    Good Grief! Anyone see this?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Simplex...item20c009f8ef

    Why on earth was the price so high? Seems pretty ridiculous to me...

    Gee whiz, why didn't you point that out sooner? The auction has ended and now I'll just have to find another one.

    High, High, High........ and I don't mean the price.

    There was another thread on this recently, but I am too drunk to find it.

    The other thread is on the regular C&V page. It's a 'value' question, but not (I don't think) one where anyone here was asking seriously.

    If a member here is interested in components at that price...hey there buddy! I have a swell delrin Simplex derailleur that'd knock your socks off! Hardly any cracks in it!

    a delrin Simplex in NOS condition will probably fetch a price like that someday, but not today.
