Earl Brown Racing
« on: November 30 2019, 10:32:50 AM »
I ordered a set of brake hoses from Earl on Ebay.  I noticed that he has a 100% rating.  Between Jimmy Hoffa or whatever name Paulie is using these days, and Ibby?, I would have thought he would have had more like a 99.9%  :icon_lol: :icon_lol: :icon_lol: :rock:

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

So you're the reason I have to get out of my heated bed before 2:30 when my mail chick stops by the house.



..and yep, 100 even.    Once you hit 99.9 you can never get that 100 back.   ..and that's from Jan of '99.   My eBay account will be old enough to buy beer in a couple months. lol

Ebay won't let you leave feedback?


That might explain why I only get 6 or 8 per month.

Earl needs some 2 stroke parts on there, specifically some RZ350 stuff! :icon_smile:

What the hell?!?!?!?!    Ebay has lost there damn mind lately.    I sold a 15# vacuum brake conversion kit and noticed one day, they chanced it to a small flat rate box.  Actual postage cost me something like $40 and I got to collect $6 (that ebay keeps 10%).

Those rocker buttons are supposed to be $4.50 shipping no matter what the quantity and that's what it shows on my end.   Ebay knows what they weight and they looks to be gouging the crap out of international buyers.   

   That ended today though. I fired paypal for their stupid ass ''we keep the 3% when you give refunds'' policy.  When eBay collects the money, they kill off global shipping.
 I had two people 'rent' vac brake conversions kits from me back to back, and it turns out the CSRs say it point blank cannot be refunded...    a manager can do it in about 5 seconds (after you jump through all the BS to get one on the phone without 'getting cut off'). 

They've lost their mind if they think I'm going to pay them over $20 just to kick me when I'm down. ESP when my kits come back missing parts.


   I'm about ready to fire eBay to.  I dig helping people out and seeing stuff I built on peoples cars, but I'm about tired of paying for it.    I need to get off my ass and teachmyself how to build earlbrownracin g.com and be done with all of them.

I still have a few boxes of YSR50 wheel bearings laying around.  I wish I could find an old auction and relist them.  It was a pretty good racket considering most people don't realize that bearings are just bearings.  Back then I used to sell stuff just for fun to turn the goofy stuff I bought into a wash.  That was way back in the day when listing stuff took about 2 minutes and everything was an auction, instead of buy-it-now's.   Ebay was a treasure hunt for oddball stuff.

   I've never owned the first RZ part.  Actually, I've never been a big fan of them.   Especially after seat time on my TZ250.  RZ's like that certain 'something'.... like a power wheelie in the middle of 3rd.

    and the ability to hoist the rear wheel in the air at over 100. :D
