    Isnt this a little over the top? (ebay prices)

    I'm a miyata fan, and I like to keep track of the miyatas on ebay and craigslist, just for fun. So I was watching this auction of the miyata track frame that just ended. it was around $380 for awhile with the reserve not met, and then at the last minute, some guy shot the bid up to $699 (which met the reserve).

    now, I don't know a lot about track frames, and maybe I'm just clueless as to the current market (inflated i would imagine), but isn't that a little on the crazy side? or am I just missing the boat here?




    here is the link to the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

    I suppose the thought of going the wrong way into the peleton gets people really excited...

    That isnt a common model of miyata... thats the real racing stuff... i mean i think its overpriced too but thats good stuff... I had a miyata that never got to the US, I think it was sold only in japan and in Chile... all shimano dura-ace stock... even had tubulars... so it really do not surprise me that it was bid at that price...

    Anybody wants my tesch track frame? heheh

    thanks...
