    While the psychology behind a low opening bid with a reserve will be argued until the end of time, to a serious buyer I don't see why it matters. Bid what you think it's worth. If you're below the reserve you haven't lost anything. If you're above the reserve, the current price will be whatever the reserve was so if no one else bids you got it for less than you thought it was worth. If you get outbid someone else wanted it more than you. (and that low opening bid? Look how many people it got interested/bidding in the auction...)

    The problem comes in when maroons who don't understand proxy bidding start bumping up losing bids by $5 each time until they have the high bid, which is the reason sniping software is popular. But now I'm ranting.

    Does have a reserve though, so the opening bid is meaningless.
    When I started my reply the one i"m quoting was the last post, it refreshed after my post to show all the posts explaining how bidding works. I always snipe bid, my bid comes in with 5 seconds to go. I either win it or not, but I never get suckered into overbidding.

    Hmmm...this '91 CBR250RR just became legal to import, and this site says they will handle the transaction and ship it.

    That is one sweet 250...
    Why was the rebel Honda's main 250cc bike over here for so long?
    Does our government insist on only letting us have things that suck as beginner bikes?

    The quick answer is that that's the level of 250cc sophistication Americans are willing to pay for. Frankly, Japan and other countries wouldn't have so many cool 250cc bikes if it were not for tiered licensing.

    Careful with that. The 25 years is calculated from date of manufacture, not model year. So if the '91 whatever was built in August and you try to import it in April you might have issues. At least that's what I found when I looked into importing a 1991 851 from Canada.
