Yeah he really picked that Moto Grand Record. He offered thirty bucks and the uninformed people took it. I stopped watching after that episode. Getting an insane deal is great at a flea market or thrift store, but when you start to roll cameras it's a little insulting to the uninformed owners of said picked items. Kind of puts a bad taste in my mouth about the whole concept.,,,,BD
