I've been selling off a few bits and pieces via ebay that I know will never be put on a bike.
I'm in Wales and the last couple of months I've sold a wheel hub to a bloke in San Francisco, a pair of brake levers to someone in Seattle, a matching purple Crudcatcher and light set to Sweden, and I've had someone from Moscow who tried to get me to sell him a retro bike frame and wheel set (I said no because posting to Russia was a bit too complicated). I've also bought a pair of shifter/levers from someone in Germany.
Someone on this site from Texas also wanted to buy a Peugeot road bike.
The world is certainly getting smaller due to the internet.
