    Keirin frames on ebay

    Is it just me, or is this a ridiculously lucrative operation for anyone living in Japan? I mean, I plan on living there or at least visiting in the next year, but it looks like frames costing 3-500 dollars there go for like double that on ebay! Supply and demand is a ***** I guess...

    Ebay is an AUCTION!!! It goes to the HIGHEST BIDDER!


    Now if you said craigslist , ok you have some merit. I lived there for years before the craze I made no Ebay or business from it.

    Oh welcome to the forums.

    Haha, I haven't sold any frames on ebay. Yet.

    But yeah, you can definitely make some money. Though there are people on the auction sites here that must be making bank, too. I don't know where they get their frames, but it seems like some of these guys are listing 2 or 3 a week.
