Good luck on the sale GP!
Wondering if you considered BaT?
Seems like might be better place for sellers of quality classic bikes.

Yep, I created a login, took a look around and decided it wasn't worth the $99 fee.

I also edited my e-bay listing to allow a $500 refund for anyone who collects the bike in person.

I think that puts the price right where it ought to be for a bike this nice, maybe even on the low side.

I have used ebay but not BaT, so no real experience with them. But the BaT biz model appeals to me - ebay makes commission $ off sellers, and BaT off the buyers.
Assume less scammers on BaT too.

Less scammers because bidders need to provide a valid credit card.

BaT requires the SELLERS to pay $100, zero fees to buyers.

From BaT site:
  • Sellers pay a $99 listing fee, with the option to add our Plus photo service for an additional $250. There are no other seller fees on BaT.
  • Buyers pay a 5% fee on top of the final sale price to BaT, with a minimum of $250, and capped at $5,000.
Also it looks like they don't take just anything.

Hmmmmmm.... when I was reading the listing regs, I thought I read that the fees were all in the seller's listing; must've mis-read it or missed it altogether.

I think my bike is clean enough to make their cut (5% well over $250), but I don't like that THEY do the write-up. "No thanx".
