Re: For thiefs?

Ebay auction for a frame. *But the buyers identity is kept private. *Why else would you want to keep your identity private when bidding on a frame?Link

Re: For thiefs?

Some people make the auction private so you can't contact their bidders and tell them how they are getting screwed.

Why would you pay $3200 for a frame?

Re: For thiefs?

Yeah I was thinking that too, the $3200 part. However I never thought of keeping it private for that reason.

Re: For thiefs?

This really is a strange one. Was the buyer the seller, just out fishing for a 'sucker'? I'd imagine someone could pull that on eBay. Like Conq stated, why would anyone pay $3.2K for a friggin' frame, especially one that isn't even photographed - all the guy did was post a pic of a new bike.

Good point...when I just started on Ebay, I was buying a Bora emblem for my Jetta...I had three emails come from other members telling me I was paying too much! I was like..wow, they are watching out for me!

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: For thiefs?

If it is a clean frame, then the seller should have the title (salvage or otherwise). Funny how the ad doesn't mention that.
