you haven't purchased one yet, are you sure it's you that's not being sensible about price, some of the ribs i've seen for sale i could buy and sell in bits for more money than they want for them

I think you are right
i can buy new for the cost of some of the used one i have viewed.
at least that way i will get what i want.
not many good ribs out there, eaither . with the cost of fuel rising by the week, it can only get better for me.
