This look like a scam? 04 GSXR750 for $3100

It totally looks bogus to me...

http://adcache.cycletrader.com/5/1/8/68559118.htm

The pictures say "Overturf Powersports" which I looked up as a dealership in Illinois but the bike is supposed to be in Los Angeles. Then if you look closely, the rear tire you can see the green stripe on it showing that those tires are brand spankin new. Probably doesn't have 1300 miles on it.

That and the tank isn't dented in yet so you know it hasn't been used for it's intended purpose. High Chair wheelies!!!!

I read it as the engine size saying 1300cc, not miles. But maybe I'm not reading it right.

Bah! It's a scam.
A gsxr-750 with a 1300cc engine? Sure it is.

You've already figured it out with the ultra low price (bankruptcy story or not)

Stupid thieves.

Re: This look like a scam? 04 GSXR750 for $3100

For giggles I inquired..... Ready for this!!!!!!!!

dear sir,

Me and my partner supplied capital for the purchase of a bankrupt store stock.
Now we are trying to sell the remaining stock,and that is why we are selling
them so cheap.At the moment we are located in Portugal but you don't have to
worry about anything because all shipping charges will be supported by me so you
will receive your bike in 4 working days at most. We ship all packages having
written on them "display unit, no comercial value" or as a gift so you don't
have to pay any additional taxes like customs or dutys.
They deliver these in best conditions and best time at your door.They will bring
it to your home in a crate. There will be no other for you to pay except for the
price and the money transfer fee.I have all papers from the factory (owner
manual,keys...) and i will send these along with the TITLE and all that you need
there to register it.Some words about the bike:perfect condition,No damage,no
scratches or dents,, no hidden defects, and it is as advertised.
as soon as we agree upon the trasaction terms will make the S&H arrangements and
schedule a pickup with Airborne.For the payment it is the best to use Western
Union as i can send them (make the shipping) in the same day i receive the
payment confirmation from you. . As soon as the validation will be made i will
proceed with shippingin the same day.I will send you the parcel traking#. At the
arrival please notify me by email. If you are not satisffied with what you
receive you have a 20 days trial period.
here is my cell phone number if you want to call:0040742233581.it has all
international prefixes added so you will have to dial the exact # i gave you.
please let me know your answer asap to procede with this deal.
best regards,

Lover of all small woodland creatures.

Don't forget the 20 day trial period, too!! I wonder if he'll cover the return shipping.
