price for it. The owner got what he wanted--a valuation. While it is nice to see how this played out, in effect it was a demonstration of just why the list rule of having a set price is so important. In this case, it wasn't the owner who violated a rule, so you can't chastise him. But, in the end, it was the list members who got to watch the "troll" as the bait continued to be tossed at us, discussed on and off list, then to watch the owner quietly reel in his lure, ref the motor, and speed away.
