Just browsing the Evil bay pages again and look what someone would pay for $40 worth of parts! That is if the sites are still good.

That is CrAzY!!

They may not even be worth $40.

Well the ad does state that they are "original", bet they are "rare" too!

What in the wide wide world of sports (as Slim Pickens said in "Blazing Saddles") is the lucky buyer gonna do with that junk??? Unbelieveable. Maybe this sale can go in Ripley's Believe It Or Not...

Several yrs back, I bought 60 lbs of better grade stuff from him for $50. Some rust on cut areas, long pieces with lots of good internals,some bolts good. I guess he is at the bottom of the barrel.

And we all know the buyer... he is probably gonna make up shooters out of it!

It really is nice to see some of this stuff being actually re-used. And with such nice wood on them, too...
