So, who here would like to dish out $3000.00 for a derailer? Have any of you seen this yet? I only wish I had the mony to spend on it:D

Oh yeah, I thought it was a mistake or a joke but if you check the past history of the guy who placed the bid, well, he spends that much on small parts.
I put my bid in; now guys, please don't outbid me!
So you guys like my derailleur? :)
John E, didn't know you were the famous Hillary Stone. :D
FYI this derailluer was produced for one year only, is
NOS and is ultra cool.
If you think this is nuts, someone paid 200 bucks
for a box for a Campy Crankset (1st gen record?).
Final selling price was $4210.
not bad for a 43 year old derailleur.
For $4210 do you put it on a bike or frame it?

Weird how the japanese have been putting outrageous bids on old bike bits at Ebay for awhile now. I think there are 2-3 collectors over there with Ebay as a sole source and money is no object.
Remember the 1963 Peugeot PX-10 which sold for over $7K last year on eBay? (Does anyone want a 1980 PKN-10 for half that much?)
Don't recall the PX-10. why so much? NOS?
they seem to go for not much more than a couple
hundred bucks. what was so special about that one?
