I just got my chrome switch housings in the mail. I bought them on ebay for 35.00, guess how much local dealer was, 123.00. These are brand new in the package, and yes they are aftermarket.

I got mine from Sorgy's for about $50 shipped. Now I need a master cylinder, clutch lever housing, levers, and the rest of the braided cables.

I both buy and sell on ebay.You have to know what you are looking at and it's value,or you can pay to much for something that wont work for you.
When I was doing the turbo ford thing,I would often buy things I had no use for myself just to resale.
There are deals to be had,and money to be made there,if you know what you are doing.

I've gotten some really good deals on ebay. 'course I've been had a time or two. The trick is to check the feedback rating and read the negatives.

I have bought about 15 different items on ebay for my Iron during the last 2 months. Great deals. I found an original air cleaner, original headers and heat shields including the crossover, original decals, etc etc. Best swap meet anywhere!

Yup Ebay is great and I but and sell on there. Before the Euro got so strong I used to buy a lot from Ebay Germany and got better deals since there were not near as many people looking at the auctions.


I have been a member there since 1999!!!
