One of my favorite Ebay listings so far. I think you guys know what needs to be done.

Guy freaking out about people "watching" his listing. Not sure if this is where this belongs, but I figured you would all appreciate it.

Uh.... I have no clue what that was all about! What is the motivation for telling people that you are going to raise the price if they look at your bike? I mean, the more watchers you have the higher the odds of a bidding war. What's he bitching about? And then he blocks potential bidders because they ask dumb questions?

Does this guy have a screw loose, or is he a marketing genius that knows tricks that I can't comprehend?

When a person asks you for advice, they don't want advice. They want corroboration.

The bike was a POS when it was new. Now it is a classic POS and you can overpay an arrogant seller for one. Neat.

Reminds me of an old Jerky Boys routine where they/he poses as a car salesman looking for work?

Tactic described in the comedy bit from the Jerky Boys: (in typical New York/New England accent) "You buy this phucking car or I'll break your phucking head..."
