Wankel on e-bay

A Wankel engined pump has just sold on e-bay. I bid on it, but it rapidly
ascended far beyond my reach. Is there something about it I don't get or are
they really this sought after?

Didn't Eric Brian do an article on one of these tiddlers in SEM some years back, they were part of a rig made by someone like 'Tematic' or some such name?
'engines_r_us' took the credit for pushing the price up most, although a couple of low feedback bidders were in there as well, helping him along, both August 06 registrations and both with 6/4 and 4/6 names (letters/numbers)

Eric has kindly got in touch, the company was "Tequipment Ltd". I had a look for them on Google but nothing related turned up.

Wahoo! The searchable SEM index I've been boring myself to death over is starting work!

Actually I believe it was rbooth7180 who must have put in a 499 pound top limit and engines_r_us had to keep upping the ante until he passed the limit imposed by the previous bidder.
I guess he was probably a bit pissed that the winner just bid 10 pounds more and got it...
Interesting engine though, I would like to see and hear it run.

I think rbooth7180 had a top limit of £141. simonthebike had a top limit somewhere above £510 and engines r us kept upping his bid to find it but gave up at £500
