Can't see any of the stuff in your picture separately listed on ebay, just some old books and Bond bits and it's 19.10 in the evening.

Oh, so you've paid the extra 6p per item to be listed at the same time? I did 30 once, but made up the ads over the week before. I now wait for the free listing weekends for anything over 99p.
Are those rear lights at the top of picture genuine Wipac?

Could have a punt then. Thanks.

Just been having 2 days fun giving away some of my 200 piggy banks. Left them on a table at the top of the drive with a notice, "FREE. Take a piggy bank home today. PLEASE."
 
Great fun watching the antics of the people taking them without being noticed. Got about 140 to go over the week. Snort, Snort. Oinck, Oinck.  ;D

Yep, forgot to attach the link ;)

I have light switch, starter button, kill switch, but I will add more for when I fit the Villiers engine.

Not quite a mods scooter ;) It does have a mirror though! One of my friends wanted to work on the mower when he was over, not finding any small jobs he could easily do I picked m,y schmitts mirror (the one that I was going to change anyway!) and he put it on. All I can see in it is my leg, but who cares!

We have a load of ebay stuff to list, we just havent gone around to list them!

Ebay listing does take up a lot of time. What with that and the fees I wonder if it is really worth it for cheapo stuff and unknown items. Most of Richards stuff should come up to snuff so it will be worth while. I have probably 50 misc bits of niff naff like scooter cables, gasket sets etc. Do I feel lucky? Time was you would save this stuff up for an autojumble and bang it out for a few quid a throw. Trouble is that potential £100 in achieved sales is the cost of attending the autojumble now. The guy I was wholesaling boxes of this sort of stuff too has stopped jumbling now as he is not making much money any more. Yet I am reluctant to chuck it out, which is, economically, what I should do. Now my foot has gone off again, the reward for climbing ladders to get stuff stored on a mezzinane floor down, I might have time and boredom drive me into action. Then again sat in the sun is good as with several Bank Holidays coming I assume it will start raining again.

Thanks for taking the listing and my bid off ebay for the Wipac rear lights without letting me know, Richard. Very businesslike I must say. Or is there another reason?

hi rob extremely sorry i had no idea who the bidder was - you cant tell . john meadows contacted me yesterday to advise me that ithey possibly werent the correct one for Frisky . we exchanged messages . after confirmation that they were not , although they look the same they dont take the right bulbs.
i withdrew them at 7.30 this morning having had johns  confirmation overnight . what else could i do but await the message from the irate bidder !!  i will be reposting them as 6volt motorcycle lights - which i now believe correct .
as far as i know there is no way for a seller to contact a bidder to explain such a thing - but there is a way for a bidder to ask questions of a seller . i am of course extremely sorry and offer humble apologies but all was meant to be entirely straight and above board  :(
