    Ebay listing help

    I just put one of my spring cleanings up on Ebay but I never determined the year and therefore manufacturing specifics. It's a steel Basso Coral with a pretty loud color scheme, equipped with a Campy mix: Mirage, Veloce and an Athena BB. Also a Dura Ace headset so I'm not sure how much it was tinkered with after purchase before I got my mitts on it. If anyone can shed some more light than what I have in my description I'd like to be as accurate as possible.

    I don't know, but I want it

    I actually put it on my watch list about 30 minutes after you listed it.

    I took a look at the eBay listing. You really should post more and bigger pictures on eBay, where it counts, rather than posting huge ones here, which are very annoying, because we have to scroll all the messages in the thread back and forth to read them. It really looks like a nice frame, but people on eBay would never know it.

    Host your ebay pictures on Photobucket and you won't have to pay ebay for doing it.

    Well, I did have a link to a photo album on there but I guess you're right - I've added the pics to the auction.

    I'll have to disagree with you though - I don't mind a little scrolling, personally, if it means pretty pictures of bikes. I only think it's a problem when the picture is then posted again in a response quote. Also I thought someone might want to take a look at the bike in question right here on BF instead of heading over to Ebay.

    Still no info on this Basso. Not vintage enough guys? C'mon, someone's ridden an older Coral before.

    Thanks for trying East Hill.
