What a deal?

I know Vintage NOS Bicycle Parts has already been ragged on and the fact is he can sell his NOS parts for whatever he wants; that's the free market system and caveat emptor. Saying that I saw he was selling a Suntour XC Pro WTB Grease Guard Bottom Bracket for $225.00. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Suntour-...item48427f0591 But if you want all the parts that come in the box, your going to have to pony up another $93.75 for the cranks bolts, washers and dust covers; https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-NOS-Sun...item4846884b57 You just can't make stuff like this up..

what's a deal? buying a beautiful vintage steel bike from me that i've spent 40 plus hours restoring, overhauling every piece of its construction, and only charging what unenlightened craigslist shoppers will finally fork over.

I remember going to a warehouse sale after Suntour went under and buying a half dozen of those BB's for $10/ea I wish I still had all the stuff I bought that day.
