Ok not mine but at this price could be a viable option for someone, it doesn't say the model and the seller seems a bit like a pr***k but maybe just because of translation.

I know it's a ways away...shipping isn't too bad.

Worse case it needs a rebuild, so factor price with shipping + rebuild and or re-spring if you wind up spending $400 total seems like still a decent deal.

Or I could be totally out to lunch in this...

By the look of the reservoir/compression adjuster, it's an 8981 or 8983.
This is a two-way (low speed compression & rebound) shock.

New, the 8983 goes for around $850. The 8987 three-way (Hi/Lo compression & rebound) goes for around $1200 new.

Seems I'm always scouring for a good deal, especially on Fleabay.

When I spotted this I was thinking of you Duck, good luck I hope you win it...I got this odd feeling you will.

Some one is trying to get it away from me, fair game....I'm still in. I have a feeling another member here is after it as well.

Then just chill and wait till near the end. Don't get into a bidding competition, it'll just drive the price up.
I know you know that. :eek:

Use a sniper site, I've used them a couple times and won the item.
But then, Ebays *max bid* works pretty good too, to find out what other bidders max may be.

Yup take JD's advice, have a limit.

I sent you a pm Duck, so if it doesn't work out this time we have a system. I have my ear to the ground also like I said in the pm.

I am not to worried about it, If I do not get it that is. It is not an Ohlin's rear which is what I want. Christmas is right around the corner and I am a family guy so have to watch my "excess spending" LOL, Just seemed like a a good chance at something good at cheap price.
I am not gonna pay a high price for it.
Thanks for your honesty and good luck wish on it though.

Don't worry Duck...good things happen to good honest people. If you don't get the Penske something better will come along.

Got my ear to the ground and feelers out there. Oh snap! I forgot I got one other guy to pm local guy I seem to recall he was thinking about parting out his track bike. I will pm him and let you know.
