Probably not, many of hers are "Common old Celeste" not RARE FERRARI RED (are there any other shades of red?) - and of course many of hers have all Campagnolo kit, not the special Sun Race components - but maybe her Auntie trained four Le Tour De France on one?

A 2003 mountain bike with cantilever brakes and a steel quill stem? Yeah, right. He needs to move the decimal one place to the left and date it a decade earlier.

I'm pretty sure that seller is a C/V poster who put that up for laughs.

The paint job looks almost like an attempt to fake a 1999 Iguana.

It's a money laundering scheme.

If those auctions are a joke they're an expensive one. With the impressive listing fees those inflated opening prices will generate he might eventually break even... if someone ever buys something.

Auctions like this is what eBay's free listing sales produce. Everytime they have a free listing period stuff like this pops up.

Oh, are they doing that again? That makes better sense. I didn't know because I haven't gotten four thousand spam emails from 'em about how I should sell my old junk/internal organs/family members. Someone's dropping the ball - I still have my appendix and I'm sure someone out there wants it.

All of his items listed are crazy high. There is not one bid on any of his 36 items.
