That is one of the best efforts to sell an otherwise low sex appeal item. Very creative soul.

$25 for a Veloce BB doesn't seem that low. If I were selling a Shimano UN-72 I'd probably ask $20 or something, and that's an equally good BB.

Just don't go riding your Raleigh 26 tpi bottom bracket around Dupont Circle unless you know what you're doing! That's just asking for trouble
