The key is not to bid until the auction is about to end......I use ebay and that still baffles me why people seem to drive the price of things up when there are days left till the auction ends.

I have searched through the web everywhere and have yet to find anything remotely close to it.

Does anyone here have one?

Thank you.

There were 2 different companies that put them out. Road Champs put one out in 1996 and so did Old Navy. The Road Champs one is in a blister pack with Road Champs Hot Cycles on it. The Old Navy one is also a blister pack with the Old Navy logo on it along with Collectible Cruisers on it also.I am assuming it was also distributed in 1996 since it is the same color s the Road Champs one. Both are the 1996 Teal/Blue color scheme. They both are 1/43 scale models. They look identical just different packaging. They are hard to come by as many of you may not have seen them around on Ebay or such.

Any ways....just letting you all know THEY DO exist!!

No, the key is to use the Max Bid option. You figure out how much you are going to pay for an item, and that's it. You bid that amount with the Max Bid, and if it doesn't go that high, great. If it goes higher, then it's too expensive, anyway.

Max bid might work for some, I still find it easier to "snipe" it away at the last second. I like the element of surprise. That's when I use the Max bid, not days ahead of time. Then if their max is higher than what I put in for a bid, I wasn't meant to have it.
