The listing should be reported to Ebay. The sellers ask for a really high shipping price so they get more money without Ebay cutting into their profits.

That used to be the case, but from what I understand ebay's fee comes from the selling price plus shipping combined now. They did this so people wouldn't overcharge for shipping and rob them of their fee. Not a seller myself, but that's how it was explained on another forum.

I'm wondering if he just made a mistake.

It says 140.10, but could easily be 14.10 with an extra zero added by accident.

Anyway, I sent him a message asking about the shipping.

Thats why you see so many people now offering free shipping so you dont get charged a fee for shipping.

I'm suspecting shipping will be at least $100
When I bought my cab the shipping was right around $100

Hello everyone! I'm the rascal that bought that NOS cozy cab on ebay. I just got it installed on my 1050. Wow it was really clean but it came off a hydrostatic tractor and mine is a gear drive. I had to custom make the brackets for the gear drive. I went to TSC and bought some flat steel stock. I fired up the torch and made the rear brackets that attach to the base of the seat. Four hours later it's done. I have the original tractor cab company manual that helped me figure out how to make the brackets. If any body is interested in a copy of the manual I will try to add it too the manual section. I'm glad to be a new member Thanks. Steve.........

Welcome to GTtalk, Steve. Good to hear the cab worked out good. I was thinking of how nice one would be this morning as I was snowblowing on my 1253.
