Happy happy HAPPY!

I thought i got a good deal on those squat racks a couple of weeks ago but i've just topped it.

Some guy was selling a pair of olympic bars on ebay. They look well worn but i thought i recognised the ends of the bars as belonging to a decent quality bar.

I emailed him and he said they were stamped with WANKO (I think he miss read it) and i scooped them up for just over $200 Aus for the pair!

Out here Ivanko bars cost $750 each an assuming they still work OK i think i've just gotten the deal of the year!

Now to get them down from the middle of nowhere.

Andrew I may just take you up on that in order to pay for the bumpers!

I'm investigating some Ivanko bumpers from Nz but i've got to triple check with the guy because the price just seems too good for them to be the real deal.

Yeah but the last two have been rare examples, most of the stuff on there is junk.

Good deal!

Someone on Craigslist (SF Bay Area) is selling a BFS bumper plate rack for $40.

If I hadn't just built a plate rack, I would snap the BFS one up, Ted.

Lots of interesting stuff on CraigsList--but no concept II rowers. Bummer.

Great pickup Don. Im a bit weary of e-bay these days. I haven't used it myself, but my dad has an account so i just got him to buy stuff for me and ild pay him back. He had a couple dodgy deals where he payed for stuff and still hasn't recieved it (going on 12months). And other problems and issues i won't go into! But lets just say, he doesn't use e-bay anymore!
