    look at his 'quality rating': "Rating 1-10 = 7.5"

    that's a solid C for a cylinder that looks like it was removed with a sledgehammer… and what happened around the deck surface??!?!

    at least it's less than $20 to receive it in the mail then be forced to buy another...

    Guys, you need to use these to your advantage....I show these auctions / CL adds to my wife. Always helps my case. She'll look at it and tell you can buy more stuff.

    Cjpayne, that is now a new favorite photo of a Z50. On closer inspection I couldn't stop laughing....a classic...worth the price of admission.

    From a cynical perspective, these listings make sense. Think in terms of a book, titled "Selling Garbage for fun & Profit...or Turning Shit to Gold". Seems that there's always a bidder for nearly anything and I do mean anything. Such sellers probably laugh their asses off when someone actually bites, to them it's free money.

    Technically, the seller isn't really misrepresenting the items. The photos are clearly revealing. Hate to spell this out but, how stupid does someone have to be to bid on such turds?

    I don't think it's an original off of a '76model either. On the inside, it looks like it was originally gold or topaz orange.

    From the same moron, junkboy66. what bothers me (other than utah residency) is that he's dismantled more ct's than i've owned, and probably made a pretty penny doing it. He might overprice all of his ct70 stuff, but he does sell lots of used parts to people all over the country.

    Sad state of affairs the old motorcycle world has become.

    There's never a shortage of overpriced "trash" on ebay. Ive been checking out asking prices on H frames, as I may be selling one myself. Mines way nicer than any I've seen and I would have the audacity to ask some of these prices. Some of these guys are hitting the doob a little too hard.

    Yeah but it WAS $109 lol.

    I dunno I clean my spare parts if I sell them, but usually I hang onto a lot of the parts I might need later. People just dont care to do shit like that tho and people STILL buy it.

    Yeah, that's pretty bad. $49.99 plus $6.99 shipping. It's not even in mint condition.
