Coolest thing on ebay?

Post your idea of the coolest ebay thing. Unless, of course, you plan on bidding and don't want to alert the opposition.
I won't be bidding on these, but they are very cool.

A little smaller overall, and a little more room in the stays for wide tires, and I would be racing this beauty this summer on the AGRS.

Very close, but no cigar.

Yes, that is one very nice bike, eh? With a price to match, but it's probably worth it.

Those are all very cool Scott. I can't afford them either. In fact, I can afford any of this cool stuff. I guess they're too cool for me.

I posted this up for sale, I wish I had a use for it but my wife ain't so much into that happening with only one bathroom in the house and all.
It is pretty cool, someone should own (and use) it.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/310353047948...84.m1438.l2649
The pics on this are killer but $500 is way over the top.
