So value? Is 250-300 out of line? I'm probably going to put these in the classifieds before Ebay. I would love to pass them on to someone on the forum.
If you are talking $250 - $300 for the pair, I don't think it's out of line at all, but having said that, my red lens has been sitting on ebay for over a year with only one or two low-ball offers... The assembly and chrome aren't particularly expensive on ebay. And the lens is rare, but the frequency for someone wanting them is also rare. I would list them as a pair as a 30 day listing with a buy it now or best offer price and expect them to sit for a number of months. But it's OK for them to sit for months, really. And perhaps this thread will reach some forum member who can buy them from you directly and you can cancel your ebay listing. Don't do something like a 7 day auction with a reserve - that will cost you and they won't sell in 7 days...
