    Well now you know there is a much better market for what you make then you thought. You can now adjust your prices accordingly and use HIS eBay listing as proof it is worth what you want.

    Otherwise, well you are the China to his U.S. marketing, lol.

    Two more years, I "retire" from the rat race and start doing fine woodworking for a living. Just gun boxes, jewelry boxes, stuff like that. I have already scoped out Etsy and eBay to get an idea of what I can get for what I know I can make.

    Now you know what kind of person he is......... Don't sell anything to him again..... Period, even if he needs the part to get home....... Let him push it home..

    dave, when you sold him the shovelhead that should have been enough to not sell him the lure
    joking aside I hear these stories a bunch. a nice guy helping someone and the part is immediately resold for profit.

    You guys should work together over a lure design you can bond over:

    This prototype is obviously European but a larger American version should sell well in Cambridge or Cuba.

    Doombuggy could fab boutique artisanal cedar lure boxes to reduce lingering odor.

    Dickheads bug me too-but i've had more grief with car stuff that i've let go cheap only to see sold at a profit. Recently, i've let two big twin hardtails frames go from my stash didn't give them away , but let them go for a fair price (no profit- just a bit less than what they cost me) Result- two happy locals and two completed shovelhead chops on our streets.

    I used to work at a local shop and the shop owner took great pride in this really bitchin' one-off build that he did for a build-off back in the day. I'll keep the names out of this because I don't want this kid getting more flak than he deserves. But that bike was all sorts of crazy cool and pretty well known...chances are you've seen it pop up on Instagram and YouTube at some point, it was all over, got plastered everywhere. It was art and had real soul and passion put into it.
    Anyway this local high schooler would come by after class sometimes and hang around the shop. It was really clear that he wanted to work with us and wanted to do what we did. He would talk about how he couldn't wait to get "a real bike" and had this impulsive desire to build and wrench on things. We all kind of liked him at the time, he rode some cool mopeds and would offer to help us out around the shop, pretty cool. But none of us really knew him that well.

    The shop closed down a bit later and we started liquidating the herd of bikes. When we came to the bike in question, nobody really knew what to do with it. No one had the room for it and none of us really wanted to ride it on the street. We were about to sell it to some tweaker, and then someone had the idea to call up the kid. We gave it to him because we would rather do that than sell it to some floozy who would disrespect it and trash it. Key word: *gave* it to him. Hang on to that...
    At the time we thought it was the perfect solution...it's going to a good home where it will be ridden and appreciated by a good guy.
    He was *stoked*, showed up to take it and was groveling about it, going on and on about how much he always admired the bike and all of us, telling us what an honor it was etc.

    A month later I saw the bike up for sale on Craigslist. He was looking for an ungodly amount of profit for it, and was linking to the old videos and photos saying "it's famous and it's worth ___". The ad was written by a truly skilled shyster. It took a lot for me to not call the guy up or better yet march to his house and pummel him. But he's "just a kid" right...so I let it go. I gotta say though, it really brought me down.

    Disrespect. That's the only word for it. I think about it all the time.
