Why are ENYA 4 stroke engines so expensive on E-Bay?. Crazy money angry 2

Supply and demand.I don't think they're made anymore. They have a reputation for longevity and reliability. Perhaps some people think they're an investment.

Me I'd rather spend less money on a second hand OS or a Laser if I needed one.

Same seller has Bell pepper seeds. Looks like they took them out of a pepper they had for tea!

Bargain.

No he is not. He is just "playing the game".

If he (or she) puts it on auction, he has to accept the highest offer. If he does what he has he will still get offers, but doesn't have to accept the highest one at this time. He then waits a while (for low selling fees) and tries again. This is why we see many ridiculous prices, but with "make offers" attached. Anyone who is seriously interested in the item will make an offer. The high price attracts attention and does its job.

I think they are Pete, half of their other listings don't even remotely match the images.

Sometimes if there is an eBay offer for a very limited time, such as the occasional '£1 total selling fees' one, a seller will put up a random picture and a ridiculously high price. This allows them to edit the listing when they have more time, adding the correct pictures and price whilst still benefiting from the eBay offer. I suspect that is what is going on here.

There's not been a Sell for maximum fee of £1 for months though so it's unlikely to be that...

Really David?

I constantly get them. I guess its because I haven't advertised anything lately and they are trying to tempt me back into the fold!

I have just unpacked my latest purchase. An OK Cub .049. IT came really fast, great communications.The packaging was just about the best that I have seen and the engine looks as if it has never been mounted or run.

I am one really happy buyer!!!

Not completely. I still love engines. I have an idea for use with this AND electric.

A friend told me today that he was selling an OK Cub 29. I would love to buy it just to run it.

Have you ever heard an OK Cub 29? It has the most horrendous high pitched crackle of any engine that I have ever heard. It was painful to listen to.

I had one back in the mid 50s and it was almost unbearable then

Ah yes! Carefully stored in the top of a tree for the last 6 months.

What I really can't understand is that he has used the same pictures at least 4 times. Perhaps he believes that 12 pictures are compulsory

Funny how these people have 100% seller feedback.

Peter, I have an OK cub 049 I run now and then, makes a heck of a racket worse than a Cox 049. A 29 must be nuts. Cheers, John.

I have run hundreds of engines over the years including unsilenced speed engines on tiny props and everything from .010s up to unsilenced 10cc Nordecs.

The only one that I can never forget is the OK Cub 29.
