$533 for a complete Hei Hei shipped?!? Sort of seems too good to be true, no? Not my size or I might have risked it already. Parts are a bit of a dogs breakfast, but certainly worth more than $533.

Nice wheels as well. Good feedback and paypal protection. Why worry?

Maybe I'm just overvaluing Hei Hei's because I spent a lot on mine, but doesn't $533 shipped seem extraordinarily low for a ti Kona Hei Hei (with XTR bits, CK wheels, a ti fork, etc.)? But yeah, the seller has good feedback and whatnot.

Don't get me wrong, if it was my size, I would've hit BIN already. But buying it just to split it doesn't seem like a great use of my time with a dozen other projects going on.

that's definitely a bargain given the XTR kit and CK wheelset. never seen a solid head badge like that, instead of decal. cool!

The fork looks like a titanium Black Sheep, which are pretty expensive. I have a feeling that the seller was selling for somebody else and it may have been stolen.

Something about those decals makes me raise an eyebrow. Some of the kit is debatable but it appears to be one of the last Hei Hei's.

Was the sale somehow related to this site, going by the sellers name....?

Depends on size, location and originality (less period correct). The market is anyones guess right now.
