E-BAY???

I bought my New 02 945 W/2 mi on it in may off of E-bay.For $7500.oo The ONLY reason I bid on it was it was through A DEALER. I look on there from time to time to see what's out there. What I don't get is. What the Hell are these SCAM clowns hoping to get outta there OUTRAGEOUS Asking Prices?? I mean only a crack head would EVEN think about buying say an 02 or 03 W/1200 mi for less then min $7200.oo

Re: E-BAY???

Sometimes people need money fast.

I found my 929 on ebay, with the seller within an hour drive. I just checked the bike out in person and paid then. If it's a scam the seller won't even give you their address and you're out nothing.

Re: E-BAY???

When I was in search of a '54 I found one in NY and like brian said, when I asked for their address the VIN, they never replied, what I did to test them was ask simple questions to see how fast they replied, then when I asked for the VIN, they didnt reply at all. That was fun since I sent them like 100 emails over the next few weeks, just for fun.

Stegen,

What exactly happened? I've used e-bay to buy/sell lots of things. However, I've not purchased a big ticket item.

Learn from mistakes and pass them on, that's what I say.

Waitaminute.........................
Are you saying that $7200 for an '02 954 is outrageously low?
That's actually on the high side of things.

No I said "$7200 min for an 02/03 W/1200 mi or less" as an example.They're out there saying "Buy Now Price's Below $3000.oo or way less. The price that is the main issue is some rediculously EXTREMELY LOW Price & my question Is WHAT ARE THEY HOPING FOR!
