My Buy-It-Now priced bicycles are shown at the ACTUAL SELLING PRICE that you can buy it right now for and you don't have to offer against anyone else unlike this year at COPAKE sale THAT WILL BE TOTALLY ONLINE due to the recent health concerns. I CAN and WILL answer in-depth detailed questions about my bicycles with experience from my years of collecting antique bicycles and being a Wheelmen member for decades so YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING as I AM THE SELLER and NOT A THIRD PARTY armed with only the information the consignee(seller) has furnished for what is posted in an sale description. For YOU AS A BUYER, WHY PAY FOR INFLATED BUYER'S PREMIUMS ON TOP OF YOUR offer PRICE SUBMISSION for someone to sell you a bicycle? Remember THE SELLER ALSO HAS TO PAY THE sale HOUSE for selling their bicycle at sale. Obviously all bicycles, etc sold at sale, in consideration of health safety, will have to be shipped during these times and I DON'T CHARGE YOU FOR THE BREAK DOWN OF THE BICYCLE or EVEN FURTHER BREAKDOWN if required by buyer to ship it cheaper via it being in a smaller box AND I DON'T CHARGE YOU FOR BICYCLE BOXING AND I USE ACTUAL CARDBOARD BICYCLE BOXES. If a wooden crate has to be built, I can do this and I only additionally charge for my actual costs of the plywood and screws to build it and there is NO LABOR OR HANDLING CHARGE FROM ME. I have shipped many antique bicycles world wide for years placing them carefully in actual cardboard bicycle boxes. padding them and know how to pack them. You won't get a box with the handle bars sticking out of a hole in the box or loss of loose irreplaceable parts that have fallen out during shipment as I pack and affix everything together within the box so it is in one mass of packaging. I can also get insurance coverage from my shipper but this will have to be an additional charge to my buyer. I have a 100% track record for getting the best shipping rate and packing correctly and can furnish references from my buyers over the years concerning this.
