I'm assuming that decreases the value for everyone else... but since I didn't list a price, I should start high

I think you're just fine selling it...we give away thousands of dollars worth of door and raffle prizes every year...the idea is to get the company name and product out there in the public eye....

In other words, one would raffle a $1000 prize by selling 1000 tickets at $2 each. Meaning that the raffle organizer would ordinarily make a profit, so they shouldn't really care what you do with the raffle item.

Yeah but I don't need shocks or anything suspension related unless I'm going to give it to Ronnie to try to level out his 110.

won't help with a 110. For a 90/D1/RRC only I think.

Do it. Auction style is usually the least offensive as the market sets the price instead of the seller.

The only issue in your comment(not an issue) is that the raffle organizer isn't paying for the product, the vendor gave them the item to give away. So of course the organizer doesn't care what you do with it, they're making the money and they're at 100% profit(well, not that they're making money, the club is). This thread was referring to the vendor that gave it away caring(we don't, except for you Jafir.)

The difference between English and American humor right there ... In English the implication in funny ... In American the explanation is funny.
