I have, he won't, and he wouldn't offer bikes to the list. Trust me. For him it's all about the $$ He has alienated the local vintage crowd. I won't say any more. I have already broken my vow to speak no evil.

Maybe we should invite the Sultan and others like him to join the CR list. He could offer his bikes whole to the group. His benefit would be no Ebay fees, no dismantling and cleaning the components and trustworthy buyers. Our benefit would be obvious: no more dismemberment of classic bikes. If he thought that Pog frame was only worth $350.00 he probably would've offered the whole bike for $1000 or so. I'm sure many would jump on an early 1970's Pog with original components for that price. If he had no takers he could hack it up and throw the frame and bits on Ebay. I almost pulled the trigger on the BIN myself but it violated my most sacred collecting rule, it wasn't my size. BTW, Charles is right. $350 for an early Pog! That's a steal. I couldn't believe it lasted as long as it did
