There is one of these BB's (that Chuck refers to in his email below) listed on ebay right now. See the link below. Yes, I'm related to the seller, it's me. I've justed listed a bunch of things that I had no real idea of there value so stuck a price on them and placed them on ebay. My pricing guess's are apparently not to accurate as I've not had a single bid on any of my items! If you want to check some of my other items, my ebay name is "tr4play" and I have listed a nice Peugeot frame and handle bar/stem set, Campagnolo late caliper set, Campagnolo NR rear caliper with a Campy drop bolt and a set of Campagnolo SR BB cups.
