E Bay Gripe

I just don't get some of these Ebay sellers.  They'll have a shrink wrapped part from the 1980s from Drag Specialties or Gary Bang or CCI or Midwest or Dixie.  They have the part listed as a BEST OFFER Listing.  The Price is $22.50 or BEST OFFER.  Shipping is $7.75.  I'll Offer $18.00 or maybe even $15.00 - trying to keep it around $20 bucks for the whole business.  The seller will deny my offer . . . and offer $21.50 or 21.00????  They came down a $1.50 ???

Well "F" You on that.... Why even have the BEST OFFER ?  You can tell the seller is a supply house for everything from ash trays to diapers to scrub brushes.  They bought a storage locker or a bankruptcy.  What the hell?  The same situation happens with shop closeouts, guys that buy all this crap and try to sell it for H-D Retail.  They don't realize how much stuff I buy, or what a great potential customer I could have been - 'Cause now you're on my shit list !  Now you get Zilch !  I'll never offer you any money for your crap again - and half the time I have to fix rust, damage, got the wrong part (so I just eat it) - and I would have been a great customer. 

I was actually buying from a guy who had lots of "decent prices" and was accepting my offers.  I wsa hitting the Buy-It-Now on most items, and offers on others.  I bought probably $1000+ of merchandise from him. - but now I suspect he's got someone running his deal for him (his wife, an employee, etc) who's a dork - so now no more from them either. 

Somebody is going to get a really good customer soon as a find a seller with parts I need . . . and who accepts reasonable offers on their parts.

Support The 4th Annual War Run


Words and photos by Panhead Jim

Back again this year is the best one-day chopper event on the East Coast, the War Run. The day will start with a chopper run that leaves from Carolina Coast Harley-Davidson of Wilmington, NC, at 10:30 AM. From there, we'll ride out to Jacksonville, NC, to visit the Beirut Memorial, which was built to honor the 241 American peacekeepers killed in the Beirut barracks bombing in 1983. After leaving the memorial, we'll cruise down to Surf City, NC, to hit the beach before rolling down the coast to the Skate Barn in Hampstead, NC, for the main event.

We'll reach the Skate Barn around 1:00, and there will be Carolina BBQ waiting for us on the grill when we pull in. Don't worry, if you don't like slow-cooked pork BBQ, there is a McDonalds and a pizza joint just around the corner so no one should go hungry. The Skate Barn has some killer ramps too, so don't forget to bring your board. At 2:00 PM, the mini-bike track will open for a one-hour practice session to give everyone a chance to do some laps on the new track. This year's track is dirt, but some sandpits might trip you up if you don't have the right tires....

The races will start promptly at 3:00 and will continue all afternoon. The event will begin with five bike heats, each of which will be five laps long. The top two bikes in each heat will move forward. The main event will be a ten lap race with cash prizes awarded to the top three finishers. Participants must be riding a mini-bike powered by a 4-stroke motor with a pull start. The entry fee is $10 per bike, and all the entry fees will go towards the cash prizes for the winners.

Free tent camping is available on the grounds of the Skate Barn on Saturday night, which means you can spend the night reliving all your victories on the track with your fellow racers.


You don't have long to get your mini-bike prepped, so run down to Harbor Freight and grab a new Predator motor so you'll be race-ready by the 18th! Follow @war_run4 on Instagram to keep up with all the latest news on the event.

See you there,
Panhead Jim
