Default OMFG - $952 for a fork?!

A NOS Big One Inch fork would be great, but at $952?! Yikes.

That's a lot of crude oil, Lagunacoupe.

that's stupid. as long as wickeds stay out of the yo eddy cult BS i am happy... the main vibe of vintage bike collecting is understated, personal value. once it becomes a comodity i am out.

That is pure insanity and completely not worth it. I mean they are nice forks but not that nice.... Even If I were a multimillionaire I wouldn't buy that fork for that kind of money.

Ditto to what Fat-Tony says. I'm mainly surprised about it. To get to this price there needs to be at least two people that want something a lot. In the grand scheme, $900 isn't that much if the fork means a lot to you. More than I'd pay though

Folks pay that and more for the latest suspension/squishy forks that require more maintenance, repair, and eventual replacement.

At least the BOI should be functional for an owners lifetime...whether admired on a garage queen or ridden hard in the woods.

To each his own...

Thanks Rody for noticing that extreme price. there are positives and negatives to Lagunacpe paying s[FONT='Times New Roman']tratospheric[/FONT] prices.

Positives:

1. the value of our bikes in "ebay dollars" is continuing a upward trend.

2. i can justify a Fat purchase to the wife since people like Lagunacpe are willing to pay the ultra high prices.

3. in keeping with the wife and ebay dollars theme. the Buckshaver i just bought has a Big One Inch - with the sale of that fork - my new bike has just quintupled in value.

Negatives:

1. this guy is gobbling up at the Fat stuff. several of the last big purchases were buy lagunacpe. i feel that the market may be cornered?

my 2 cents,

And it's not just Fats--he (she?) is paying top dollar for Ibis memorabilia, too.
