before retro websites existed, I'd contact regular ebay retro buyers & got friendly that way. after a while whenever we found something we badly wanted, whoever called 1st dibs could bid. everyone else laid off, also stopped the price going into orbit.
now retro stuff is sooo popular, well it doesnt really work anymore!
What might help is that more pop up lately as part of a NOS batch
Nevertheless it is likely in the very last few seconds a few @ssh0!es will try to oubid me, making the price skyrocket
Think the piece will do great with my Vitus CL1, purple Graftons and meat Psychos, but I realize that with some bad luck the Hammerhead will exceed what I spent on the rest of the bike
