In terms of vintage velo obsessions and eBay.
I've had about a half dozen eBay sales to Thailand in the past year, including one that just ended tonight. That's more sales to Thailand than to Japan. Always for quality vintage parts that don't go cheap, often French. Always to bidders with a history of buying *nice* stuff (stuff I'd love to buy myself... and sometimes way out of my own price range). Always paid promptly. No complaints. Does Thailand have a burgeoning vintage bike obsession that I've been unaware of?
