So this gorgeous Repsol 1000 comes up for sale on Craigs List at a wayyy too good to be true price, and this is the response I got upon inquiry:
Hi , reply directly to firstname.lastname@example.org ,
The bike is here with me in London . It is in perfect condition and it has all the documents . It's last registration is
in Toronto .. I worked with Samsung in Toronto for a year and i used this bike to get to work and back .
We will use a Company that acts as a 3'rd agent between us :
Let me explain step by step :
1 All you have to do is send me your full name and address and i will make all the arrangements .
2 I will take the bike at them and it will be prepared for transport and all the legal documents will be made ( sales
contract . warranty , insurance for transport , etc )
3 They will give us a tracking number that can be verified on the website of the company
4 The company will contact you with details on what to do next ( payment , ETA ) .
5 They will hold the bike and you will have to send them the money .
6 You will receive the bike in max 10 working days and you will have 5 days to test it and verify all the documents .
7 If by any reason you don't like it all you have to do is give it back to the guys at the shipping company and you will
get an 100% refund . If you like it all you have to do is give your ok and i will get the money .
This is very simple so if you are interested just go ahead and send me your full name and address .
Here are some extra pictures .

The bike is in perfect condition . It rides and runs perfect . No scratches , no dents and it has never been down . All the
services have been done professionally and i only used original oil and parts . I am for the moment in UK ( England ) but
the bike has CA documents . The price is 3000 + 500 Transport to your house 3500 CA$ total . There will be no
custom or import tax because this is an Canadian bike so it's just like buying a local bike . I am selling because if
i would register the bike here it will take a lot of time and it will also be expensive so i will like to sell it back in
CA where i purchased the bike in the first place . We will use a 3'rd party company ( ESCROW ) this way we will both be
safe and you will get to test and see the bike before i will get any money . Also i will be covered . Please let me know if
you are interested and i will send you more pictures and details .
Thank you for your interest .
