Difficult to understand the mentality of some one willing to blow that much money on a strap......

Looks like just 2 bidders fighting it out, hopefully one wasnt the seller ;)

I honestly don't know if I should feel sad for or angry at someone who is so fricken mentally ill that they will pay nearly £200 for a short length of Pirelli webbing. They certainly need sectioning for their own good!

As Nick says, these are very easily made using a length of old Pirelli webbing from the bottom of an early seat or if you want to splash out, you could buy a new bit;

It REALLY, REALLY pisses me off that people are so unbelievably STUPID!

And if it is someone on here who is that mental, YOU NEED YOUR HEAD EXAMINING!

I'm sure at one point that battery strap was over £200, then a few hours later just over £190, then finished just over £180...

I've bought a few bits form this local seller, a really nice guy who is having a clearout after restoring a '59 and a few other 60s Minis. Worth keeping an eye on his auctions.
