(I'll keep this short as it's a little bit off-topic). I'm not so certain those bids were accidental 'clearing bids'. I think that the 2003 all-metal chorus grouppo is becoming a 'classic' (together with the record hubs, discontinued in 2007), and the chorus ergo levers are becoming getting difficult to find, and often sell for more than 2008 carbon chorus or even record levers.

It could be that the bidders simply had deep pockets and were getting frustrated having lost in a few previous auctions.
