Havent noticed him doing that, although he did have them listed together. He broke them apart within 2 days of the listing. No bids at that point. Now theyre seperate I predict $600 plus for the fork

Anyone paying 600 dollars for a fat city fork is doing wrong. When you can have Igleheart, who built at FC, build you a better fork w/ the same design and legacy for less money?
it's just perverse and stupid.
It will end locked in a garage so that someone masturbates to it everyweek.

..well said

I would never spend that much money for such a fork but for many people the originality is much value!

Question: this fork is threadless, do you think this an original YO fork or a cut down threaded one from a larger bike?

I have a BOI that is threadless, but it was a custom created for a 94 wicked

I've bought from the seller in past. No monkey business on his part as far as I can tell from my experience.

Bids and retractions could be buyers trying to figure out where the current high bidders proxy bid max is set. I had a bidder try that with me once on a set of Bilsteins for my old Porsche. One bidder rapidly placed several bids up to my max bid and then retracted them quickly. I set a much higher max when I noticed that. Came to the end of the auction and they tried to snipe me, not realizing I had raised my max.
