Why

Why do people always chime in when someone has some thing for sale and etc. with you can get it cheaper Yada Yada Yada. If he wants 3 prices more that's his business, if someone is willing to pay it, that's his business. I've got stuff I wanna sell, so I'm going to the swap meet. Think before you speak, maybe I should have on this but, Damn.

Maybe because they want it and can't afford it

I ignore those...do my own research and if I feel I can get it cheaper I will make an offer.

I have been beating this to death on other forums in the past. If a guy has an item for sale and it is priced high IYO, send them a PM and let them decide if they want to change the price to what "you" think it should be. Simple common courtesy IMO.. Don't blow up their ad with a bunch of back & forth pricing advice.

Only thing I ever said anything about was a guy had side covers from arlin ness used and wanted $300 so I posted a pic of them brand new for $179. Tracey corrected me for not being allowed to do so.

Good luck selling your items.
If some one complain or like to negotiate the price at the swap meet will you pack and leave...
Haven't seen negative post on sale threads, only can relay my experience. Posted items some sold others not but is a free.
Am sure if eBay allow comments on active selling items people will chime in also. Check how many items go zero bids...latter delisted at lower price and bingo it's gone.
Nothing personal, just saying.
This is a great forum lots of good info.
Take one leave one.

Again, if you would read, it's the guy that has nothing to do with the sale or the buy. At a swap meet you deal with the buyer if you are the seller. If it can be purchased cheaper from another seller go there. Read the post!

It comes down to a lack of research on the sellers part because the buyer is doing their research.
If the seller inflates the price to above the new price, new or almost new price than a little corrective criticism should be welcome.
Most of the forum members already get a 20% or more discount on new HD and aftermarket P&A so a seller should take this in consideration when they are trying to sell a used P&A.

^^^ This. Who cares about where you can get it cheaper??? Blah, blah, blah. If someone has something that you don't want, stay off the thread. Polite comments that bump an item up are always welcome. This issue gets on my nerves as well. Good post.
