Default Ebay is sometimes awesome...

I've been scouting ebay lately for used AN lines and if you're patient you can score a line you need for cheap$$$$.

I present you with one example (of many).

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMRS-PRO-GOL...b7fdae&vxp=mtr

Lots of BM crimped fittings in good shape used.

A lot of people underestimate ebay and automatically judge as it **** place to buy car goods if youre someone who is a cheap ricer teenage flyboy. As this is somewhat true, there are many deals to be had with good/decent quality products for good prices, so long as you search hard enough. Cool find from the looks of it.

Yeah, those were the days, when people actually auctioned things on an auction site.

That said, I did just "Buy it now" a carb kit for a quad yesterday. Couldn't find one anywhere else and the local motorcycle dealer, after having mine on order for two weeks, said that it would be backordered another month.

I complain about this exact statement all the time. Every time I think i'm going to search ebay for something, I get frustrated and quit. Every stupid search turns up 50000 results from the same 2 vendors selling the same 3 items. And its some stupid ricer POS part.

I do kind of miss the eBay of the mid to late 90s. I used to use it quite a a bit, both as a buyer and a seller. At the time, the idea of using it as a flea market hadn't really caught on.
