Something weird happened to my eBay auction- eBay cancelled the auction after it ended, apparently becuase one of the bidder's accounts was hijacked. Here's what they told me:

Dear velostuf ( <mailto:jb@velostuf.com> jb@velostuf.com), The results of the following listing(s) have been cancelled due to bidding activity that took place without the account owner's authorization: 160211973564 1963 Bianchi Specialissima Full Campagnolo We have cancelled the listing(s) to maintain the integrity of the eBay site, your account, and the bidder?s account that was accessed. We are working to restore the bidding account to its rightful owner, and we are working with the account owner to prevent any additional unauthorized activity. Since the account owner did not initiate these bids, all fees resulting from the listings in question will be credited to your account within 7 days. If you do not see the credits posted to your account after 7 days, please feel free to contact us through ?Contact Us? in our Help section. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to automatically relist these items for you. Instead, to relist these items you will need to start from the beginning of the listing process, either through the "Sell Your Item" process or through your third party listing service. We know that this is an inconvenience and we apologize for the negative impact it may cause you. We are working on tools to allow you to relist your items without starting from the beginning, but they are not available at this time. Do not respond to this email, as your reply will not be received. If there are issues that have not been addressed by this message, you can contact us by clicking the "Help" link located at the top of most eBay pages and selecting "Contact Us" from the menu on the left hand side of the page. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Regards, eBay Trust & Safety

I'm pretty frustrated with the whole thing. If any CR member is the winner of the relisted auction (160213793432) I'll ship it for free (additional for insurance if desired).
