Is ebay dead?

Is it me or does it seem like ebay is dead? I've been lookin around a ebay the past couple weeks just to see what some used parts are going for and stuff seems to be going pretty cheap or not selling at all. Like a few years ago it was nothing to see a zx-10 engine car kit sell for $1800-2300. Now it seems like they're struggling to get a bid over $500? Or fairings, tanks ect.....don't seem to demand a high bid anymore either. Whatz going on? I guess itz a buyers market right now? The reason I'm askin about this is b/c I have some stuff I wanna sell. But from the looks of it, I won't be getting much on ebay? Anyone else took notice of this?

Hey... I just bought a new KBC Racer-1 helmet, just like the one I already have, for only $50

So I'd say that I like eBay...

If you can't race fast, atleast you can look fast...

You guys should consider too that there are other avenues out there like craigslist that are taking up some of the market as well. Ebay has been flooded over the years by everybody and their brother wanting to make a buck and tarnishing a great tool by not being honest and not giving a good product or service. I have used it in the past and made some good dough but I'd likely use something else to get rid of my wares.
