I sold a low end Asian Bianchi for $50. Guy who bought it drove 2 hours one way to get it. A week later I saw it on his C/L for $500. Then on eBay for $500.

it slowly dropped in price but at around $200 it disappeared so I think he sold it.

I buy and sell a lot of stuff, not just bikes. No doubt people have bought from me and then flipped the item for more money. Sold two sets of pedals on eBay recently to the same buyer, used but in great shape. Buyer has been selling NOS versions of the same pedals for 5X. I’m kind of waiting for the ones I sold to reappear as NOS. So be it. I sold them for what I paid for the entire bike. So I am good. If he makes a lot more food for him.
