    Is this bike for real?

    Try as I might, I just can't spot any Campy parts on this bike. http://cgi.ebay.com/The-trademark-is...QQcmdZViewItem Maybe, just maybe, do you think this is a bogus auction.

    The item is located in China which itself is very suspicious. And yes, it has every sign of a bogus auction.

    Obviously, the poster got her/his links messed up. Somewhere there's probably a junker ad with photos of a Campy 10 setup.

    I couldn't help but ask the seller a question.

    Hello,
    I am very interested in the bike for sale. Could you clarify which components are Campagnolo and which part of the frame is Bianchi? Both are highly respected companies.
    Thank you,
    Stephen

    Well if the latest neg feedback on the sellers account isn't a good enough warning, I don't know what is.

    It was for a custom Full Front Lace Remy Hair Wig! What could possibly have gone wrong?

    I've GOT to get me a set of of those "Look Feet Step" components. Thanks for posting, it has lightened up what was turning into a very bad day at work.

    And did anyone notice the one high bidder has the same kind of random letter/number combo as the seller?
    Maybe they are friends.
    AND, if I'm not mistaken, the seller is the same one who sold me a Windcheetah recumbent trike for 99 CENTS buy it now! (never DID pay for it )

    And most of the existing feedback is from accounts with similar account names and no feedback of their own. Interesting scheme to get a high feedback score, at least for a while...

    Did you also notice that shippint will take 35-45 days, but they will gladly refund (minus shipping) if the item is returned within 30 days?

    With over 30 days for shipping they should have the opportunity to bilk many people before being shut down... and even then receive very little negative feedback... isn't the feedback period less than the shipping time?

    Here is the auction from the current high bidder's single feedback score.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=130024256319
    It looks like a sharp pair of Guess sunglasses.

    Just got an eMail from SafeHarbor that they will look into it in the next 24 hours.
    I've set my timer!
    So if you can't find the item after tomorrow, they must have believed me.

    The auction ended, so someone bought it, apparently from the UK.

    The grand total with shipping was about $93 U.S.D. I suspect dea952 sold it to one of his associates.

    Probably himself!

    And the auction ended 3 days early! It was originally slated to end on the 21st!
