Mountin Bike - LOL

I found this looking for some parts today. No, I am not spamming my own auction, hopefully that is obvious seeing as how I can spell words more than half the time. Check this auction out and see how many things you can find wrong with it. For bonus fun, check out his other items for sale including "toy" and "tabel". All items are also photographed in stores. My only guess is that he is taking pictures of items in the store, waiting for them to sell on ebay, and then stealing and shipping them off. This guy seems kinda lazy though, so maybe you send him money and he just sends you nothing. I really hope he doesn't have kids like he says.

Misspellings hurt eBay sellers more than help, mainly because it keeps their items from being listed in keyword searches. There are people out there who deliberately hunt for misspelled items on auction sites, buy them, then turn them around with the proper spelling for cash.

Yep, and I'm assured of his honesty by all three of his previous customers giving feedback.
