For anyone that buys rod parts on ebay beware a seller that goes by the seller ID of aegir_49_12345.
Every once in a while I will snag parts like seats and such when they go for a good deal on Ebay. Have not had any issues with anyone until this bozo. Bought a seat from him last week listed as "New". Seat gets here and first off it may have never been used on a rod build but it must have been bouncing around in a drawer for the past 10 yrs because the hoods are all marred and scratched. Would have chalked that up to just "o well" if that were it, but then upon spinning the lock nut I see it jams up 3/4 the way down.
Contacted seller and the guy is a real jerk, trying to blame me for "buyers remorse". Yeah I have buyers remorse, remorse he sold me a junk seat that doesn't even work properly much less should not be sold as new.
Anyway just a heads you for anyone that buys parts on ebay, put this bozo on your blacklist to avoid issues.
