Missing 3 bulbs and where's the motor to make it rotate ? sad, sad, sad

Possibly. I'd still say that's a bold theory. Don't these lights have a dome-like covering that's transparent and often tinted in some color or another?

And a metal base to mount it to something....sad x 3 :(

But it appears to be both standing on its own and of some metallic construction, so a base surely has to be there.

We're getting really nit-picky and overanalyzing this. There's a bulb in it, so it's a light, just as advertised. The other three round slots are for aerodynamics, ventilation and maybe bulb placement customization.

I found a manual for this exact light on ebay. It was a rare handwritten first draft on lined paper and it sold for a very fair $100. It was even autographed by its designer, Fred Signal.

It looks like it's in top shape. In fact, it looks so good anyone should ask if he has two of them at that price. OMG!!!!!

It has a Stingray. Domes don't appear to be included. This guy's stuff is absurdly pricey.

I have two exactly like that with domes and alley lights. I never would have thought about a price like that. For what I paid for them 20 years ago. It's laughable at that price.

Agree. It's a ludicrous price considering we'll, everything. Condition isn't great and it's an LP6000. I have a bit of a soft spot for them, but they're nothing special. This guy charges ridiculous prices for his stuff. I think that he had or has a Heliobe for oh jeez...some stupid price.

It's not very friendly to people like us who collect or for someone that is reminiscing about the past. I hope people recognize what he is doing and don't get suckered out of their money.

If it's the seller I think it is, a lot of his listings mention security and use as movie props. He could care less about collectors. What he was asking for Excaliburs and MXs was INSANE.

I went to click on this link to see what it was about.. and I was like oh yeah.. that guy.
Never a good reaction to have. I read the posts in the thread, specifically yours and wow. The guy doesn't just gouge buyers, he rips a trench in them.

In my case, it was summed up as he tried to change the deal after we agreed upon a price. Then tried to pass it off as ebay.. so I walked away.

As I said in my other thread Caveat Emptor.

Here are some Excaliburs plus a mini Excalibur. Of course a couple are from lightbarguy. On the plus side, the one that has no domes actually comes with the original domes!

I'd give him $400 shipped for 2 complete bars and maybe the one without the domes in a package deal.

Which is a reasonable offer to anyone except lightbarguy. @Stampeed Valkyrie can attest to that seller's crappiness extending beyond his awful prices.

It's the mini RX whose price converts to $620.37 USD that slays me. That'd be a ludicrous price for a full sized one, let alone a mini.

The guy is either high on drugs all the time or isn't taking his proper mental medication. The prices just are so outrageous to even fathom to list at the amounts he is listing for.

My guess that he's high as hell and also not taking his meds. Same for anyone who buys from him.

Or he's just a profiteering crook and his buyers are either ill-informed or have more money than brains.

In reference to the above post, @Stampeed Valkyrie I know you've had dealings with him, but you're one of the exceptions to the above statements about lightbarguy's buyers. You just had lightamin AD24, TS12 deficiencies that impaired your judgment ;).

You had a few lightamin deficiencies at that time, I think.

I'd say that this fella's being a bit ambitious. The comments in the photo are his. At least he's honest, I'll give him that. He tells you how the bar's screwed up before he gouges you and lets you know that the bar was flashing. Well golly gee! The word 'plastic' seems to befuddle him a bit, but we all can get what he's getting at: the bar's jacked.

I've seen the same SVP 1166, 1168 and 1185 dash lights that have been listed for sale on Ebay for going on THREE YEARS now because their price is so extortionately outrageous. They're literally going on their 3rd year on Ebay and I can only guess the seller is waiting for that one stupid person who will come along and buy one of them. When I post a listing on Ebay I price it at a fair amount to SELL. I just don't get these people though...
