Seller needs to remove a zero from the end of that price to be in the ballpark.

Last 5 Sprees I bought:
$140
$200
$100
$250
$75

I want to see the sucker that paid $1000 for a "special edition" frame.

They should use Scientific Notation for the price. Sounds better...

$3.6 x 10^3

If you think $3,000+ is expensive for a 50cc moped, you should check out the prices of Yamaha FS1E Fizzys on ebay.co.uk

A recent sale went for over $6,000!

It's not the amount, it's the bike. I'm sure there are ex-race Honda 50cc bikes with pedigree that have sold for more. But this is a Spree... that isn't even 100% functional... selling for 10X going rate in most of the US. And the ad's ludicrous... there is no "special edition" frame, they're all the same, all grey. While this bike as a SE model is probably worth a bit more... it doesn't amount to the asking price.

He wants to see a $3000 Spree, I'll be happy to show him one and the receipts to prove it. Even still, your talking about body, paint, mechanical work, dyno testing, performance parts, rare parts, etc just to get there. The bike itself, I only paid $75 for.
