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.
