Lowballed an auction... here I am. I bid an absurdly low amount on a K1000 I saw on eBay, and I was kinda missing my old one anyway (it was stolen outta my van years ago), and
was shocked to find that I'd won. So... now I'm waiting for it to be shipped to me, and hoping that it really is in good working order as claimed.
Heck, even if it needs a CLA and some minor repair, I may be able to get it right for less than what a market-value K woulda cost me.

*fingers crossed*

Yeah, it has a 28/3.5 Super Takumar.
It's been a couple days, I've paid for the thing already and still waiting for the first peep from the seller.

edit: I got the first and second peep all at once a few minutes ago. He assures me that the camera is in good working order, and that the delay is due to his father's recent death (what terrible timing). I googled him and everything he said can be backed up, so I'm a lot more comfortable than I'd been getting. He says he can ship the camera out by Thursday.
