I didnt want to post this 'til after auction close- just in case someone on this board was bidding, but these HAVE to be the highest amount paid for a set of forks....

Back in 2004 I saw an NOS straight JMC post sell on eBay for $750.00. In fact, it might even be the one I have on the complete DY I bought since the seller said the post was NOS when installed.

It is a JMC though so i guess it does make some sense....

No, not the most expensive ever.

In Feb-08, a similar post beat it by $1

Also, in Dec-07 an SST post went for $621.99

I keep track of all this on my site:

Go to:
- Old School
- Bike Shop
- eBay Price Records
