Last time I was here, I had decided on buying the 2003 Ninja 500R but just recently that purchase fell through. Meaning I need a new bike to buy. After searching various places, I found on eBay that someone from Canada had put up a bike to sell (2005 Ninja ZZR6000 - Blue) and the bid was only 1000 CAD with one day left. Since it was only for private sellers, I left a message waited. Later that day, disappointingly, the item was taken off eBay. Today, I received a personal email from the owner stating such:
-The bike is in excelent condition.
-Located in Las Vegas,NV
-Will close this deal only in a secure way through eBay so we both are protected with vehicle purchase protection program(please check that on eBay). I will relist the bike on eBay and you will be able to use the buy now option.
-The bike are still US registered, the title is clear so you will not have to pay any custom taxes and also won't have any problems registering it in US or Canada.
-It is in perfect condition both mechanically and cosmetically. No damage whatsoever,no scratches or dents, no hidden defects.
-Price is $2,800us with shipping and insurance included.
-Shipping is free with insurance included. The bike will be insured at the delivery service.
Now, I need to know everything possible about purchasing a bike from across the border. I have no experience with purchasing a vehicle let alone one from the US. What kind of things I should look for and watch out for.
Anyone who can help or has had personal experience it would be greatly appreciated. Leave me a PM and I can give out my contact information so I can get in touch and discuss with experienced bikers. I'm really really looking for a bike for this summer and this might just be it!
thanks so much,
