Huh. This has a pre-approved bidder only stipulation, which people on this board have said is a sure sign of a hoax. The seller apparently has a lot of mostly positive feedback though. WTF?

Well, my daddy said there's no such thing as a free lunch, so I'll stand back and watch this with interest.

If this is the right auction, i emailed the guy and here is what he sent back. Feel for it once (kinda), not again:

Hi,
Thank you for your e-mail and sorry for my late reply but I had an internet provider problem. My name is Rama Sinha and i am glad you are interested on my HONDA CBR929RR. Well,I have to let you know the HONDA CBR929RR is in perfect shape, and it has only 3600 miles and a clear NY,USA title. It has now flaws,scratches or dents. It never been in an accident,never dropped. Always took good care of it, and I'm the original owner. I've moved from NY,USA in Amsterdam,Netherlands 5 months ago and I will ship the bike from here supporting the shipping taxes,insurance and handling via DHL so you will receive the bike in maximum 3 days. The price that I hope to obtain is $3100 US and if you agree with this price we can start to complete the transaction. I prefer money order because in this way i will ship the HONDA CBR929RR in the same day you make the payment, also I want to make this deal asap because I want to buy something else. I will wait your e-mail.
Thanks,
Rama

Very good, Steg !

Wonder why the guy has good feedback, or did he hijack another person's account?

I figured it was too good to be true. I am 22 - 1 when it comes to ebay. Still working on #23.

A friend on mine's neighbor fell for that scam on an R6. He paid his $ through a fake escrow account and obviously never got the bike. Somewhere in the neighborhood of ten other people "bought" the same bike. The world is full of scumbags!
