Look, theres no problem with buying a complete bike for peanuts and selling the parts for more than the bike cost you. You're spending you're time, using your tools etc to split the bike up, clean it and make multiple trips to the post office etc, I don't have a problem with that.
But as someone has said...
we are all friends aren't we?
Yeah, we are, in a funny 'not met most of you' way. Would you go to a pub and buy a pint for a friend for Â£2.80, and then tell him that you want Â£7.40 for it?
I'm not trying to stir up ill-feeling, I'm just taking a shot across the bows of those here that try to piggyback the success of this forum for their own financial gain rather than a love of the sport/bikes etc, after all "...this forum is a group of retro bike enthusiasts and freinds who buy, sell and trade at prices they think fair", well it should be anyway
I make no apologies for starting a thread about something I'm passionate about or for speaking out instead of letting it slide without comment. There are some users here who would take the asking price at face value and not expect to be ripped off here and if I've helped them in raising this issue, then I'm a happy rider!
