VVT ? solenoid on eBay

Saw this on eBay, listed as "Idle solenoid - screws into valve cover" but I assume it is actually a VVT solenoid.

My Spider has the centrifugal operated VVT. Thought someone might be interested. No bids with starting price of $68.99 Don't know if that is a good price or not...

Item # 110019277671

That appears identical to the solenoid on my Twin Spark Alfa 75 engine.

VVT = Variable Valve Timing. The intake camshaft is triggered to advance for better performance at speed and smoother idle & lower emmisions below the set speed.

Our '84 model has a VVT that is advanced by centrifugal force & oil pressure. Later '84 models and newer are triggered by a solenoid controlled by the computer.

Yup, that's the electronic VVT solinoid.
