eBay only suspends your account for 30 days for shill bidding.

S&M were talking about this frame on their Facebook page, and I should have told them that it only sold because the seller bumped up the price by putting in fake bids, but I didn't want to ruin their party.....

And some comments on there from users of bmx museum even said on that page that the seller is always shill bidding.

Hahahahahahaha. In what universe will this frame be worth $50,000? Do you honestly think someone will pay that for a bicycle frame? It's not even worth $5,000. It only got bid up that high because the guy put in fake bids on it.

You're all assuming that there will even be a market for this shit in 10+ years (doubtful), and that some jerkoff will actually pay $50,000 for this (even more doubtful). How many limited edition '80s BMX frames do you see selling for tens of thousands of dollars today? Zero.

Never underestimate the stupidity of people. Someone will pay that sooner or later.
