I find its pretty good form not to be rude at all if they have something that you want :)

agreed. what i meant was, do i call the guy every day, every 2 days...... when does polite enquiry(sp?) become bothersome pest?

The thrill of the hunt... I am slowly collecting parts to build a Dyna Tech Quantum to the spec mine was when it was stolen from me in 1995. Bit by bit it is coming and the fun is finding just the right thing! When the bike is complete it will be awesome to have the bike I miss so much back!

Considering the amount of shiny stuff in ships on the Atlantic I'm surprised there isn't a thread on the shipping forecast. :wink:

Took delivery of my Ultimate yesterday (thanks Brooks) - only 17 years after I first decided to buy one - made full advantage of the wife being away on a hen do by unpacking it in the kitchen with a Chimay in my hand!

Already down at the LBS for a BB before entering the sketch up stage - thinking I might go Campy on this one....

More bits and bobs that must have floated off the Napoli finally turn up...

'97 period NOS Judy DHOs (from Israel??) - no suitable frame to go on yet.... the Manitou 700c's (seized - thanks mate) arrived too, and a good condition Caratti GT race top (which was the first bit of cycling gear I ever bought (to match the Zaskar) - aaah, the memories come flooding back!

spent the whole of xmas waiting for my cross bike to appear from the states, Arrived last week and was built this sat. Definately the thrill of the hunt. Isn't that what all this ebay addiction is pure and simple.

Ebay is like finding hundreds of shiny things cabinets in lbs's all in a row in one town.

we used to call ourselves the Magpies beacuse of our love for shiny things... the best places were in the shiny cabinets in shops such as in Ambleside!
