So this is a first for me. I sold a bike on Ebay (an early 70's Mercian Pro). I felt I had described it well and included all the pictures Ebay would allow me and tried to picture every "defect". I did describe the bike as "highly original" which it is - the frame is completely original, the seat post, stem, bars, brakes, crankset, derailleurs are all original to the best of my knowledge. I pointed out that the brake lever hoods were not original and the pedals were not original. Anyway seller receives bike and everything is fine but... The spokes on the front and rear wheels don't match. The rears are probably original, the front spokes (and I believe the rim) are most likely not although the rim is certainly period correct. Buyer wants some kind of consideration and I will give him some but man I guess I have to now start describing things at a much lower level of detail than I thought.
