"I sent you a respectable response, no reason to come on to a general forum and be a dick about it."
Like I said I'm wasn't trying to be a dick. And it was a respectable response, but I don't need to debate about the value of these wheels. It's pretty simple, either you want or you don't; if you do offer me something; if not then just close the post and go on. And by the way I'm no salesman, just an enthusiast offering up an available part to other enthusiasts. Maybe e-bay would be a better place for these, just thought someone here might like them.
"After all, you can get beautiful new ones at 1977 for about $210 for front and back."
Not including shipping, of unknown quality, after market not factory, no known crossover parts; it's not exactly the same thing (don't get me wrong those do look really nice).
I searched for about an hour to find a reference for the value of these, not a single post had a price, hence in my post I asked everyone to make an offer, which no one did (but I got plenty of opinions). Mopedwarehouse.com has them for $125 each for just the rim. So I picked a value that seemed reasonable to me (if I really wanted mags I'd drop over $200 on really nice set, which these are). Also I haven't see any others for sale recently; have you?
My orignal add should have read, "If someone really has to have some puch 17" snowflake rims I've got a set that I'm not using right now and could possibly be persuaded to part with, if you would like to make me an offer please feel free".
Bottom line; the rims are for sale make me an offer.
