I agree, it's not easy to comprehend what's going on with prices. I've also noticed, and, incidently, paid, higher prices for certain parts, yet, I've heard that 50th Anniversary Group prices have diminished. I wonder what effect the weak dollar and increased shipping costs are having on the sales of bike and bike parts offered by European dealers? Perhaps foreign collectors will now have the upper hand in the American vintage bike market?

\r?\n> Item 270212484214 in case the URL wont wrap right

\r?\n>

\r?\n> $91 for a couple AX cages and a bottle? I'm happy for the

\r?\n> that's where prices are going to stay, my projects will be

\r?\n> I'm really hoping this is just a seasonal thing with everyone

\r?\n> that last part or two, but I have a feeling it's not.

\r?\n> Take a look a this ebay auction that just ended:

\r?\n>

\r?\n> 130198480975

\r?\n>

\r?\n> $1774.95 for what really amounts to a set of no-name Campy

\r?\n> brakes. I know

\r?\n> no-name brakes are rare and expensive, but the last set I saw on

\r?\n> ebay went

\r?\n> for ~$400.00 or so. Has anyone seem these brakes for anything

\r?\n> near this

\r?\n> amount? (I figured the other parts were worth $300 or so...)
