There is an EP-2 Bipolar Milwaukee Rd electric on ebay for Buy it Now for only $300!

The catch is.... it is LOCAL pickup only.

You only have to go to Moscow to get it.

 :D

Already ended "due to an error in the listing". Such as maybe a missing zero? Or maybe two missing zeros? :trollface:

Goody. Maybe I could make a road trip out of it. Oh. That Moscow.

...mike:  That was my first thought:  "Which Moscow?"

I know of three offhand, and there are probably many more.

Going there to get it would make for a great Wes Anderson-style movie.

It says "contact seller for shipping options".
I bought a Kato engine from Russia last year and shipping costs were normal European shipping costs, much less than from USA.
Or is the embargo the problem?

I think he meant the trade tariffs on the news lately.

Even if those get enacted, won't that happen sometime in the future (like months away)?  And I thought it was on China (Not Russia).    :|

I don't think tariffs usually apply to single-item sales between individuals.  On the other hand, relations between Russia and the USA aren't the greatest right now, so there could be issues with postal service.  As far as I know, unless the seller is on one of the USA's lists of Russians one can't do business with, there would be no legal problems.
