Default Another crack pot seller on ebay

This has to be seen a ludwig speedking bass drum pedal.
eBay item number:
143214327287
This is the price he wants for the untouched pedal
2,361.90. The seller is in the USA. The heading is ....
1970s Ludwig Speed KIng Bass Drum Pedal Time Capsule
A very amusing price for this pedal. I know speedkings are a good pedal but this has to be a joke.
If you want to see another ridiculous ebay seller selling a bass drum pedal spring assembly in the UK.
eBay item number:
152860824963
Bass Drum Foot Pedal Spring Cam, D-ring ,Spring, Tensioner Assembly
110....Even the pedal it would go on is probably cheaper to buy. These sellers are complete jokers.

Crackpot. Crack, pot might be things a dealer deals and another someone smokes.

Well...I'm not sure how to respond to this one! OK, so it's "brand new in box", but I still don't get it! I could see MAYBE $300, but $3000?!!! Of course, it only takes one buyer who just has to have this in their collection! The seller is free to ask whatever price he/she wants, but I have a hard time believing that anyone is really taking this seriously. Of course, I've been wrong before!

He now has some free advertising on this site, and likely on others as well.

Then let him be warned, That one has the short tap and the batter head get's scratched. I have a short tab SK and the knuckle scrapes the head after a while. I'd pay 3 grand for a long tab that wont. I'd be murdered by the wife and it would never get used.

Be careful people. There are a couple of (self)righteous guys on another thread about a 14x14 floor tom who might call you names for "interfering" with another person's sale. Those guys think that a seller should be able to ask any price without anyone commenting on how ridiculous the asking price may be. So, with this in mind, I wish the sellers of the pedal and the spring assembly a lot of luck. There must be a couple of shnooks out there who will cough up the asking price.
