And already 13 bids. With 6 hours shy of a week left...

Doesn't look like beamspring keyboards are getting any cheaper any time soon.

And there are stickers all over it. Time to get out the nylon scraper.

That's more than I paid for my Audi. EDIT: PLUS its first MOT.

Holy cow. I'm sorry, but as cool as those boards are, that seems a little overboard.

It's not even the best or rarest or most interesting model of beamspring. I mean it's an incredibly good keyboard, don't get me wrong, but jeez Oo .

I wouldn't consider paying over $500 for one of these. At these prices I should start dropping leaflets from an airplane so I can find some good deals locally.

Well, it does lack a few features such as power steering, petrol injection, a right wing mirror, and a boot that opens xD . It's a cool car though, I love oldies ^^ .
