Does he offer free shippind any where? Can't register bike where he lives.Selling for widow,sick friend or reative?Have to be preapproved bidder,contact through his e-mail and not fee-bay?Any where you click you get a log in page?

There are lots of legit bike sellers but the biggest problem is people don't do enough resarch and take the sellers word for what they are buying and are not happy when they get their bike,car,truck.Go to the Motors board and there is a post on what to look for in scams and more on people who have been burned or so they think on sales gone bad.I would buy local then you can go and SEE what you are buying. Good luck
