Some people really do not do their research when selling.
Would really love to post my real opinion but reckon it would be heavily sensored.

What does everyone else think of that price on Ebay?

I suppose there is the fact it may have been made in the UK, butted tubing, Reynolds 531ST but even so.

Don't knock the seller, it might actually go for that price. There are a lot of sheep mentality idiots on eBay - and I've done quite well out of them over the years ;)

If he gave a full equipment spec, started it at £50 and was prepared to pack and ship it, he might well get £500 for it. £720 - my guess is probably not.
 
Its ended and he declined the highest offer of £580.00, which is a bit silly. The bike looks little used and very original, but that horrible multi-tone paint colour would put me off. I suspect they've looked at the new price (£1150) and based it on that, rather than on what they can be bought for new.

A couple of months ago, I saw a second hybrid (can't remember what) for £100 more than the brand new price! I messaged the seller with a link and he replied with thanks, saying that he didn't know.
