    Ebay scam!!!

    I was looking at bikes on ebay today and there seems to be a bunch for sale for about $3000-5000 less than the real value. I email a couple of the sellers and they danced around my questions. I am pretty sure that it is a scam because they say that they will ship the bikes for free and that they are comming from europe even though they are listed as located in Canada.

    Scam for sure.Anything that seems too good on ebay is 99% a scam.

    For sure its a scam. Stay away form that if they are dodging questions. The bikes are probably hot...if they even exist at all.

    BTW..Been lurking on this site for a few days now. Just wanted to say that this is a great bunch and I am looking forward to reading all the great posts from everyone. I'll be riding by the end of this summer

    STay away as far as you can! The licensing system is different in Europe, which means it is easy to get a hot bike into North America and still have paperwork for it. The only way you could really be safe would be to check the frame# and contact the manufacturer to see where this bike should be. If the bikes are hot, the European branch would have the frame number on their black list.
