    Found on ebay 10 days ago a listing for 2 caster forks with 2 wheels/tires on them plus a few misc parts off of a Toro commercial walk behind. I was the only bidder both times he listed it and I bid up to $35 but was below his reserve. I email him after the auction ends and ask him what he will take for the 2 wheels/tires and 2 caster forks. He replies he will take $35 plus shipping for """just the 2 wheels/tires""" and will list the caster forks seperately on craigslist tonight. I know these parts new from Toro are not cheap but I can get aftermarket cheaper. I'm the only one interested and this guy is being a dork for his USED parts. What gives?

    It's a question of how bad he needs the money vs. how bad you need the parts.
    That's how I price things, supply and demand, take it or leave it.
