Fork seals pricey

At first this seemed like a good deal, but now it seems pricey.... pay the extra for good stuff?

I once inquired on a listing that would normally cost about 30.00, they had it at 300-400. Their replay was they were out of stock and were not sure when they would get more. It was easier to jack up the price knowing no one would bid/buy it than it would be to remove the listing and then have to post it back up. It worked on me!

On some of those I think they're trying to catch you off guard; offer the item at a great price, but have shipping set at $100 or something ridiculous.

That used to be a way to circumvent ePay fees. Then they caught on and started basing fees on price and shipping combined.

So, the seals are FREE SHIPPING.... maybe a bargain, if you need them delivered to Mars.
