    That is a fairly rare Fatboy (I think it was only made one year), but that's just insane. I wonder who'll buy it.

    The seller also will also have to pay about 5 years of ebay listing fees, so he'll net about half the asking price which is in the ballpark for a decent bottom dial.

    Grand daddy said a fool and his money are soon parted. I believe that fits the item listed here. I never paid over 18.00 for any of my razors so far.

    It's a pre-production Fatboy 195 with bottom dial. Very rare, yes. Worth $995, YMMV.

    Just think, this originally sold for $1.95.

    Why don't we take up a collection, buy it, then rotate it amongst the buyers. That way we don't have to look at the tired listing another day!

    I actually had to put this on my e-bay watch list just to see if someone buys it.

    Unless the seller has a stock of these, he's been trying to sell the same razor for months.
