I've noticed this a lot recently. Its getting very difficult to buy interesting stuff on ebay. Things are usually withdrawn and then presumably sold outside of the auction. I make a point of reporting all of these fake auctions now, it really winds me up; either auction your stuff or don't, but decide one way or another before starting.
Too many road bikes.....
Bikes I am actively looking for - please pm me if selling or if you hear of one:
Hetchins Nulli Secundus 20" or so, please help for my mother whose bike went walkabout. Raleigh Record Ace 20" or so - the post war one one.
