How is this done? You just walk around and take photos of random bikes in public and then post them for sale?

Re: Is this for real!

This explains alot:

1. Check the seller's reputation
No feedback reviews at this time

Re: Is this for real!

Salvage title and a repaint maybe?

I was asked why I bought a Duc for my first bike. I figure if I'm going to die crying and screaming like a little girl, I might as well look good doing it.<br /><br />WOOHOO. The ugly duckling is back on the road. Nothing like a magic marker to fix paint scratches.<br /><br />CURRENT MODS: <br />bar end mirrors, new front brakes w/ Brembo Goldlines, Chopped tail, Clear Alternatives integrated taillght w/ stock red lens, LED front blinkers, 14T front sprocket, 44T rear sprocket.

why bother taking the photos yourself when they're readily available all over the interweb?

He'd tell you to send him a Western Union transfer for $3200 and he'd have the bike shipped for free to your location. Although he'd spell most of that wrong and it would probably all be in caps.

It's a scam, he lists a higher reserve than "buy it now" so that potential buyers call him or e-mail him to buy it and they don't have Ebay protections. Notice the "buy it now" isn't listed as a real ebay option, it's only an option if you contact him.

Scam. Don't look.

Re: Is this for real!

Beware!!! Cash Only! ------ I think that says it all.

If he were reputable, he'd use paypal or some other form of payment.

I have been noticing alot more of these adds since they changed Ebay motors look. Why?
